The authors of this King’s Fund paper on integrated care summarise sixteen steps required to enable integrated care become a reality. This document cautions that there is no universal solution or approach to integrated care, and that there is no single best approach. Changes to national policy, and to regulatory and financial frameworks, may be needed for local leaders to be able to realise integration fully. Examples of good practice are given.
