It also provides an overview of people's views on the seven objectives of the Integration Standard: Digital interoperability, Resources targeted at high-risk cohort to prevent crises and maintain wellbeing, Value for Money, Single assessment and care plans, Integrated community care, Timely and safe discharges, and Social care embedded in urgent and emergency care. The results of the study confirms support for the ambition of integration by 2020, because bringing together health and social care is universally seen as the right thing to do. It concludes by providing a framework for action for further development of the Integrated Standard. Appendices include details of the case studies and the rapid evidence review.
