A Perspective paper: Mergers and integrated care: the Quebec experience by Louis Demers: “(…) If mergers are not necessary to increase integrated care, are they more useful or more detrimental to this form of care?”
Two Research and Theory papers:
– Multidisciplinary group performance – measuring integration intensity in the context of the North West London Integrated Care Pilot by Matthew James Harris, Felix Greaves, Laura Gunn, Sue Patterson, Geva Greenfield, Josip Car, Azeem Majeed, Yannis Pappas: “Multidisciplinary Group meetings
(MDGs) are seen as key facilitators of integration, moving from individual to multi-disciplinary decision-making, and from a focus on individual patients to a focus on patient groups.”
– Successfully integrating aged care services: A review of the evidence and tools emerging from a long-term care program by Michael James Stewart, Andrew Georgiou, Johanna Irene Westbrook : “Reviewing the body of research reveals the importance of both designing programs with an eye to local context, and building in flexibility allowing the program to be adapted to changing circumstances.”
