Primary care improvement case study: The Fono ‘Happy Skin’ project: Skin and soft tissue infections in the Tuvaluan community | HQSC

The population of Pacific peoples in New Zealand has a much higher rate of skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) than the rest of the New Zealand population. Among Pacific peoples, the Tuvaluan community has the highest rate of SSTI, indicating a large equity gap that needs to be addressed. The Fono initiated a quality improvement project that used a community-based public health approach with the aim of reducing the rate of SSTI by 25 percent by November 2018 in the West Auckland Tuvaluan community. Here’s what they did.

Strategic health authorities and regions: lessons from history | Nuffield Trust

Strategic health authorities and regions: lessons from history | Nuffield Trust | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it


With NHS England and NHS Improvement now a single entity, having seven regional teams to carry out work on the ground, what can be learned from previous incarnations of the NHS that relied on regional bodies? A new report by Nigel Edwards and Helen Buckingham asks the people who were there to provide some much-needed lessons from recent history to apply to the present day.


The interviews reveal that there are important prerequisites for successful regional management of this kind, including:

Clarity and consistency of purpose

Understanding the local and historical context

A good social and cultural 'fit' between the leader and their area of influence


The regional 'tier' has had an important and often helpful role in making the NHS more manageable and in translating policy ideas into action. But getting this role right is not easy and also requires frequent adjustment in style and approach – and probably less frequent changes of structures and people.


In the midst of a pandemic, it is also noteworthy that, looking back, regions and strategic health authorities had a key role in emergency planning and took this very seriously, employing expert staff and conducting local exercises. The larger size of the 10 SHAs gave them more ability to coordinate across providers – but as with other aspects of this experience, there is a trade-off between the increased scale and capabilities that came from this and a loss of understanding of local geography, capabilities and other contextual factors resulting from authorities' wider scope and coverage.

Culture as a cure: Assessments of patient safety culture in OECD countries | OECD

While health care quality has been improving on average in OECD members countries, patient safety remains a central priority for policy makers and health care leaders. A growing research body has found that PSC is associated with numerous positive outcomes, including improved health outcomes, improved patient experience, and organisational productivity and staff satisfaction. Tools to measure PSC have proliferated in recent decades and are now in wide-spread use.

This report includes findings from OECD countries on the state of the art for measurement practices related to PSC. Overall, measurement of PSC is prevalent across OECD countries, though the application, purpose, and tools vary. International learning and benchmarking has significant potential for better understanding and improvement of patient safety and health care quality.

The innovation lottery: Upgrading the spread of innovation in the NHS | IPPR

The innovation lottery: Upgrading the spread of innovation in the NHS | IPPR | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

The UK has always been a leader in medical invention - the challenge is to spread that innovation quickly and consistently.


New analysis, presented in this report, shows that if we were to match the performance of our international peers we could save an estimated 20,000 avoidable deaths each year.


IPPR’s research with people working in the system showed three thematic barriers experienced by the frontline, which should be immediate priorities.


A risk-averse culture, driven by the approach to performance management and focus on short-term targets. The sheer complexity of the NHS, coupled with a lack of networks, creating a ‘not invented here’ culture. A lack of resource, including a lack of financial support.


Policy change should come in two phases. First, the centre must set the rules of the game in the long term – by making minimum standards, accountability, roles and regulations clear. Second, there must be much more active support for local providers and commissioners.

Coronavirus and the economic value of human life or ... Is the lockdown worth it? | Institute of Economic Affairs

This briefing examines the ongoing argument about easing or ending the lockdown restrictions and considers numerous factors that will affect government decisions. It emphasises the importance of putting a monetary value on life as a tool to make cost-benefit analyses about the effectiveness of lockdown and makes clear that while people may feel squeamish about looking at human life in financial terms, such calculations are necessary to make the most of limited resources in the fairest and most effective way.

Future of Human Experience 2030 - The Beryl Institute - Improving the Patient Experience

Future of Human Experience 2030 - The Beryl Institute - Improving the Patient Experience | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it
The Beryl Institute, a US-based group focused on patient experience, has produced this report suggesting their vision of patient-centred care. Based on a process of drawing together ‘the insights of a global community of patients, family members and care partners’ the report looks to a health landscape that is integrated and systemic.

The report calls for a number of fundamental actions, including:

• Reframing consumerism to patient and consumer partnership.
• Providing a precision experience through the use of real-time data and decision analytics
• Addressing process burdens and workload issues for healthcare workers to increase opportunities for human connection, reinforce purpose and reduce burnout
• Transforming professional models for a new healthcare workforce
• Expanding beyond treating illness to addressing the health and well-being of communities
• Meeting people where they are, where they need it and follow them where they go, including at home, in their communities, and virtually.

Waiting Times for Health Services: Next in Line OECD

Waiting Times for Health Services: Next in Line OECD | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

Long waiting times for health services is an important policy issue in most OECD countries. Reducing the time that people have to wait to get a consultation with a general practitioner, or a diagnostic test or treatment, can go a long way in improving patient experience and avoiding possible deterioration in their health. Governments in many countries have taken various measures to reduce waiting times, often supported by additional funding, with mixed success.


This report looks at how waiting times for elective treatment, which is usually the longest wait, have stalled over the past decade in many countries, and have started to rise again in some others. It also analyses the differences in how long people have to wait to get a consultation with general practitioners or specialists across countries. The report reviews a range of policies that countries have used to tackle waiting times for different services, including elective surgery and primary care consultations, but also cancer care and mental health services, with a focus on identifying the most successful ones.

Realising the Potential of Primary Health Care | OECD

Realising the Potential of Primary Health Care | OECD | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

The rapid spread of COVID-19 added urgency to the need to address long-standing pressures on health systems, linked to growing citizens’ expectations, population ageing and more complex and costly health care needs. As the first point of contact, primary health care that provides comprehensive, continuous, and co-ordinated care is key to boosting preventive care, treating those who need care, and helping people become more active in managing their own health. It has the potential to improve health system efficiency and health outcomes for people across socio-economic levels, and make health systems people-centred.


This report examines primary health care across OECD countries before the COVID-19 pandemic, and draws attention to how primary health care is not living up to its full potential. Doing things differently – through new models of organising services, better co-ordination among providers, better use of digital technology, and better use of resources and incentives – helps to improve care, reduce the need for hospitalisations, and mitigate health inequalities.


This report identifies key policy challenges that OECD countries need to address to realise the full potential of primary health care, and reviews progress and innovations towards transforming primary health care.

Realising the True Value of Integrated Care: Beyond COVID-19 -  » | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it
These are unprecedented times for which there is no clear guidance or best practice to follow. At IFIC, we are not experts in the management of COVID-19. We are, however, an international (not for profit) collective of over 20,000 members spanning health and care services, academia, policy, management and implementation. To help us harness the disruptive innovation now being unleashed, share the rich and varied experiences and insights of our global community and to enable us all to ask questions and identify potential solutions, we propose to use the following ‘building blocks’ for integrated care as our compass. Over the years IFIC has developed and used a series of building blocks as a conceptual framework that supports the successful delivery of integrated care services. These have been refined through our most recent experiences and we believe they will help steer us towards a radically different reality where we achieve a stronger and more resilient society.
