Abstract

The Sláintecare Action Plan 2019 established the building blocks for a significant shift in the way in which health services are delivered in Ireland, seeking to deliver on the Future of Healthcare Committee’s vison of a health system in which care is provided in the right place, at the right time, by the right person. Budget 2019 provided €20 million for the establishment of a ring-fenced Sláintecare

Integration Fund to test and scale how services can best be delivered. The Fund received submissions with a focus on prevention, community care and integration of care across all health and social care settings.

This workshop organised in partnership with the Health Service Executive, Ireland (HSE) and IFIC Ireland will reflect on this innovative approach to testing and piloting new ways of working and new models of care that shifted care from the hospital to the community and focused on prevention. The session will look at how the integration fund was implemented, how it worked, what were the outcomes and, look ahead to what happens next.

The workshop will hear from projects which were mainstreamed and hear about the challenges and opportunities that were presented along the way. As the Sláintecare Integration Fund moves to the next phase this is an opportunity to share lessons learned, ask questions and find out how we can continue to drive innovation and provide world class services in the delivery of health and care across Ireland.
