    The workshops found five main risks to integration that appear to remain unresolved by current reforms. These are: Embedded culture and behaviours and inter-organisational power dynamics Organisational complexity, duplication, and overlapping focus Resource constraints Difficulties in defining, measuring and evaluating integration Integration fatigue. In response, this report offers some suggested approaches to mitigating those risks, which should be the focus of system leaders as partnerships take hold. These include: Ways of building integration into the day job Bringing clarity to the complexity of governance structures Better use of performance management, metrics and data Fostering culture change through greater mutual understanding Rebalancing capacity, including management capacity.

    Key recommendations The Delivering the future hospital report identifies six requirements that are key to improving patient care: Ensure patients and carers are at the centre of healthcare design and delivery. Provide local support for teams to improve patient care in a financially constrained and politically exposed healthcare system. Develop a collaborative learning structure to enable healthcare teams to successfully implement improvement projects. Collect and analyse data to support ongoing improvements to patient care. Develop future clinical leaders. Partnership working between the RCP and local teams is an effective model for improving aspects of patient care. The Future Hospital Programme has demonstrated that a patient-centred approach to improving services can help deliver better care for patients by more motivated, engaged staff.

    The collaboration seen between the independent sector and the NHS during the peaks of the pandemic “doesn’t exist any more”, the boss of one of the UK’s largest private hospital companies has said. Mr Justin Ash, chief executive of Spire Healthcare and a member of the government’s recently convened elective recovery task force, whose purpose is to ”focus on how the NHS can [better] utilise independent sector to cut the backlog’.” He told the Westminster Health Forum earlier this week: “In spirit there is collaboration but in practice, it doesn’t exist anymore. There is no more commissioning by trust[s]”. Mr Ash told the conference Spire had previously had administrative teams working at 39 different NHS hospitals examining which NHS patients could be treated at one of its facilities. That number was now three, a decline which he described as “a shame”. He said: “There has to be a mindset change. We have people say ‘you have our nurses and consultants working for you’. “[But] just like patients, nurses and consultants should be able to move around the system [as] one workforce.” Read full story (paywalled) Source: HSJ, 16 December 2022

    The Learn Together project engaged with, and learnt from, the experiences of everyone involved in investigations – patients, families, staff, investigators, policy makers, and other key stakeholders – to find out their needs during, and experiences of, the investigation process. Together, they have co-designed new guidance to make investigations more human and meaningful for those involved, and support better organisational learning. The project has created investigation resources to support you if you are involved in a Patient Safety Incident Investigation either as a patient, family member, healthcare staff member or investigator, including: Patient safety incident investigation information booklets for patients/families and for staff Investigator guidance Investigation record . You can download the relevant co-designed guidance or support booklets from the link below, which contain helpful information to guide and support your involvement in an investigation.

    Nanette Barragán, US representative for California’s 44th Congressional District, has announced the introduction of new legislation intended to establish a National Patient Safety Board (NPSB) as a non-punitive, collaborative, independent agency to address safety in healthcare. This landmark legislation is a critical step to improve safety for patients and healthcare providers by coordinating existing efforts within a single independent agency solely focused on addressing safety in health care through data-driven solutions. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, medical error was the third leading cause of death in the United States, with conservative estimates of more than 250,000 patients dying annually from preventable medical harm and costs of more than $17 billion to the U.S. healthcare system. Recent data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that patient safety worsened during the pandemic. The NPSB’s solutions would focus on problems like medication errors, wrong-site surgeries, hospital-acquired infections, errors in pathology labs, and issues in transition from acute to long-term care. By leveraging interdisciplinary teams of researchers and new technology, including automated systems with AI algorithms, the NPSB’s solutions would help relieve the burden of data collection at the frontline, while also detecting precursors to harm. A coalition of leaders in health care, technology, business, academia, and other industries has united to call for the establishment of an NPSB. “We have seen many valiant efforts to reduce the problem of preventable medical error, but most of these have relied on the frontline workforce to do the work or take extraordinary precautions,” said Karen Wolk Feinstein, PhD, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative and spokesperson for the NPSB Advocacy Coalition. “The pandemic has now made things worse as weary, frustrated, and stressed nurses, doctors, and technicians leave clinical care, resulting in a cycle where harm becomes more prevalent. Many organizations have united to advance a national home for patient safety to promote substantive solutions, including those that deploy modern technologies to make safety as autonomous as possible.” Read full story Source: Business Wire, 8 December 2022

    What is the National Patient Safety Board? Since early 2021 there has been a growing coalition of healthcare organisations and groups calling to create the National Patient Safety Board in the United States.[1] This is a proposed federal agency with the goal of preventing and reducing patient safety events in healthcare settings, modelled after the National Transportation Board and the Commercial Aviation Safety Team.[2] Legislative proposal Nanette Barragán, US representative for California’s 44th Congressional District, has announced the introduction of new legislation intended to establish a National Patient Safety Board as a non-punitive, collaborative, independent agency to address safety in healthcare.[3] Its proposed duties are: Supporting Federal departments and agencies in monitoring and anticipating patient safety events with patient safety data surveillance technologies. Providing expertise to study the context and causes of patient safety events and solutions. Formulating recommendations and solutions to prevent patient safety events from occurring. In carrying out this role, the National Patient Safety Board would be required to submit annual reports to the United States Congress and would also be able to hold hearings, take testimony, receive evidence and issue reports as appropriate. It’s proposed to comprise: Five Board members, each nominated by the President, by and with the advice and consent for the US Senate, for a term of 6 years. A Chair and Vice Chair, designated by the President from among the members of the Board to serve a term of 3 years. It is also proposed that it establishes and maintains a public-private team, known as the Health Care Safety Team, to sit underneath this to review, update and prioritise patient safety event measures and data sources related to patient and provider safety in healthcare settings, including survey data, electronic health records data, claims data, health information exchange data and reports of patient safety events.[4] National Patient Safety Board campaign You can find out more details about the campaign to support the creation of a National Patient Safety Board, and if relevant how to contact your US House member’s office in regards to this, here.
