Making integrated health and care a reality

15 Jun 2021
C - Breakout stage 5
System integration and collaboration

The true mark of a successful integrated care system will be its ability to quickly translate the multitude of changes coming through at a system level, into delivering better population health outcomes, better care and greater value for money for patients and service users.

This session will explore this topic, drawing on how a project in Essex is transforming care for older people by bringing together local authority and health partners across the county. The panel discussion will explore the experience of this partnership from the perspective of different system partners (not least the impact of doing this during a pandemic); the immediate and longer-term benefits of the programme for the people of Essex and the system; and how the work can provide a template for transformational change that could be replicated anywhere in the country.

For a snapshot of what the programme is all about, watch this very short trailer - the full version will be shown on the day.

This session is delivered in partnership with Newton Europe.
