Our expertise in health policy

Healthcare is on the verge of transformation. The well-known challenges such as demographic evolutions, technological progress, increase in the number of chronically ill patients, ageing population and financial limitations still pose a threat. In addition, COVID-19 has revealed the strengths and limitations of our healthcare system. Prevention, flexibility, integration of care, financing model, … are therefore the levers of the future.

A fundamental transformation requires behavioral change among all stakeholders. This behavioral change is only possible when the systems, that determine the dynamics of our healthcare model, are questioned. Based on practical knowledge from the field and supported by our experience in change and communication management, we can help policymakers to develop and monitor policy, adapt the underlying (care) systems, develop strategies and to set up optimal organizational structures. We substantiate this with facts and figures (health analytics) and in close participation with the stakeholders involved.

Policy development

Shaping strategy and organizational control

Defining strategic choices and converting them into an adapted workforce and an innovative organizational form.

Policy development

Behavioral change is only possible by adjusting policy and steering systems. 

Fundamental reformation of the existing care models allows to take full advantage of current challenges (demographic evolution, chronically ill patients, fragmentation of competences, …) and opportunities (e.g. technological evolution). This fundamental reform can only be achieved by questioning policies and underlying systems, such as quality and financing, in function of the desired outcome.

Möbius assists the government and its policymakers to arrive at new policy objectives through participation and consultation in order to be able to translate these into adjustments to the system. We do this by means of large-scale surveys and a participatory approach, by thorough statistical analysis and by comparing different scenarios around desired outcome and costs (cost-benefit analyses). Finally, we also believe in a strong communication to increase support and acceptance of the defined policy options. 

Operationalization and monitoring of policy

In a rapidly evolving context it is essential to be able to make quick adjustments.

Policy without monitoring is like going out without a compass. In order to implement policy effectively, it is important to strongly operationalize and monitor it closely. Operationalization can be achieved by providing a policy framework and setting up pilot projects within this framework. Monitoring is done by developing and continuously monitoring high-quality indicators that continuously evaluate the policy effort and effects.

As a supervisor of pilot projects, Möbius can offer support in the operationalization of your policy. 

In addition, we are the perfect partner to develop policy indicators and integrate them into an operational policy dashboard. This dashboard helps to determine which policy options are most effective and how the implementation of policy can be improved. Through smart reporting (supported by tools) and content-based interpretation, the policy maker has the right tools to put a continuous policy evaluation into practice.

Shaping strategy and organizational control

The effectiveness and efficiency of core assignments is largely determined by the way in which we make and steer choices.

Every public service, active in healthcare policy, faces unique challenges. A rapidly evolving landscape therefore places high demands on the policy maker and forces the latter to make choices. Effectiveness and efficiency are key words, especially in a fragmented landscape with many stakeholders. That is why it is important as a government department to make the right strategic choices, considering coalition agreements and evolutions in the landscape, to be on the same page and to build an organizational model that facilitates a culture of creativity, resilience and agility.

Möbius supports public services and organizations in defining strategic choices and helps to transform these choices into an adapted workforce and an innovative form of organization. We do this – depending on the desired objectives – in co-creation with employees, other policy partners, patient associations, involved actors and citizens. We base ourselves on new tools and techniques to enable participation and interaction (such as Howspace, Miro, …).
