Personalisation: lessons from social care

Paper that shows how the personalisation agenda encourages innovation, offering the potential to create new markets around localised and individual needs, to focus fiscal resources directly and discretely, and to enable small groups of individuals to ‘positively disrupt’ a complex and opaque system.

It begins with a potted history of personalisation, and ends with five recommendations for the implementation of personalisation, whatever the sector, in a way that increases the availability and use of new, community­based approaches to support and inclusion.

Getting it together for mental health care: payment by results, personalisation and whole system working

Paper that considers how the two policy initiatives of Payment by Results (PbR) and personalisation need to be developed in tandem with one another, and in the context of whole system commissioning, if the aims of both are to be achieved.

It raises some questions for discussion about whether personalisation and PbR can meet the challenge of a more radical whole system approach and what impact success or failure will have on mental health services and outcomes for individuals. It concludes with some specific issues that need to be considered nationally and locally.
