IHCRC 2018 offered an excellent platform for participants to learn from the experiences shared by speakers from various countries on some of  the challenges faced by their healthcare systems when moving patient care from hospital to community. It was heartening to know that we are not alone in managing some of the issues faced when transferring patient care such as in funding models and IT system while integrating patient care.

I was pleased to see so much happening on practice transformation and facilitation despite not having the kind of investment the US has made. I was particularly taken with the outcomes from the Western Sydney effort and with UQ’s thorough development, testing and implementation of PC-PIT. I am always pleased to get updates from Pegasus and Pinnacle—those two kiwi health systems have a lot to teach all of us, but mostly that primary care organizing principles and population health vision are a the heart of building efficient, effective health systems in which clinician joy is likely to be higher.

Dr Nick Goodwin
CEO, International Foundation for Integrated Care
Oxford, UK

It was excellent for IFIC to be involved in this important conference and to share some of the international lessons and experiences of systems that have embraced integrated care. I was left with the impression that all delegates, from many different countries, embrace the need for healthcare reform and that the challenges for a more people-centred and sustainable approach remain universal.

Prof Trish Greenhalgh
Professor of Primary Care Sciences, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences
University of Oxford, Oxford, UK

This conference was unique in so many ways – great mix of academics, policymakers and practitioners; great sense of energy; great ideas for change. Brilliantly organised and in an idyllic setting in Double Bay that will add to the memories for years to come.
