Description:
Designing and delivering integrated care for older people across local communities and hospitals is a multifaceted collaborative process between providers, users and carers. It involves changing the way health and social care is planned and delivered whilst ultimately focusing on patient experience, outcomes and quality of care. A compelling argument exists to change the health and social care delivery model in order to keep pace with changing population demographics and associated needs. Health and social care systems are recognising that sustainable strategies lie in a population-based health approach, including a focus on older persons as a key cohort (Gullery and Hamilton, 2015, Wodchis et al (2015). At the heart of this is the need for systems to move from acute, episodic care to longitudinal, coordinated and integrated care models, reflecting the growth in multi-morbidity and complexity of care needs.
