Meeting Outcomes Summary

Key Action Points

Put the patient at the heart of the process:

  • Inform patients - mail them the information with an explanation, then book an appointment two weeks later so that when they come in, they are equipped to collaborate in their own care
  • Create a space where patients can record their personal health plans/goals so that they can discuss these with their doctor
  • Publish data to provide comparative benchmarking between regions/hospitals which will

          o force hospitals to compete for the best reputation

          o allow patients to make an informed choice about which provider
 Facilitate information exchange:

  • Providers should only be reimbursed when they provide the patient information in a usable format to support joined up care
  • Develop common standards for interoperability and information sharing IT systems at a basic level
