The aim of the project was to inform the test sites on better use of joint resources within and across health and adult social care services. This supports the Scottish Government’s aim of improving health and social care outcomes for local people and shifting the balance of care. The review assessed the international literature on financial and resource mechanisms to integrate care (i) within health care and (ii) across health and social care. Integrated resource mechanisms (IRMs) were identified and assessed from an economic perspective.
