Health and social care – financial context for integration
Government funding for health and social care over the next decade is a key concern for commissioners, providers and service users. As financial and service pressures facing the NHS and local government intensify, the need for integrated care to improve people’s experience of health and care, the outcomes achieved and the efficient use of resources will only grow. On top of facing a predicted financial crisis in the NHS and local government as austerity 2.0 comes into effect, the sectors are facing significant increases in demand which could prove all but impossible to meet. What is the long view? And to what extent can a more integrated approach to managing health deal with this dilemma?

NHS Boards are accountable for using the finite resources available to deliver best value for their organisation and the local population, working collaboratively with other organisations, across the wider integrated care system. We analyse how the decision-making process can be adapted to enable good boards to become great boards and how they can balance competing demands and priorities. By the end of the interactive session, you will be more aware of how NHS boards manage their public accountability for the holistic performance of their organisation, and contribute to the wider health and care system, within a complex regulatory and financial framework.

The Webinar introduces you to health economics and how to apply the concepts to organisational decision-making, help shape the delivery of better health care and improve health outcomes in the NHS.
Health economics provides insights into how to improve healthcare and decide on the relative merits of alternative treatments and ways of providing healthcare within finite resources. Although you may not be directly involved in health economics-based decision-making, it is helpful to understand how the concepts relate to the planning of health services. We examine the problems and pitfalls which arise as you develop business cases to improve health outcomes and increase public value. By the end of the interactive session, you will be more aware of the complex issues you encounter as you start to widen your perspective and think a little more like a health economist.

How can NHS finance take an active role in supporting the use of digital healthcare to transform services and drive value and efficiency?
Digital technologies such as digital medicine, genomics, artificial intelligence and robotics have a huge potential to transform the delivery of healthcare.
These technologies can empower patients to participate actively in their care, with a greater focus on wellbeing and prevention. They also support the prediction of individual disease risk and personalise the management of long-term conditions.
Head of innovation Yinka Makinde will provide NHS finance staff with an introduction to some of these technologies and the opportunities they provide to reimagine how care is delivered.

Many finance and accounting processes are data heavy and highly repetitive which make them ideal candidates for automation. NHS organisations can benefit from automation which can optimise cash flow, reduce transactional costs and provide real-time, deep analytics, while enabling employees to focus on high value, strategic activities and providing advisory support.
