What are the UK ICS's?
An ICS is an – Integrated Care Systems An ICS brings NHS providers, Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs), local authorities, and voluntary sector partners together to collaboratively plan and organize how health and care services are delivered in their area.
...
Main goals of ICS's

 

The purpose of ICSs is to bring partner organizations together to:

  • improve outcomes in population health and healthcare
  • tackle inequalities in outcomes, experience, and access
  • enhance productivity and value for money
  • help the NHS support broader social and economic development.

Collaborating as ICSs will help health and care organizations tackle complex challenges, including:

  • improving the health of children and young people
  • supporting people to stay well and independent
  • acting sooner to help those with preventable conditions
  • supporting those with long-term conditions or mental health issues
  • caring for those with multiple needs as populations age
  • getting the best from collective resources so people get care as quickly as possible.

GIANT's role

22-23 November 2023, London. This year’s central assembly of all ICS leaders and stakeholders. Network with and learn from the leaders of the UK’s new ICS's - Integrated Care Systems, and meet the experts who are leading the dramatic and profound changes and innovation in the UK health sector.

During the show, we will explore the obstacles, visions, and developments of integrated care systems, providing delegates with insights into how to move forward through a mixture of keynote addresses and best-practice case studies. It will provide an opportunity to understand the ICS strategy, consider government proposals, look at the connection of services, and uncover how this restructuring can deal with the COVID-19 backlog and overcome health inequalities.

 

GIANT exists to facilitate better procurement of tech, innovation in healthcare.

The National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom faces several challenges when it comes to procurement. Some of these include:

  1. Limited budgets: The NHS operates with tight budgets, which can limit the amount of money available for procurement.
  2. Complex regulations: The NHS is subject to a complex set of regulations, including EU procurement rules, which can make the procurement process more difficult.
  3. Lack of standardization: There is a lack of standardization in the procurement process across different NHS organizations, which can make it difficult for suppliers to understand the requirements of different organizations
  4. Limited supplier base: The NHS often relies on a limited number of suppliers, which can limit competition and increase prices.
  5. Long procurement cycles: The procurement process for the NHS can be slow, with long lead times for procurement and delivery of goods and services.
  6. Limited use of technology: The NHS has been slow to adopt modern procurement technologies, such as e-procurement systems, which can make the procurement process more efficient.
  7. Lack of transparency and accountability: The lack of transparency and accountability in the procurement process can make it difficult for stakeholders to understand how decisions are being made and who is responsible for them.
  8. Difficulty in measuring and evaluating performance: Measuring and evaluating the performance of suppliers is a challenge for the NHS, which can make it difficult to identify and address issues with suppliers.

...
How does the roll-out of ICSs affect suppliers wanting to sell to the NHS?

ICSs will impact how you go about selling your goods and services to the NHS, but not as drastically as you might believe.

Going forward, it's important to think in the structures used by the NHS: namely, the aforementioned 'level' system. You should understand where your services or products sit in the Neighbourhood, Place and Systems tiers: if you offer FM services to a Trust, or sell services to individual GP practices, then it's likely you will sit at the Neighbourhood or Place level, and there will not be a huge change. However, if your services cross those boundaries - say, if you provide sexual health services - then it is likely that these will be commissioned at the ICS level.

...

How the introduction of ICSs affects health commissioning is largely contingent on just how 'Integrated' the Care Systems are. If truly integrated, procurement may become easier and more streamlined, particularly for organisations that can offer connectivity across a region like ourselves.

If properly integrated, the role of ICSs as regional 'strategy setters' will be a key consideration if you're looking to do business with the NHS. While suppliers will still need to engage with local providers, as has always been the case traditionally, suppliers will also need to ensure their products/solutions meet the wider ICS strategy and needs.

You'll need to consider the impact of your service or product on the wider healthcare economy: if you can demonstrate that you are able to help commissioners develop integrated pathways, and understand that care doesn't start and stop at the front door of a particular institution, then you will be in a stronger position.

As such, while the roll-out of ICSs won't have too drastic an impact on how you sell your goods and services to the NHS, understanding the role of ICSs, the strategies they're implementing, and how they're cultivating a more interconnected healthcare system is key to writing a smarter bid. A good bid will reference ICSs sensibly, a great one will understand how the service you provide fits into the new paradigm, and provides a better service for patients as a result.

The UK healthcare ICS Congress - 2023, London. This year’s leading assembly of all ICS leaders and stakeholders.

ICSs are intended to bring about major changes in how health and care services are planned, paid for, and delivered, and are a key part of the future direction for the NHS as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.

The UK National ICS Congress is intending to serve as an enabler for ICSs to be a vehicle for achieving greater integration of health and care services; improving population health and reducing inequalities; supporting productivity and sustainability of services; and helping the NHS to support social and economic development.

ICSs are part of a fundamental shift in the way the health and care system is organised. ICSs depend on collaboration and a focus on places and local populations as the driving forces for improvement.
