What is the evidence on the economic impacts of integrated care? by Ellen Nolte and Emma Pitchforth (2014)
European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies / World Health Organization - Poliy Summary n° 11

This Policy Summary analyses published reviews on the economic impacts of integrated care approaches. Given the wide range of definitions and interpretations of the concept, it proposes a working definition that builds on the goal of integrated care and which considers initiatives seeking to improve outcomes for those with (complex) chronic health problems and needs by overcoming issues of fragmentation through linkage or coordination of services of different providers along the continuum of care. The review covers three economic outcomes: utilisation, cost–effectiveness and cost or expenditure and also looks at data on core health outcomes such as health status, quality of life or mortality, as well as process measures.
