Integrated care systems are made up of three major pillars of work: Primary care networks, Personalised care and Population health management. Together, these three Ps form a core offer for local people which ensures care is tailored to their personal needs and delivered as close to home as possible.
Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. They are central to the delivery of integrated care and at the heart of all successful integrated care systems.
Personalised care gives people the same choice and control over their mental and physical health they have come to expect in every other aspect of their life. It is a key part of integrated care systems as health and social care partners work together to deliver more person-centred care to help people manage their own health and wellbeing.
Population Health is an approach that aims to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across an entire population. Population Health Management is an emerging technique for local health and care partnerships to use data to design new models of proactive care and deliver improvements in health and wellbeing which make best use of the collective resources.
