The IFIC Podcast

The International Foundation for Integrated Care has defined nine pillars of integrated care based on the evidence accumulated over the last 2 decades. One of those pillars is Aligned Payments that Promote Integration. This is a difficult subject to understand particularly for policymakers, service managers and health and care professionals working in systems trying to implement integrated care who are not financing and payment experts. This short podcast series features our Chief Executive Dr Niamh Lennox-Chhugani in conversation with four leading practitioners who have been researching and designing new payment models around the world. They demystify the language of payment models and the different models we see emerging in different countries.
