Making the shift from acute to an integrated care system (ICS) model would be a challenge by itself, but when paired with the elective recovery backlog and addressing health inequalities, the task is all the more significant.
In 2022, the Health and Social Care Act passed into law, codifying elements of the NHS Long Term Plan that will connect Trusts across England.1 This convergence will focus on population health, boost out-of-hospital care, reduce pressure on emergency departments, personalised care, and fully digitise primary and outpatient care.
ICSs play a key role in this digital transformation, linking all interested parties from councils to health and care providers. Cerner will continue to work alongside ICSs to ensure that each community they work with can benefit from the latest innovation to achieve improved outcomes.
The Cerner difference: Enabling operational, analytical, clinical and transformational support
The digital transformation of care pathways revolutionises models of care and the outcomes achieved. Cerner helps ICSs to streamline pathways, so the right health and care providers are giving optimal support to their patients and the wider community.
