The Integrating Health and Social Care Virtual Conference
September 22, 2021
We are living through the greatest challenge our health and care system has ever faced, yet, even in crisis conditions, everyone working in our health and care system has continued to deliver excellence. Critically, collaboration across health and social care has accelerated at a pace showing what we can do when we work together, flexibly, adopting new technology focused on the needs of the patient, and set aside bureaucratic rules. The Integration and Innovation White Paper.
Transforming the delivery of health and social care is needed to address the growing pressures due to funding constraints and the increasing complexity of needs for services. In an attempt to address these issues, various programs to integrate health services have been developed internationally, including The World Health Organisation Framework on integrated people-centered health service and the NHS Long-Term Plan.
In addition to the NHS Long Term Plan, the UK Government recently published their blueprint to health and social care integration, titled: Integration and Innovation: working together to improve healthcare for all. This document sets out the government’s legislative proposals for a Health and Care Bill. It aims to build on the incredible collaborations we have seen through COVID and shape a system that’s better able to serve people in a fast-changing world.
Some of the key areas listed within the plan include:
• Reducing bureaucracy: Removing the barriers that prevent NHS organisations from working together and enabling them to arrange services and provide joined-up care in the interests of service users
• Improving accountability and enhancing public confidence: Empower NHS organisations and give the public the confidence that they are receiving the best care from their health and care system, everytime they interact with it.
• Collaborative commissioning: Exploring ways of working more collaboratively and are seeking to align decisions and pool budgets between CCGs and NHS England, across CCGs, and between CCGs and local authorities
Join us at the Integrating health and social care virtual conference as we open the debate on the latest government plans to integrate health and social care providers to help improve healthcare for all.
This conference will provide a timely platform for service providers to meet up alongside NHS stakeholders to help drive improved collaboration and interoperability across the UK health system.©www.geneonline.com All rights reserved. Collaborate with us: email@example.com
