U.K. Integrated Care Pilot Program Produces Improvements

A two-year study looking at practice sites involved in the Integrated Care Pilot Programme in the U.K. found improvements in care processes and staff satisfaction, as well as hospital use reductions. The study, which was commissioned by the Department of Health, looked at sites piloting different ways of integrating care among general practitioners, community nurses, hospitals, and social services. Overall, 54 percent of the staff interviewed at the sites thought that patient care had improved under the pilot program, and there was a 9 percent savings in the cost of hospital care.
