System or Commissioner Led Redesign Initiative

System or Commissioner Led Service Redesign Initiative

consultancy_partnership_of_the_year_0.jpgThe drive toward integrated health and care systems is leading to some innovative approaches to care provision in the places and at the times when patients need it. These changes can be initiated by any part of the system from specialised services to primary care. Commissioners of service are playing a vital role as the way services are received evolves. They can often be leading a system approach to integrating services.
