Healthcare systems are challenged by unexpected medical crises. Established frameworks and approaches to guide healthcare institutions during these crises are limited in their effectiveness. We propose an Adaptive Healthcare Organization (AHO) system as a framework focused on the dynamic nature of healthcare delivery. Based on seven key capabilities, the AHO framework can guide single and multi-institutional healthcare organizations to adapt in real time to an unexpected medical crisis and improve their efficiency and effectiveness.
