Developing a powerful disruptive innovator to create integrated and accountable programmes of care

There is broad agreement about the need to commission integrated care or as patients and their carers would be more likely to call it “joined up care”.

In this casebook, Paul Corrigan and Dr Steve Laitner explore and develop the idea that  commissioners could commission an Integrated and Accountable Programme of Care for a population of patients with particular needs. Such populations could be “the Frail Elderly” or “Children with Complex Disabilities” or “People with (and at risk of) Respiratory Disease”.

Commissioners could commission these programmes of care via an Accountable Lead Provider.
