Growing innovative models of health, care and support for adults

This briefing explains that innovative, often small-scale models of health, social care and support for adults could be scaled up to benefit as many people as possible | Social Care Institute for Excellence

Based on research conducted during the spring of 2017, this briefing from the Social Care Institute for Excellence offers the following key messages:

  • Innovation is needed more than ever as challenges grow. Innovation does not only mean technological breakthroughs or large restructures. New and better ways of delivering relationship-based care are needed, and already exist, but are inconsistently implemented or poorly scaled.

 

  • For innovation to flourish,  better ways to help people bring good ideas from the margins into core business need to be found . The keys to success are:
    • a shared ambition to embed person- and community-centred ways of working across the system, using the best available tools and evidence
    • co-production: planning with the people who have the greatest stake in our services from the beginning
    • a new model of leadership which is collaborative and convening
    • investment and commissioning approaches which transfer resources from low quality, low outcomes into approaches which work effectively
    • effective outcomes monitoring and use of data to drive change
    • a willingness to learn from experience.

The report also has a series of recommendations for Local and National Government.
