Considering 'complex adaptive systems'

In the second phase of Future Health Systems, Professor David Peters at JHSPH has begun collaborating on a stream of work on ‘complex adaptive systems’. Complex adaptive systems (CAS) are described as such because, in addition to being comprised of many interacting components and agents, they have the capability to self-organize, adapt or learn from experience – what are sometimes known as emergent properties. Most social, biological and economic systems can be considered CAS, including health systems.

Today FHS have launched its complex adaptive systems theme page with a wide range of products that begin to explain our approach to CAS and why we think it’s such an important topic to consider.
