The burden of long term conditions

The burden of long term conditions

  • Almost one in three of the population (and half of those over 60) have a long term condition.

  • This group accounts for two thirds of the health spend.

  • The number of people with comorbidities is expected to rise by a third in the next ten years.

  • Common mental health problems affect about one in seven of the adult population, with severe mental health problems affecting one in a hundred.

  • These conditions fall more heavily on the poorest in society

The way services are organised utilised does matter

The Way Services Are Organised & Utilised Does Matter

  • Despite standardised approaches to management of common conditions there are major differences in way the care is delivered both nationally & locally

  • Current way services are utilised is based on the way they are structured & provided

  • Limited effectiveness due to fragmented planning & organisation and opportunity for improvement exists at every stage of the continuum

Changing models of care

Changing models of care

Moving to care models that shift expenditure / activity away from hospital care, deploying resources more effectively to improve health outcomes and patient experience.

Ref: Dr Helen Bevan, NHS Institute

Patients with complex needs integration a report from the nhs future forum

Patients with Complex Needs(Integration: A Report from the NHS Future Forum)

  • Intensive users of services, repeatedly crossing traditional organisational and sector boundaries.

  • Gaps, duplications or poor reliability of care multiplied as their journeys progress

  • More difficulty in understanding their or understanding their often tortuous care journeys making it more difficult to exercise choice or control, or manage their own care

  • Needs may include education, social care, housing & justice

Patients with complex needs integration a report from the nhs future forum1

Patients with Complex Needs(Integration: A Report from the NHS Future Forum)

  • Groups most likely to benefit from integrated care include

    • Children and adults with complex needs

    • People with enduring mental heath problems

    • Homeless people

    • Frail older people and their carers

    • People at the end of their lives receiving palliative care

Integration networks pathways addiction mental health district group

Expectations for patients with complex or long-term needs (Integration: A Report from the NHS Future Forum)

  • To receive care as close to home as possible

  • To be informed about the options available to them

  • The opportunity to discuss their options with a professional skilled in shared decision making

  • Easy access to a named care coordinator who knows them and is able to provide a tailored level of support to navigate their care journey and make choices at appropriate junctures

  • To know what to expect at each step of planned care journeys

Integration networks pathways addiction mental health district group

Expectations for patients with complex or long-term needs (Integration: A Report from the NHS Future Forum)

  • To have an integrated care plan and where appropriate be offered an integrated budget

  • Every provider involved in the individual’s care to have access to their care record

  • Transitions between professionals, teams and organisations to be safe, smooth and efficient

  • To understand clearly and simply what care and support they are eligible for and how they might pay for it if they are not eligible for state funding

  • To be confident that appropriate information, training and support are available for carers

Definition of integration

Definition of Integration

“the act of making a whole out of parts, the coordination of different activities to ensure harmonious functioning”

Clinical integration

Clinical Integration

  • Many approaches with different terminology: shared care, transmural care, intermediate care, seamless care, disease management, case management, continuous care, integrated care pathways, integrated delivery networks

  • Patient centric view and needs of complex patients with chronic illness are considered

  • Scope varies but requires some form of seamless care or multiprofessional approach that values the role of all health professionals

  • Aim to improve coordination and integration of services



  • Types of integration (e.g., organisational, professional, clinical, functional)

  • Breadth of integration (e.g., vertical, hori- zontal, virtual)

  • Degree of integration (i.e., across the continuum: linkage, co-ordination to full integration)

  • Processes of integration (i.e., cultural and social as well as structural and systemic)

Clinical integration1

Clinical Integration

  • Different models of care: consultative, collaborative, coordinated, multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, integrative

  • A continuum from informal to formal arrangements with an increasing intensity of governance in the relationship between the providers

  • More fully integrated systems coordinate more information, activities and resources and consolidate organisational structures

  • Unlikely one model appropriate for all organisations or situations

Principles of clinical integration valentijn pp int j integr care 2013

Principles of Clinical Integration (Valentijn PP. Int J Integr Care 2013)

  • Coordination of person focused care in a single process across time, place and discipline

  • Requires a person-focused perspective to improve someone’s overall well-being and not focus solely on a particular condition

  • Patient as a co-creator in the care process; with shared responsibility between the professional and the person to find a common ground on clinical management

  • Emphasis should be placed on a person’s needs, with people coordinating their own care whenever possible

Requirements for change in healthcare

Requirements For Change In Healthcare

  • The essential requirements for success are:

  • Broad-based clinical leadership

  • District-wide service planning & organisation

  • Avoiding the fragmentation induced by existing service structures

    • (Bate P, Mendel P, Robert G: Organizing for Quality. Oxford: Radcliffe Publishing; 2008)

Network: an interconnected group or system

Clinical Network: is a social-professional structure made up of doctors, nurses and allied health staff tied through inter-dependencies such as collegiality, friendship, referrals, function or common interest

Two types of networks

Two Types Of Networks

• Type A: purpose-designed, funded or imposed by authority, in structured organisational or institutional forms [designed, mandated networks]

• Type B: those composed of the relationships amongst clinicians, via professional interests, referrals, supports, friendships, communications & advice [natural networks]

Natural networks

Natural Networks

  • For every health care problem there are hubs and clusters made up of clinicians & others with a special interest & expertise in that area

  • Form a self selected group with a natural interest to identify and solve ‘coal face’ clinical problems in voluntary collaboration with others

  • Clinicians with common concerns & complementary expertise voluntarily grouped
