This independent report details the experience of seven localities in developing integrated care. It examines each against a range of factors, including care model, leadership, workforce, payment model and information flow. It concludes that it is possible to have significant impact in terms of improved health outcomes and financial sustainability, and sets out the key lessons for other localities to consider in embarking on integration themselves.

From Hospitals to Health Systems: The role of Trusts in capturing the integrated care opportunity in England

30 November 2016

Ben Richardson

England’s NHS faces the prospect of an ageing population, an increasing burden of chronic disease and flat cash. Against this backdrop there is a clear opportunity to deliver better care and a better patient experience at a lower cost.

This is often described as supporting people to live healthier lives, delivering care close to home, reducing reliance on hospital care and ensuring a seamless individual experience.  Integrated care is a term that is often used loosely. This paper aims to explore what the opportunities and challenges are with delivering genuinely integrated care both by examining the literature and evaluating concrete examples from the UK and internationally.
