A survey on the practices and tools for identifying individuals to integrated care and support

A survey on the practices and tools for identifying individuals to integrated care and support
11
Apr

Person-centered integrated care is an actual topic of development in the European countries, because the amount of people who need and use several different services is growing fast, and at the same time the budgets of care are diminishing. The individuals who might benefit from integrated care should be identified as early as possible to provide them timely, seamless and cost-effective integrated care and support.

National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland, is performing a research project the aim of which is to find and map different models, practices and tools for identifying the individuals who might benefit from integrated care. The research focuses on the public social and health care delivery organizations in Europe. We are interested in any kind of models, practices and tools in use or under development by which the social and health care professionals can find and identify the individuals for integrated care. The project is funded by the Prime Minister’s Office, Finland, and its timetable is from February 2019 to June 2020. The results of the research will be utilized in the development of the practices and tools for identifying these individuals in Finland.

We kindly hope that You answer yourself or forward this survey to some relevant public social and health care delivery organizations, units, managers or professionals for answering. We do not try to achieve an exhaustive mapping, but rather to find different examples of practices and tools which might be adopted as well in Finland. The results of the research will be reported in English and shared to the respondents of our survey to be utilized in their own organizations.

The deadline for answering the survey is 12th of May, 2019.
