We know that health and care systems across the world are facing a series of common challenges – an ageing population, increasing numbers of people living with Long Term Conditions, wide variations in care quality and escalating costs of drugs and advances in technology – that are driving increasing costs. Post pandemic these challenges are even more urgent.
At Caja we believe that Integrated Care at a system level holds the potential to address these challenges but that means working in a different way. Planning and acting across health and care with a focus on population health needs, value driven care models built on partnership working between organisations, taking the benefits of at scale delivery in specialist care and support services and forging new working relationships across the NHS and Local Authorities.
Caja is working to make this a reality. We are supporting the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Cancer Alliance to use behavioural science to improve the uptake of cancer screening across the ICS (804,000 female population). In Gloucestershire we are implementing integrated Intermediate Care pathways with the Council and NHS (634,000 population).
