    Towards Sustainable Quality Improvement

    Approach

    Sana is a cross-disciplinary organization, including clinicians, engineers, policy, public health, and business experts along the entire healthcare value chain. Our approach is to democratize access to quality healthcare through open source technologies, democratize knowledge through the exchange of learning across partners, and to democratize access to global networks of multidisciplinary experts. We believe that geniuses abound in our partner countries, and these geniuses are more likely to develop sustainable and scalable solutions, as they better understand the local problems and environment.

    Collaboration

    Assembling multidisciplinary teams (engineers, clinicians, public health, policy, and business) to foster a design thinking approach to building solutions.

    Co-Creation

    Designing solutions together with local partners, to ensure that solutions are customized and effective for the local environments.

    Capacity Building

    Training the next generation of informaticians and health innovators to promote a movement towards quality improvement and drive sustainable local innovation.

    Geniuses Are Everywhere...

    Nurture Them.
