Integrated Health Services: Moving Beyond Agreement Toward Measurement and Action
RTI International is hosting a panel discussion on building effective integrated health services to achieve better health outcomes.When: Friday, March 17, 2017 8:30–9:00 a.m. — Breakfast and Networking 9:00–11:00 a.m. — Main Program Where: RTI International's DC Office 701 13th Street NW, Suite 750 Washington, DC 20005
Above is a recording of the panel discussion.
With the adoption of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3 and the global drive to achieve Universal Health Coverage, the integration of health services is the subject of renewed interest. It is largely agreed that integrated service delivery not only helps to enhance the efficiency and quality of health services, but also improves the health and well-being of health care users.
This panel will explore how we can further build the evidence base for integration, in order to concretely demonstrate its value and also learn lessons to continually improve efforts. Panelists will also explore key perspectives that take us beyond agreement and toward action on areas that are critical for successful integration in a variety of contexts: people-centered approaches, governance, public-private collaboration, health information, and financing.
We hope you will join us for what promises to be an informative and thought-provoking exchange.
