Integrated Care Solutions© Webinar: Frameworks for Assessing Integrated Care: The project Integrate (Europe) Thursday, 20 September 12:00pm – 13:00pm (GMT+1)
Integrated Care Solutions© Webinar: Frameworks for Assessing Integrated Care: The project Integrate (Asia Pacific) Friday, 21 September 08:00am – 09:00am (AEST)
There is a lack of evidence supporting ‘how’ to design, pilot, implement, assess, and scale-up innovations that support integrated care. Most existing diagnostic frameworks set out the key building blocks of an integrated care system, but are unable to articulate or untangle the highly complex dynamics and interrelationships between key factors. There is some understanding of this complexity, but approaches lack the ability to untangle complex relationships. There are many existing tools to support measurement of processes and outcomes, but very few are specifically tailored to integrated care.
This webinar will explore a range of assessment frameworks that are suitable for Integrated Care Systems with a special focus and synthesis through Project INTEGRATE. The Project INTEGRATE famework provides an evidence-based understanding of the key dimensions and items of integrated care that the research showed were associated with successful implementation. The framework aims to provide a conceptual basis for reflecting on the design and implementation of new integrated care programs/projects.
