A discussion tool aiming at creating trust and transparency in perinatal shared care teams.

In the Netherlands, too many babies die around their birth. One of the causes is the sometimes difficult cooperation, communication and documentation between primary and secondary care professionals. AVA provides a shared space for discussion within the multidisciplinary meetings. The tokens provide tangible discussion points which can be placed around the symbolic patient. The board is linked to a digital system containing patient files, joint patient discussions and care paths. (Developed in collaboration with Philips and Máxima Medisch Centrum).
