© Springer International Publishing AG 2017. All rights reserved. This handbook gives profound insight into the main ideas and concepts of integrated care. It offers a managed care perspective with a focus on patient orientation, efficiency, and quality by applying widely recognized management approaches to the field of health care. The handbook also provides international best practices and shows how integrated care does work throughout various health systems. The delivery of health and social care is characterised by fragmentation and complexity in most health systems throughout the world. Therefore, much of the recent international discussion in the field of health policy and health management has focused on the topic of integrated care. "Integrated" acknowledges the complexity of patients' needs and aims to meet it by taking into account both health and social care aspects. Changing and improving processes in a coordinated way is at the heart of this approach.

© Perri P, Nick Goodwin, Edward Peck & Tim Freeman 2006. The book presents a novel theory of how networks of organizations work, what varieties are possible and how their strengths and weaknesses differ. The argument is illustrated using four case studies in which networks of firms and organizations in defence contracting, biotechnology, health care and combating crime and disorder are examined. The book will be of major interest to scholars and students of business and management, public management, public policy, organizational sociology and to practising managers.

© 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Building an affordable and effective national health system is a major preoccupation of governments around the world. Using illustrative case examples from different countries, this article provides an overview of the four principal components that make up the functions of a national health-care system - financing, purchasing (resource allocation), service provision, and stewardship. Each principal function is performed very differently internationally; this article provides a deconstruction of each, explaining and discussing these variances. It concludes with a discussion of those key system design factors that appear to contribute to the more effective national health-care systems.

© 2014 by IGI Global. All rights reserved. This chapter provides a thorough grounding in the meaning and logic of integrated care and the role of ICT. It begins with an overview that describes why integrated care has become a central theme to the reform of health and social care in the face of mounting demographic and economic challenges that require a new way of thinking about how care can be more cost-effectively delivered. Following an indepth analysis of what is meant by integrated care, including an interpretation of the various definitions and interpretations that have been provided, the chapter moves on to provide an understanding of the challenges faced when implementing integrated care programmes in practice and the key lessons in how systems of integrated care can be built. The role of information, communication, and technology as essential components for the success of integrated care is then considered together with an assessment of the future research agenda.

© 2018 The Author(s). Objective: As part of the EU-funded Project INTEGRATE, the research sought to develop an evidence-based understanding of the key dimensions and items of integrated care associated with successful implementation across varying country contexts and relevant to different chronic and/or long-term conditions. This paper identifies the core dimensions of integrated care based on a review of previous literature on the topic. Methodology: The research reviewed literature evidence from the peer-reviewed and grey literature. It focused on reviewing research articles that had specifically developed frameworks on integrated care and/or set out key elements for successful implementation. The search initially focused on three main scientific journals and was limited to the period from 2006 to 2016. Then, the research snowballed the references from the selected published studies and engaged leading experts in the field to supplement the identification of relevant literature. Two investigators independently reviewed the selected articles using a standard data collection tool to gather the key elements analyzed in each article. Results: A total of 710 articles were screened by title and abstract. Finally, 18 scientific contributions were selected, including studies from grey literature and experts¿ suggestions. The analysis identified 175 items grouped in 12 categories. Conclusions: Most of the key factors reported in the literature derive from studies that developed their frameworks in specific contexts and/or for specific types of conditions. The identification and classification of the elements from this literature review provide a basis to develop a comprehensive framework enabling standardized descriptions and benchmarking of integrated care initiatives carried out in different contexts.

© 2015, Igitur, Utrecht Publishing and Archiving Services. All Rights Reserved. Background: To address the challenges of caring for a growing number of older people with a mix of both health problems and functional impairment, programmes in different countries have different approaches to integrating health and social service supports. Objective: The goal of this analysis is to identify important lessons for policy makers and service providers to enable better design, implementation and spread of successful integrated care models. Methods: This paper provides a structured cross-case synthesis of seven integrated care programmes in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, the UK and the USA. Key findings: All seven programmes involved bottom-up innovation driven by local needs and included: (1) a single point of entry, (2) holistic care assessments, (3) comprehensive care planning, (4) care co-ordination and (5) a well-connected provider network. The process of achieving successful integration involves collaboration and, although the specific types of collaboration varied considerably across the seven case studies, all involved a care coordinator or case manager. Most programmes were not systematically evaluated but the two with formal external evaluations showed benefit and have been expanded. Conclusions: Case managers or care coordinators who support patient-centred collaborative care are key to successful integration in all our cases as are policies that provide funds and support for local initiatives that allow for bottom-up innovation. However, more robust and systematic evaluation of these initiatives is needed to clarify the ¿business case¿ for integrated health and social care and to ensure successful generalization of local successes.

Reform of the National Health Service in England will increase power and responsibility for family doctors. They will have a larger role in planning and buying health care including control of substantial budgets. This article examines the likely implications of the proposed reforms for primary care, and in particularly for family doctors. This article considers the effect of the new clinical role in commissioning health care, changes to the accountability structures, and the effect on competition and integration within health services. It also considers the effect of new financial incentives and the possibility of creating conflicts of interest. Copyright © 2012 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Background: All modern healthcare systems need to respond to the common challenges posed by an aging population combined with a growing number of patients with (complex) chronic conditions and rising patient expectations. Countries with 'stronger' primary care systems (e.g. the Netherlands and England) seem to be better prepared to address these challenges than countries with 'weaker' primary care (e.g. USA). The role of primary care in a health care system is strongly related to its organisation and funding, thus determining the starting point and the possibilities for change. Method: We selected the Netherlands, England, and USA as examples for the diversity of approaches to organise and finance health care. We analysed the main problems for primary care and reviewed strategies and practice models used to meet the challenges described above. Results: The Netherlands aim to strengthen prevention for chronic diseases, while England strives to improve the management of patients with multimorbidity, prevent hospital admissions to contain costs, and to satisfy the increased demand of patients for access to primary care. Both countries seek to reorganise care around the patient and place their needs at the centre. The USA has to provide sufficient workforce, organisation, and funding for primary care to ensure better access, prevention, and provision of chronic care for its population. Strategies to improve (trans-sectoral) cooperation and care coordination, a main issue in all three countries, include the implementation of standards of care and bundled payments for chronic diseases in the Netherlands, GP commissioning, federated and group practice models in England, and the introduction of the Patient-Centred Medical Home and accountable care organisations in the USA. Conclusion: Organisation and financing of health care differ widely in the three countries. However, the necessity to improve coordination and integration of chronic disease care remains a common and core challenge.

Telehealth and telecare innovations have the potential to improve quality of life, reduce unnecessary hospital and care home admissions, and support care integration by providing care and disease management from multi-disciplinary care teams linked remotely to users. About 1.7 million people benefit from telecare services in the UK, but telehealth services have only around 5000 users, many of whom receive services through the Department of Health's Whole System Demonstrator (WSD) Pilot Programme. There is an identifiable chasm between early adopters and wider uptake of telehealth and telecare solutions. Key barriers include lack of robust evidence on cost-effectiveness, of a consumer market and of interoperability of the technology between service sectors, and the implications for professionals and organisations of changing their established methods of practice. Telehealth and telecare could be combined to provide a common platform to integrate care for people requiring both health and social care support, but relatively few people are judged suitable for joint care. This is related both to the nature of the technology and the profile of those people who can use it, and to the different ways in which health and social care systems assess who is most 'at risk', which makes it difficult to assess which individuals might best benefit from an integrated response to their care needs. While there is considerable interest and policy momentum behind the adoption and diffusion of telehealth and telecare in England, more understanding of their benefits is required to convince commissioners and providers of its potential. © Pier Professional Ltd.

Scoping studies have been used across a range of disciplines for a wide variety of purposes. However, their value is increasingly limited by a lack of definition and clarity of purpose. The UK's Service Delivery and Organisation Research Programme (SDO) has extensive experience of commissioning and using such studies; twenty four have now been completed. This review article has four objectives; to describe the nature of the scoping studies that have been commissioned by the SDO Programme; to consider the impact of and uses made of such studies; to provide definitions for the different elements that may constitute a scoping study; and to describe the lessons learnt by the SDO Programme in commissioning scoping studies. Scoping studies are imprecisely defined but usually consist of one or more discrete components; most commonly they are non-systematic reviews of the literature, but other important elements are literature mapping, conceptual mapping and policy mapping. Some scoping studies also involve consultations with stakeholders including the end users of research. Scoping studies have been used for a wide variety of purposes, although a common feature is to identify questions and topics for future research. The reports of scoping studies often have an impact that extends beyond informing research commissioners about future research areas; some have been published in peer reviewed journals, and others have been published in research summaries aimed at a broader audience of health service managers and policymakers. Key lessons from the SDO experience are the need to relate scoping studies to a particular health service context; the need for scoping teams to be multi-disciplinary and to be given enough time to integrate diverse findings; and the need for the research commissioners to be explicit not only about the aims of scoping studies but also about their intended uses. This necessitates regular contact between researchers and commissioners. Scoping studies are an essential element in the portfolio of approaches to research, particularly as a mechanism for helping research commissioners and policy makers to ask the right questions. Their utility will be further enhanced by greater recognition of the individual components, definitions for which are provided. © 2008 Anderson et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Over the last ten years the traditional role of primary care in Great Britain has been undergoing major changes with the major impact being the introduction of what is termed "GP fundholding", a process by which GPs hold budgets to purchase care from hospitals on behalf of their patients. This paper addresses how the system of fundholding operates in practice and points out the difference between the new and the previous system in which the health authority would plan care for the whole of a district and costs by hospitals would be covered by an all-inclusive system. The paper studies the rationale of the introduction of the fundholding and examines the evidence on how successful the approach has been. With reference to a systematic literature review of the evidence on fundholding's outcomes undertaken by the author, the paper examines the evidence for and against fundholding under the following headings: efficiency, equity, quality, choice and responsiveness. The paper then addresses more recent changes to the British health care system and shows how these have changed the role of the family doctor irrevocablly.
