The four pillars
Initially, the first phase of the iCAN programme will be divided into four areas of transformation work, which we are calling the four iCAN pillars. These are described below and also illustrated in the image opposite.
Pillar 1 – Primary and community care Ensuring that frail people in the community receive the right care and support at the right time so they can live as independently as possible
Pillar 2 – Frailty Ensuring the right services are available with adequate capacity in the community so that frail patients are only admitted to hospital if they need an intervention that can only be delivered in hospital
Pillar 3 – Discharge Ensuring that patients in all acute hospital settings have in place the right care at the right time with access to the right services, so they can live as independently as possible when they leave hospital
Pillar 4 – Northamptonshire Adult Social Services Target Operating Model (NASS TOM) Ensuring that we transform social care to develop a community place-based service focusing on supporting people to maintain independence
