Pioneers seeking to establish new models of care are likely to require the development of different organisational forms requiring new governance, financial flows and risk sharing arrangements between existing organisations.
There are no existing, off the shelf solutions meeting the needs of these new organisational forms.
The Pioneer programmes is:
- Working with advanced sites to develop what a successful joint venture between an acute and primary care provider(s) would look like in practice.
- Working with advanced sites to provide an economic model that illustrates the impact of new models on a local health economy.
- Providing similar support to advanced sites to generate lessons learned and toolkits which can be disseminated to others.
- Developing a range standard templates which can be adopted/adapted in other parts of the country avoiding significant fees.
