Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis of Integrated Care Webinar – SELFIE Project

Professionals are increasingly keen to assess the effects of integrated care initiatives and payers and policy makers are keen to ensure that they allocate scarce resources only to services that have proven value for money.

This is possible with Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA).

The urgent care system is at breaking point. NHS figures from the winter of 2017-2018 were the worst on record with January 2018 marking the 30th month in a row that the four-hour target has been missed.
