Today, our health and care systems are fragmented, disease-centred, difficult to navigate and do not consider the whole person. As a result, too many people experience poor quality care, often in the wrong settings with undesirable outcomes.
IFIC’s Vision is that people, families and communities benefit from person-centred integrated care and support to maximise their health, wellbeing and independence
This vision is underpinned by six core values:
A people-centred approach that addresses physical, socio-economic, mental and emotional wellness
Through proactive multi-sectoral partnerships with people and communities at an individual, organisational and policy-level
Continuity of care that is provided across the life-course
Care that is integrated around people’s needs and expectations, effectively coordinated across multiple providers and settings
Care that is accessible and available to all
Care that is efficient, effective and of high value such that it contributes to sustainable development of care systems over time
Our Mission, as the leading international voice in integrated care, is to inspire, influence and facilitate the adoption of integrated care in policy and practice around the world
How does IFIC seek to achieve its vision?
Through leading the movement for change and in the development and exchange of knowledge.
Among academics, researchers, managers, health and care professionals, users, carers, policy and decision makers throughout the world.
Leading the movement for change
Operating as a centre for excellence and underpinned by a high quality and evidence informed approach, we seek to work in collaborative partnership with our beneficiaries to develop, test, apply and lead this movement.
We seek to do this through the development and exchange of ideas among academics, researchers, managers, health and care professionals, users and carers of services and, policy and decision makers throughout the World.
