Procurement and Partnership for Patients - procurement in the new Integrated Care: a report from GGI in collaboration with Optima Health

07 June 2022

GGI and Optima Health have been in conversation with Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and other NHS leaders to gain their initial thoughts and provocation around procurement within the new integrated and collaborative care world and what the changes would mean for health care providers, with particular emphasis on the procurement of digital solutions to enhance musculoskeletal (MSK) care.

This paper provides insight for ICS board members, NHS and partner procurement leads on how procurement in ICSs can be embraced across public services in a smart and innovative way. It outlines how procurement and use of digital solutions can accelerate access to care. Based on new ICS partnerships which enable collaboration and learning across sectors, we focus on practical ways to deliver excellent procurement.

It also gives insight into potential opportunities and routes into procurement for suppliers for health services across the NHS, new ICSs and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs).
