Review that focuses on the role of integrated financial mechanisms in supporting and incentivising integrated care.
Policy report that looks at health and care services holistically, with the person, not the institution, at the centre. It proposes a set of recommendations that will focus on helping people stay well, manage their conditions and promote their independence; it suggests how incentives can be aligned across health and care organisations to encourage them to put people's interests first; and it encourages health and social care to work in partnership for their communities, without proposing expensive and distracting structural reorganisations.
Document that is based on a report prepared for ADSW at the time of the Public Bodies (Joint Working) (Scotland) Bill (Petch, 2013) and seeks to distill key evidence to assist health and social care partnerships in Scotland in their delivery of integrated care and support. It works from the premise that structural change by itself does not deliver the improved outcomes sought for service users and communities, unless equal or greater attention is paid to a range of other key factors.
Key points are as follows:
Report that synthesises evidence from seven case study programmes, each from a different country, that are successfully delivering integrated health and social care for older people with complex needs. The aim is to identify lessons for policy-makers and service providers to help them improve how care is designed and co-ordinated.
The LGA has partnered with NHS England, The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS), The Association of Directors of Children's Services (ADCS), Monitor, NHS Confederation and the Department of Health (DH) to deliver a programme of work carried out by Integrating Care and PPL.
The toolkit enables Health and Wellbeing Boards and local partners to understand the evidence and impact of different integrated care models on service users, as well as the associated impact on activity and cost to different parts of the health and care system.
Document that is the second review of research evidence completed for ADSW by Professor Alison Petch from IRISS on the factors that underpin best health and social care integrated practice.
The original document, An evidence base for the delivery of adult services, published in 2011, presented the evidence for considering factors beyond those of structural change when planning to improve integrated outcomes for individuals. This latest report further adds to the knowledge base by focusing on the key dimensions for effective implementation of change.
A guide to achieving integration and knowing when it's being done effectively.
Paper that is a result of an information-giving and consultation process which took place from mid-April to August 2013 and represents views gathered in individual and group meetings with voluntary sector service providers, large and small.
It was also influenced by discussions with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), commissioners at locality level, Third Sector Interface leads and policy makers and the body of work relating to workforce issues that has been conducted by CCPS.
Short animated video which helps to outline what is meant by 'integrated care' and explains how working in a joined up manner improves the patients care; helping them stay out of hospital and be treated at home.
Briefing that has been prepared to reflect some of the ALLIANCE's initial reflections and concerns in relation to the Bill, based on the series of discussions it had with members and partners to date.
