Drop by ACT@Scale sessions at ICIC18

ACT@Scale attends the International Conference on Integrated Care 2018 when it takes place in Utrecht, Netherlands, on 23-25 May 2018. The conference brings together researchers, clinicians, and managers from around the world who are engaged in the design and delivery of integrated health and social care. The event is organised around different themes under which multiple ACT@Scale partners will contribute.

Firstly, several partners from ACT@Scale will hold presentations under the theme: Value-based integrated care, which focuses on, among other things, enhancing the value of care to people by restructuring and improving the health outcomes and care delivery across sectors.

Furthermore, we are highly visible in the Implementation Room sessions, which focus on drawing lessons from early and successful approaches to integrated care in Europe, and share these with the wider community of stakeholders who wish to embark on the implementation of integrated care. ACT@Scale will present in the sessions concerning the cross-cutting theme: How to design and implement integrated care in association with the European Commission.

Lastly, the partners from ACT@Scale contribute to the cross-cutting themes: policy making, regulation and inspection, and Population health management that concentrates on tackling inequalities and improving population health outcomes.
