Triple Aim is used as evaluation framework: improving the health of populations, patient experience of care and reducing the per capita cost of healthcare (Stiefel & Nolan, 2012). To make evaluation sustainable in the long term and limit registration workload, we will evaluate if relevant Triple Aim measures can be calculated based on claims data, which are already systematically collected...

Introduction: Frequent attenders to Emergency Departments (ED) often have contributing substance use disorders (SUD), but there are few evaluations of relevant interventions. We examine one such pilot assertive management service set in Sydney, Australia (IMPACT), aimed at reducing hospital presentations and costs, and improving client outcomes. Methods: IMPACT eligibility criteria included moderate-to-severe SUD and ED attendance on ≥5 occasions in the previous year. A pre-post intervention des...

Introduction: Providers, managers, health system leaders, and researchers could learn across countries implementing system-wide models of integrated care, but require accessible methods to do so. This study assesses if a common framework could describe and compare key components of international models of integrated care. Theory and methods: A framework developed for an international study of programs that address high needs high cost patients was used to describe and compare 11 case studies ana...
