STPs - How information sharing can turbocharge system working
A new report by Public Policy Projects supported by Capita.
The NHS plan for the next two years – published in March as Next Steps on the NHS Five Year Forward View – puts integration at the centre of the health service’s priorities. It describes Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) as the vehicle for the biggest national move to integrate care in any major Western country.
The aims of this approach are to drive up quality, cut costs, provide seamless care and keep people living healthier and independently for longer. For both individual patients and populations, information and data are the lifeblood of this approach.
We partnered with Public Policy Projects to bring together senior figures from the NHS and Local Government to one of the biggest challenges facing STPs – how to put information sharing at the heart of their work.
