The Department of Health’s ‘Integrated Care and Support: Our Shared Commitment’ initiative aims to see health and social care fully joined-up by 2018. This is a crucial opportunity for healthcare development, with resources such as the £5bn Better Care Fund, and £260m Safer Hospitals, Safer Wards Technology Fund driving the improved integration of health and social care services across England.

This website is a resource for a broad range of individuals and organisations involved in commissioning, service design, and delivery. This site analyses integration case studies from across the country, highlighting the Quality Standards for commissioning, and identifying key innovations in integration.

Technology enabled care services (TECS), for instance, has an important role to play in facilitating better integration and more cohesive service delivery across traditional social care, health and housing boundaries. As such, this site serves as an important facility for Health and Wellbeing Boards, Clinical Commissioners, Directors of Social Services, housing providers and patient advocacy groups looking to understand how to best achieve integration in health and social care.

The overriding objective of integration:
“I can plan my care with people who work together to understand me and my carer(s), allow me control, and bring together services to achieve the outcomes important to me.”
