Interrupted time series analyses on the effect on integrated care among the older population

Current health and social care systems in most European countries, are highly fragmented into specialist services, and poorly designed to provide health and social care for patients with multiple health problems and social needs. As some groups of patients might have greater difficulties navigating in a fragmented and divided system than others, current system also risks increasing inequalities in access and use of health and social care services. The aim of this study is to investigate if a comprehensive integrated care system perform better than ‘standard care’ in regards to emergency department visits, hospitalization for ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC), costs and re-admissions as well as increase equity in health care among older people.
