Taking care of integrated care: integration and fragmentation in the development of integrated care arrangements

Abstract

The aim of this thesis was to study the development of integrated delivery systems (IDSs). An IDS is a form of institutionalised partnership between organisations and health care professionals, aimed at facilitating cooperation at the levels of management, support services and the primary processes. The purpose of developing an IDS is to achieve control, quality and efficiency in health care delivery. To examine the extent to which IDSs enable integration, this study centred on the question ‘‘how do IDSs develop at the level of management, support services and integrated pathways for elderly and stroke?’’.
