Summary

Structural change is occurring in the English healthcare system as commissioners move towards an integrated healthcare system that combines community-based healthcare and social care under one commissioning and provision structure.

The challenge facing healthcare providers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors is how to reposition themselves to take advantage of the opportunities of integrated healthcare, how to mitigate the risks, and how to reconfigure their capabilities to deliver the scale and type of care needed.

In this Executive Insights, Jonathan Sparey, Ben Faircloth and Eilert Hinrichs examine the challenges of this opportunity, and explain why L.E.K. believes that the strategic rewards of early involvement over the next one-two years will justify the risks.
