The Metro Mapping Foundation's mission is to improve and promote healthcare and the well-being of patients, their loved ones and caregivers through the methodology of Metro Mapping.
When care pathways are clearer for patients, relatives and their caregivers, everyone can participate and collaborate better. We see that the service design methodology Metro Mapping contributes to improving often complex care pathways. The Metro Mapping Foundation is therefore committed to stimulating scientific research, further development and application of this methodology in healthcare.
Through its work, the Metro Mapping Foundation will contribute, that the methodology Metro Mapping:
- provides inspiration for scientific researchers to continue contributing to the development and evaluation of Metro Mapping.
- is further developed, keeping the visual language and basic idea consistent, especially where exchange between care providers is involved, in order to create a new unambiguous standard for the development of care paths, at least in the Netherlands and Europe. This will allow users in and service designers for different healthcare institutions to learn from each other and exchange Metro Maps and related tools;
- remains accessible to healthcare professionals to use, with or without support from third parties, e.g. service designers;
- is not used without recognition being given to the creators.
