Why should you read this paper?
Hospitals worldwide are wrestling with the issue of access to care. Decentralization of health systems is at the heart of a £2.3 billion initiative in England seeking to increase the amount of diagnostic capacity and activity across the country. The idea is to open 165 Community Diagnostic Centres (CDCs) within a few years, which will be key aspects of reform efforts to improve efficiency, quality, and patient outcomes.
Key takeaways from the paper
CDCs will be...
- A connected yet decentralized network of healthcare centres
- Potentially able to mitigate growing backlogs and long patient wait times
- Unique and influenced by different integrated care systems and local patient pathway requirements
- Able to ensure better population health outcomes, improve the patient experience, reduce health inequalities
- Making care more available, affordable and accepted by the population being served
