Integrated ambulatory care in the New Zealand health system: a scoping review

Integrated health systems, according to the World Health Organization (2017) are ''the organization and management of health services so that people get the care they need, when they need it, in ways that are user-friendly, achieve the desired results and provide value for money.'' This is a very important concept in today's day and age, as access to healthcare has become a challenge and the population has never been sicker.

In New Zealand and internationally, emerging trends across health systems include a fundamental shift of care from hospitals to community-based settings and increased integration of services to better link traditional community, primary and secondary/specialist. 

The aim of this review is to identify and describe New Zealand (NZ) and international countries evidence of integrated ambulatory care models and describes key implementation issues and lessons learned.

Defining Coordinated Care for People with Rare Conditions: A Scoping Review

To coordinate care effectively for rare conditions, we need to understand what coordinated care means. This review aimed to define coordinated care and identify components of coordinated care within the context of rare diseases; by drawing on evidence from chronic conditions. Coordinated care is multi-faceted and has both generic and context-specific components. Findings can help to develop and eventually test different ways of coordinating care for people with rare and common chronic conditions.

Addressing safety risks in integrated care programs for older people living at home: a scoping review

Many older people live at home, often with complex and chronic health and social care needs. Integrated care programs are increasingly being implemented as a way to better address these needs. To support older people living at home, it is also essential to maintain their safety. Integrated care programs have the potential to address a wide range of risks and problems that could undermine older people’s ability to live independently at home. The aim of this scoping review is to provide insight into how integrated care programs address safety risks faced by older people living at home - an area that is rather underexplored.

Mapping Evidence of Patients’ Experiences in Integrated Care Settings: A Protocol for a Scoping Review

Integrated care (IC) models have emerged to address gaps in care for individuals with complex healthcare needs. Although the clinical and cost-effectiveness of IC models are well-established, the understanding of whether IC models facilitate a patient-centred care experience from the patients’ perspective is not well understood. This scoping review aims to comprehensively map the literature to provide a broad overview of patients’ experiences in IC settings with a focus on the experiences of complex patients with comorbid mental and physical illnesses. It also aims to describe current gaps identified in the literature in our understanding of aspects of care that are often unrecognised.

Implementation of Off-Site Integrated Care for Children: A Scoping Review.

As an alternative to co-located integrated care, off-site integration (partnerships between primary care and non-embedded specialty mental health providers) can address the growing need for pediatric mental health services. The goal of this study was to review the existing literature on implementing off-site pediatric integrated care

Non-communicable diseases in sub-Saharan Africa: a scoping review of large cohort studies

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) cause a large and growing burden of morbidity and mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. Prospective cohort studies are key to study multiple risk factors and chronic diseases and are crucial to our understanding of the burden, aetiology and prognosis of NCDs in SSA. The aim of this study was to identify the level of research output on NCDs and their risk factors collected by cohorts in SSA.

The core components of Community Paramedicine – integrated care in primary care setting: a scoping review

Since the beginning of 2000, the primary healthcare services around the globe are challenged between demands of home care and number of staff delivering it. The delivery of healthcare needs new models to reduce the costs, patient's readmission and increase their possibilities to stay at home. Several paramedicine programmes have been developed to deliver home care as an integral part of the local healthcare system. The programmes varied in nature and the concept of Community Paramedicine (CP) has not been established, demanding clarity. The aim of this review was to identify and describe the core components of CP, and identify research gaps for the further study.

Measuring patient-centred system performance: a scoping review of patient-centred care quality indicators

Patient-centred care (PCC) is one of the six dimensions of healthcare and was formally described by the Institute of Medicine in 2001 as healthcare that respects and responds to the preferences, needs and values of the individual patients throughout all healthcare decisions. PCC is an approach that has become central to policies and programming to improve healthcare efficiencies and address patient safety issues.
In that sense, The shift to the patient-centred care (PCC) model as a healthcare delivery paradigm calls for systematic measurement and evaluation. In an attempt to develop patient-centred quality indicators (PC-QIs), this study aimed to identify quality indicators that can be used to measure PCC

Integrated Care Planning for Cancer Patients: A Scoping Review

There has been growing emphasis on the use of integrated care plans to deliver cancer care. However little is known about how integrated care plans for cancer patients are developed including featured core activities, facilitators for uptake and indicators for assessing impact. A scoping review was conducted to explore the components of integrated care plans and contextual factors that influence design and uptake.

A scoping review of mentorship of health personnel to improve the quality of health care in low and middle-income countries

Most Low and Middle-Income Countries are facing a crisis in human resources for health which compromises their ability to meet health related targets outline by the Sustainable Development Goals. The crisis is not limited to the availability of health personnel but also the quality of care and the training and development of the workforce. To address these challenges evidence based education strategies are urgently required.
