John Øvretveit's work is based on the belief that organization and management can bring out the best and worst in people, and that the right organization design is critical for effective healthcare. A theme underlying his work is how practical research can contribute both to better care for patients and to "healthy work organization".
Dr. Øvretveit's current research examines implementation of management and organization improvements, coordination of care and safety. His research publications on leading value improvement explore the costs and savings of quality improvements. Some of Dr. Øvretveit's earlier work describes action evaluation methods for giving rapid feedback for service providers and policy-makers to improve their services.
