Achieving vertical integration: new models of care

The Five Year Forward View sets out a number of new and different models of care to transform local health and care economies – primarily describing the Multi-Specialty Community Provider (MCP) model and the Primary and Acute Care System (PACS) model for population care management.

Regardless of the preferred model of delivery in any particular care economy, the final destination is likely to be the same – single organisations that are held accountable by commissioners and the public for delivering improved outcomes for their local population or community.  In doing so, new Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) will need to integrate services across traditional organisational boundaries; manage directly employed staff and wider supply chains; and be given the freedom by commissioners to decide on public health investments and shape service models.

Implementing ACO type models of care will require both commissioners and providers to think strategically about the journey required over the next 3-5 years; how they develop shared visions for the future of their local care economies; and how they work in partnership to lay the foundations required to underpin successful.

The session will be led by Gareth Hartley from Attain. We very much look forward to seeing you on the 22nd September for a lively, stimulating – and ultimately productive – morning.
