This seminar was an opportunity to discuss the role of Integrated Care Systems (ICS) in shaping the care in the communities they serve - looking at population health management, scaling up and local delivery.
In light of the commitment to roll out ICS across the country, delegates discussed the challenges and practicalities in scaling up to meet this goal - including:
- access to transformation funding,
- arrangements for governance, and
- delivering effective shared decision-making and resource management.
They also examined the future of the purchaser-provider split and health commissioning, looking at next steps for increasing efficiencies, the role of joint commissioning and the impact of shared budgets between local authorities and CCGs.
The agenda looked at what more will be needed to support ICS to join up care across local authorities, the NHS and wider system partners - including the call for the long term funding of adult social care.
Delegates assessed the opportunities for promoting prevention in ICS, with discussion on utilising shared resources and supporting collaborative working between commissioners, providers and local authorities.
Further sessions addressed the key barriers to moving forward with delivery - such as how to support the workforce to deliver integrated care.
Attendees considered the options for ensuring adequate training, education and recruitment and priorities for alleviating workforce shortages to cope with increased demand - such as the role of the third sector, volunteers and industry partners in innovating care provision and providing community care.
