A bi-national conversation recorded in video: Development and scaling of integrated care systems in Germany and Great Britain, using the example of “Gesundes Kinzigtal”
In a half hour-long, English-language video production which was developed for a webinar for the British NHS, Dr Nicholas Hicks, Director of OptiMedis-COBIC UK ltd, Dr Alexander Pimperl (Vice Chairman of the Board OptiMedis AG and CEO Gesundes Kinzigtal GmbH), and Dr Oliver Gröne (Vice Chairman of the Board OptiMedis AG, CEO Gesundheit für Billstedt/Horn UG, and Director Optimedis-COBIC UK ltd) exchanged ideas on the important aspects in the development and scaling of integrated care systems in the German and British healthcare systems. They offer interesting insights into the development and implementation of Gesundes Kinzigtal, the role of OptiMedis as a population health management company, and the scaling of the OptiMedis model over the past two years (in Billstedt-Horn and in the Werra-Meißner district). They additionally look at integrated care in the NHS context, consider how to bring this to the next level, and explain the contracts on the implementation of the model.
