Insight 2022 – Day 7 – Smarter decision making for your ICS

29th November 2022, 14:00 – 15:45

Part of INSIGHT 2022

Smarter decision making for your ICS

Making the key decisions of what to resource to better meet the needs of your organisation and population is truly complex. How do you better understand the priorities of your clinicians and service providers and also the critical step of better understanding your population’s needs and views? Then how do you work with external partner organisations to prioritise, move resources and forge similar goals and measures of success?

In this session we heard from speakers that can help you improve your decision making on the critical question of resourcing, by sharing their approaches (all open source and free to use for the NHS), the hard lessons learnt and how they are now making decisions in an integrated way, that have the buy in from the population, clinicians and multiple organisations involved in delivering care.
