    Health at a Glance provides a comprehensive set of indicators on population health and health system performance across OECD members and key emerging economies. These cover health status, risk factors for health, access to and quality of healthcare, and health system resources. Analysis draws from the latest comparable official national statistics and other sources. Alongside indicator-by-indicator analysis, an overview chapter summarises the comparative performance of countries and major trends. This edition also has a special focus on digital health, which measures the digital readiness of OECD countries’ health systems, and outlines what countries need to do accelerate the digital health transformation.

    A new report from the Public Policy Projects (PPP) calls on integrated care systems (ICSs) to harness the unique capabilities of the pharmacy sector and implement a pharmacy-led transformation of healthcare delivery. The report, Driving true value from medicines and pharmacy, is chaired by Yousaf Ahmad, ICS Chief Pharmacist and Director of Medicines Optimisation at Frimley Health and Care Integrated Care System, and is the culmination of three roundtable events attended by key stakeholders from across the pharmacy sector and ICS leadership. Insight from these roundtables has also been accepted as evidence in the Health and Care Select Committee’s recent inquiry into the future of the pharmacy sector.

    Getting the president of the United States to consider enacting your policy proposals is a major achievement. Having him actually implement them is an accomplishment that can change lives. The patient safety movement reached that first milestone with a recent report by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology entitled, A Transformational Effort on Patient Safety. Whether advocates achieve the second, crucial goal remains very much an open question. The PCAST casts a wide net, examining everything from nanotechnology to the public health workforce. It appears until now to have addressed patient safety only tangentially, when in 2014 it was a small part of a larger report on accelerating health system improvement through systems engineering.  The good news for patient safety advocates is that President Joe Biden has shown a genuine understanding of the issue. Leah Binder, president of the Leapfrog Group, hailed the report in a statement that singled out two of the recommendations. The first one was to publicly report Never Events (medical errors that never should have happened) by individual facility. The second was a recommendation to establish a National Patient Safety Team. A major barrier standing between recommendation and implementation is the patient safety movement’s paltry political power. At present, patient safety has little public awareness and no grassroots constituency. Hospitals, on the other hand, are an integral part of almost every Congressional district, have a largely positive public image and are facing tough financial pressures. The White House will think long and hard about taking any actions hospitals see as unreasonable.

    Simulation for non-pedagogical purposes has begun to emerge. Examples include quality improvement initiatives, testing and evaluating of new interventions, the co-designing of new models of care, the exploration of human and organisational behaviour, comparing of different sectors and the identification of latent safety threats. However, the literature related to these types of simulation is scattered across different disciplines and has many different associated terms, thus making it difficult to advance the field in both recognition and understanding. This paper, therefore, aims to enhance and formalise this growing field by generating a clear set of terms and definitions through a concept taxonomy of the literature.

    Authors of this article argue that: "...navigating the pandemic asked a lot of employees - and while they delivered, it came at a cost. Relentless sprinting means many employees are running on fumes. To create more sustainable change efforts, leaders must prioritise change initiatives, showing employees where to invest their energies. They also must manage change fatigue by building in periods of proactive rest, involving employees in change plans, and challenging managers to help build team resilience."

    The government has published its mandate to NHS England. This mandate is intended to apply from 15 June 2023 until a new mandate is published. NHS England has a duty to seek to achieve the objectives in the mandate. The Secretary of State keeps progress against the mandate under review, setting out his views in an annual assessment which is laid in Parliament and published. The government will agree with NHS England how it should report on overall progress against the mandate to support the Secretary of State in keeping this under review. This will include reporting at agreed intervals on other delivery expectations listed beneath the objectives.

    Digital innovations bring many opportunities to transform healthcare services, and to improve people’s health and experiences of care. However, introducing and using technology has continued to prove difficult, and there is still a lot to achieve to deliver on the promise of digital transformation. This event will bring together leading innovators and delegates to network and collectively and creatively develop strategies that enable innovative practice. During this in-person event at The King’s Fund, experts will discuss current innovations – such as, virtual wards, shared care records, remote monitoring, and robotic process automation (RPA) – in the context of the wider health care landscape, and consider how to overcome the barriers people face to implementation.

    Breaking down the barriers between organisations is key to the successful development of integrated care systems (ICSs), and the underpinning digital transformation that their introduction demands. Digital transformation can become the foundation of partnership working across health, social care, local government, and wider partners – including those in the voluntary, community and social enterprise, and private sectors – as place-based approaches to delivering care develop. This session from The King's Fund will explore what is being done to create collaborative digital strategies at ICS level that enable practical and flexible ways of working between partners. It will discuss how best to harness and use the data the system already holds, and how partnerships can move beyond barriers around data sharing, co-ordination and workforce capacity. Register

    Is it time to change the way England's healthcare system is funded? Is the English system in need of radical structural change at the top? I've been prompted to think about this by the article about the German public health system on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-62986347.amp There are no quick fixes, however we all need to look at this closely. I believe that really 'modernising' / 'transforming' our health & #socialcare systems could 'save the #NHS'. Both for #patients through improved safety, efficiency & accountability, and by making the #NHS an attractive place to work again, providing the NHS Constitution for England is at the heart of changes and is kept up to date. In my experience, having worked in healthcare for the private sector and the NHS, and lived and worked in other countries, we need to open our eyes. At present it could be argued that we have the worst of both worlds in England. A partially privatised health system and a fully privatised social care system. All strung together by poor commissioning and artificial and toxic barriers, such as the need for continuing care assessments. In my view a change, for example to a German-style system, could improve patient safety through empowering the great managers and leaders we have in the NHS. These key people are held back by the current hierarchical crony-ridden system, and we are at risk of losing them. In England we have a system which all too often punishes those who speak out for patients and hides failings behind a web of denial, obfuscation and secrecy, and in doing this fails to learn. Vast swathes of unnecessary bureaucracy and duplication could be eliminated, gaps more easily identified, and greater focus given to deeply involving patients in the delivery of their own care. This is a contentious subject as people have such reverence for the NHS. I respect the values of the NHS and want to keep them; to do this effectively we need much more open discussion on how it is organised and funded. What are people's views?
