Research at the ICA

At the Integrated Care Academy our research aims to optimise the health and wellbeing of people and communities while improving the overall effectiveness and sustainability of our integrated care systems. As we recover from a global pandemic that exposed stark inequalities, being responsive to the needs of our local communities is critical, which is why co-production is at the core of our research. In collaboration with Healthwatch Suffolk, we have developed an ‘ICA Co-production Hub’ that acts as an enabler for targeting populations in greatest need and maximising the impacts of our research.

Integrated care is rapidly developing into the preferred model of health and social care nationally and internationally. The ICA is working with world renowned researchers across the globe to offer new smarter ways of achieving seamless co-ordinated models of person-centred integrated care.

Through embracing digital technologies, i.e. partnering with the University of Suffolk’s DigiTech Centre, the ICA is delivering cutting-edge solutions to some of the world’s most challenging problems – as demonstrated in many of our current projects and publications listed below.
