Specialized, innovative and result driven

ACSION was founded in 2006 with the objective of assisting clients achieve better results in health care, with a specific focus on chronic care. But we think of ourselves as more than a consultancy. We aim to develop real solutions.  

In working with ACSION we were extremely pleased with their intimate knowledge of the specific sector (pharmacy). We benefited particularly from their expertise at unraveling the problem and the way in which we were lead towards a solution.

Wholistic perspective on care systems

We believe that it is essential to look at the value of health care. Looking at costs only, or looking at only parts of the system as is so frequently done nowadays, creates a real risk of suboptimal decision-making. The elements of the care system are communicating vessels. ‘Improvements’ in isolated parts can lead to detrimental results elsewhere in te system.

Hence, a holistic, system dynamics perspective is required. Care delivery, care finance and administration and care management are intertwined.  

ACSION showed us that there is still ample room for improvement in the care system on our island. Rather than looking for savings in one ‘silo’ (e.g. hospital care or primary care) they looked at the entire system and the interdependencies, to assess what care was delivered where, and for what care needs and what the optimum ought to be.
