About this event
The integrated care series showcases initiatives undertaken by finance teams across the NHS to advance population health and wellbeing through system working and innovative solutions. This year marks a departure from the traditional one-day virtual format of the integrated care summit; instead, we transformed it into a week-long series of morning webinars.
The sessions share best practices and highlight collaborative partnerships that focus on:
- population health management
- system finance
- environmental sustainability
- health inequalities
- social investment.
HFMA health inequalities award winners – Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust
Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust has successfully prioritised health inequalities by employing a multidisciplinary approach and engaging with local system and community partners. The finance team, which were a key driver of the prioritisation, were named winners of the HFMA’s Addressing Health Inequalities through NHS Finance Action Award.
Simon and Graham discuss how members of the team immersed themselves in the subject and supported initiatives by shifting and targeting resources at those most at risk, and sourcing funding to invest in the wider determinants of health.
Prioritising environmental sustainability within integration
Shona looks at how we can embed environmental sustainability at the core of system strategy, focusing on her work as part of the South East England environmental sustainability group, looking at how we can not only work across systems but also at a regional level. She touches upon the common challenges and barriers faced when working collaboratively across the region, and how the finance community are pivotal in driving forward best practice across the NHS.
Population health management applied to service change
Nigel, Sharon and Priya delve into the population health management initiatives underway within the Frimley area, illustrating how these efforts directly impact service changes across the system. The process entails a collaborative effort between clinicians and finance team members working closely together. They highlight instances of successful service changes and share insights gained from lessons learned during the process.
HFMA finance team of the year award winner – Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care System
Hear Nicci Briggs, chief finance officer, NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care Board, discuss how the finance teams within the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough system worked together to successfully exit special measures, achieve a breakeven in 2021/22 and 2022/23 and deliver a breakeven plan for 2023/24. The collaborative and transparent system approach enabled the sharing of surpluses, timely finance information, and the development of reports to assess the financial position of the entire system and individual providers.
Exploring the opportunities of social investment
Lucy and Fleur provide an overview of social investment, including examples of the successful work carried out by Social Finance, such as the MacMillian End of Life Care Fund, and the Care and Well Being Fund for dementia care. They outline the future direction of social investment and invite the audience to discuss the barriers and further opportunities.
This half-day online forum, will bring together the finance functions from across the four nations.
