Improving integration of care

There is a national emphasis on improving the integration of health care services. An older population and more frequent chronic conditions means outmoded organisation of services must be changed. Understanding what services are needed, where they should be delivered and that that are valuable to recipients is the purpose of this stream. Better co-ordination of primary care, community and hospital services is essential, as is better management of patient information. Priorities are keeping people away from acute care when they don’t need it and managing services near the end of life.
