What makes an integrated care ecosystem sustainable? Key aspects of life-cycle governance

The session comprises three main areas: a) Organisational models and funding mechanisms; b) Regulatory frame work (legal and ethical issues, education of work force, audit of work practices); and, c) Life-cycle governance (from initial deployment to adoption and maturity).
