What integration of health services is vital to deliver a coherent care package responsive to the needs, preferences and values of patients and to achieve desired outcomes? We will address this question by a reflection on a variety of real life practices, selected from oncology, elective surgery and chronic diseases. The cases show a robust common direction, a diversity of patients and parties involved and improved results.

We will share and discuss great steps health professionals and administrators in the Netherlands took to collectively focus on outcomes that matter to patients, arrange appropriate teams and pathways and create supporting information flows.
