The jargon of ‘integrated care’ is much-used in health policy and management circles. But why does ‘integrated care’ matter? And what will it mean for patients?
This short animation, by the King’s fund, aims to bring integrated care to life for anyone involved in improving patient care. If those working towards integrated care can share this vision with others in their local health and care system, then there is a real chance they can make integrated care happen.
Although the example in the animation is an elderly person, the same principles obviously apply to disabled and younger people with similar issues.
