      Why do we need intermediate care ?
• Provide high quality service with better outcomes

• Too many older people

• Too many older people in hospital

• Too many of the wrong sorts of older people in hospital

• Demand to contain or reduce hospital costs = reduce
                             length of stay


   An opportunity to design better services for
                      older people
PROFESSIONAL RESPONSE TO
   INTERMEDIATE CARE

            “I’m going to keep my
              eyes tightly closed
              until this nasty
              intermediate care
              thing has blown
              over”
 Welsh Definition of Intermediate Care
  STANDARD – Intermediate Care is established as a mainstream,
  integrated system of health and social care which:

• Enables older people to maintain their health, independence and
  home life;
• Promptly identifies and respond to older peoples health and social
  care needs, helping to avoid crisis management and unnecessary
  hospital or care home admission;
• Enables timely discharge or transfer, promoting effective
  rehabilitation and independence.

  National Service Framework for Older People in Wales.
  (March 2006)
  AIMS OF INTERMEDIATE CARE
1. Responding to, or averting, a crisis
                                          Admission prevention
2. Active rehabilitation following an acute hospital stay
                                               Early discharge
3. Where long-term care is being considered
                                 Prevention of long term care
4. Chronic long term Conditions Management.

Service Characteristics of Welsh
       Intermediate Care
• Integrated approach to local planning, commissioning, delivery
  and evaluation
• Early discharge or admission prevention
• Actions based on rapid comprehensive unified assessment and
  response
• Maximises independence with force on rehabilitation
• Multi-agency working –integrated teams supported by sound,
  network and governance

 Clinical futures (gwent)

  • inpatients 634/2082 (30.45%)
  • I.C – 35% NHS facilities; 65% community

  45% is a very big number!

     BUT, although size matters


 It’s NOT the only thing that matters
        Summary of RCT Evidence for
       Intermediate Care Service Models
                    (*Cochrane Reviews)
•Nurse-led Units*    10 trials        ? Increase mortality
                     (n=1,896)        Increase overall LOS

•Day hospital*       12 trials        Effective but expensive
                     (n=2,867)

•Care homes          1 trial          Shift costs to social care
                     (n=165)

•Community Hosp      1 trial          Cost effective
                     (n=490)

•Hosp-at-home*       >20 trials       3 separate Cochrane reviews
Hospital-at-Home: definition………

Hospital care but delivered in the person’s own
home !!!

HaH = “….a service that provides active treatment by
health care professionals, in the patient’s home, of a
condition that would otherwise require acute hospital in-
patient care, always for a limited period.”
                                Cochrane definition, 2005

 But does this mean we are going to save money?
Hospital-at-Home Intermediate Care:
Three conclusions……………………….

1. Limited RCT evidence base

2. Flexible type of service:
   •Different patients groups
   •Early discharge and admission avoidance

3. Can reduce hospital bed use improve outcome (better
ADL’s, reduce whole system costs and be cost-effective
system of care
BUT….              not always……….
  Evaluation of Leeds city-wide I.C. service:

Bradford, UK Community Hospital Study

Single centre RCT (n=220) of CH v Acute Hospital Geriatric
Dept care for patients with “Geriatric Syndromes”
CH was locality-based (population of 92,000)
CH provided I.C. as an early discharge service


Findings:
 • Greater functional independence at six months

• Improved patient experience of hospital care
 • Cost-effective

Conclusions:

1. Rehabilitation in the CHs was associated with a
   statistically significant improvement in medium term (6
   month) independence outcomes – better EADL
2. CH associated with trends to fewer “poor” outcomes
3. Patient/carer experiences favour CH
4. Affordable cost……yes; £17,000 per (QALY)
