Andrew Lansley advocates ‘Accountable Care Organisations’ in NHS

As reported in the Health Service Journal today (16 November 2011 – click here) the Secretary of State for Health, Andrew Lansley, has “…….advocated the model of accountable care organisations, most commonly, although not exclusively, associated with the US healthcare sector. These are networks of providers which are given a pooled budget for patients’ care and are monitored on their performance and quality.

Mr Lansley said accountable care organisations could be beneficial “in so far as they bring hospital and community services together, in order to create an organisational form that is more integrated”.

But he added: “They have to do it in a way that doesn’t create monopolistic services that don’t offer patients choice.”
