Abstract

PURPOSE:

To explore how converging fields of co-creation and positive deviance may increase value in healthcare.

METHODS:

Informed by research in positive deviance, patient engagement, value co-creation, and quality improvement, we propose a positive deviance approach to co-creation of health.

RESULTS:

Co-creation has shown to improve health outcomes with regard to multiple health conditions. Positive deviance has also shown to improve outcomes in multiple healthcare and patient community environments.

CONCLUSION:

A positive deviance co-creation framework may aid in achieving improved outcomes for patients, care teams and their respective healthcare organizations.

KEYWORDS:

Co-production; Patient engagement
