Strong collaboration between providers will form the bedrock of statutory integrated care systems. At this session, get a fresh perspective on how provider collaboratives are breaking down barriers and working across organisations at neighbourhood, place and system level to improve patient pathways and outcomes.
- A primary care network and community services provider are working together to appoint community posts – such as dieticians in care homes and occupational therapists – to support dementia and end-of-life care. Working shoulder-to-shoulder, they are developing education programmes, upskilling staff and reviewing medication. This has improved residents’ health, wellbeing and patient experience.
- Primary care, clinical commissioners and the voluntary sector are targeting areas with the highest health inequalities, offering thousands of appointments to those with complex needs and trauma. This has doubled mental health access for black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and provided clinical and social support that wraps around the individual.
- System-level collaboration, through the West of England Academic Health Science Network between twelve hospital trusts, has developed a wraparound care package for mothers and their pre-term babies, before and after birth.
- Three acute trusts faced with long paediatric waiting lists, worked together to reduce the waiting times for children ready for surgery. By running three all weekend surgical lists at one nominated site, they brought clinicians together, managed governance and risk, pooled resources and significantly tackled the waiting times.
The session is the latest in our Integration and Innovation in Action series, which highlights how our members and their partners are working together in new ways to address the major challenges facing the health and care system.
