Efficiency opportunities through health and social care integration


Whilst there is now evidence to show that greater integration and personalisation improves user experience and outcomes, there remains little evidence to demonstrate how financial savings will be delivered.

 

In order to address this lack of evidence, the Local Government Association has been working with Newton, councils and partners in five areas to undertake a robust assessment of the efficiency opportunities of integration across the health and social care system, to contribute to the developing understanding of what a truly sustainable model for health and care might look like and how this can be achieved.
