Leading for integrated care | The King's Fund | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

This report explores the progress, challenges and opportunities the move towards greater integration presents, through interviews with 16 people leading or chairing an integrated care system or sustainability and transformation partnership


These leaders are clear about the skills needed to create an ICS, but issues around governance, accountability, whether legislation is needed and the pipeline of future system leaders remain. System leaders also have concerns about future relations with ‘the centre’ and the regulators, the pace of change and on how far a collaborative and voluntary approach can be the key to success.

State of the Nation 2019 | NZ Drug Foundation - At the heart of the matter

State of the Nation 2019 | NZ Drug Foundation - At the heart of the matter | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

This is the second edition of our annual report on how New Zealand is dealing with alcohol and other drugs. State of the Nation 2019 cover It shows that while kiwis of all ages, ethnicities and regions continue use illicit drugs despite the law, ethnicity and region play a significant role in whether or not they are penalised.


Figures collected from a variety of public sources and OIA requests tell us that more than 70 deaths have been linked with synthetic cannabinoids since mid-2017. However, alcohol is still the most harmful drug in New Zealand. Methamphetamine use is an ongoing issue, and Māori continue to suffer disproportionately from the harms caused by alcohol and other drugs.

The Heavy Burden of Obesity: The Economics of Prevention | OECD iLibrary

The Heavy Burden of Obesity: The Economics of Prevention | OECD iLibrary | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

Almost one in four people in OECD countries is currently obese. This epidemic has far-reaching consequences for individuals, society and the economy. Using microsimulation modelling, this book analyses the burden of obesity and overweight in 52 countries (including OECD, European Union and G20 countries), showing how overweight reduces life expectancy, increases healthcare costs, decreases workers' productivity and lowers GDP. The report makes the urgent economic case to scale up investments in policies to promote healthy lifestyles and tackle this growing global public health problem. The book evaluates a number of policies which could significantly improve health outcomes while being an excellent investment for countries.

The Association Between Health Information Technology & Patient Provider Contact | The Beryl Institute

The Association Between Health Information Technology & Patient Provider Contact | The Beryl Institute | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it

Health information technology (HIT) has been heralded as the savior of U.S. healthcare, offering a chance to limit soaring costs, improve patient outcomes, connect providers to foster patient-centered care, and actively engage patients in their own healthcare. Indeed, these systems—especially those devoted to electronic medical records—are arguably the only proposed bipartisan solution to our healthcare struggles, and as such, they have been enthusiastically embraced by facilities.


This paper proposes that the introduction of HIT into patient rooms and the insertion of HIT platforms into the provider-patient relationship may negatively affect interactions between patients and medical staff.

Ethical care: A bold reform agenda for adult social care | IPPR

Ethical care: A bold reform agenda for adult social care | IPPR | CM Health Library: National and International Reports | Scoop.it


With the possibility of a long-term funding settlement for social care, there is an urgent need for a bold reform agenda. For two decades, politicians have promised a long-term funding settlement for social care but failed to deliver on this. As a result, the policy conversation has been unable to move beyond the need for more funding. But we are now moving closer towards a solution, with a growing cross-party consensus behind the idea of introducing free personal care as recommended by IPPR’s Lord Darzi Review. If this happens, social care will need a bold vision and reform plan to ensure this investment fundamentally transforms the care.
