D4: Improving flow in the care continuum

Friday 20th September 2019

Part A: Integrated Care Initiatives – The Disease-specific Care Certification in Taiwan

In recent years, the challenge of an aging population and multiple associated comorbidities has become a global issue. In the past, healthcare services have typically been fragmented but continuous healthcare is crucial for patients and integrated care initiatives are urgently needed. Factors such as the payment system of health insurance and health care systems can influence a continuous healthcare service. In this presentation, you will discover how a disease-specific care certification can encourage integrated care initiatives and promote teamwork.
After this session, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the current execution status of integrated healthcare
2. Understand how disease specific certification can be used to promote integrated healthcare services
3. Understand the benefit for organisations who participate
