We are very pleased to announce that EBPHA have been invited to speak at the 22nd International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC22), taking place from 22 – 25 May in Odense, Denmark.
Our Integrated Care philosophy and model has been recognized for reducing health inequalities through personalised and person-centred healthcare, delivered in a culturally, ethical framework.
It follows on from winning the NZ Primary Healthcare “Primary and Secondary Integration” award in 2021 and international recognition by the International Foundation for Integrated Care in 2018. The Integrated Case Management service was founded in 2015.
EBPHA’s Integrated Case (ICM) service are leaders in primary care service delivery impacting equity, connecting culturally and clinically. It is a navigation and coordination service, who help people with long-term conditions or complex health needs navigate their way through the health and social services system.
The service has been developed to ensure closer integration with the client’s general practice. It starts with an Integrated Care Plan, developed with the client, their whānau, and their GP. The Care Plan is ‘client-centered’ and documents the steps that need to be taken to achieve the agreed healthcare outcomes.
