The new models of care that are proposed at national and regional level increasingly converge towards the objective of gradually developing a model of territorial organization of care in which:
the hospital can no longer be the central reference point of the system and the only place dedicated to the provision of support services
the basic response of the health system is moved to a level closer to the citizen and the local community, with the possibility of accessing it throughout the day;
from a quantitative and qualitative point of view, the supply of first-level health responses is expanded, within the framework of predefined diagnostic-therapeutic pathways, based on the interrelationship between local medicine and specialized medicine;
It is estimated that one in four elderly people is affected by one or more chronic diseases, the “new epidemics” which cause more than 50% of frequent hospitalizations each year and absorb around 80% of health expenditure. To reduce access to emergencies, inappropriate hospitalizations and improve quality of life, a paradigm shift in care is needed. The territory and the home are the privileged places of care, while hospitals are responsible for emergencies and high specialization. Chronic diseases concern all age groups, but special attention must be paid to the frail and elderly. The integration between general practitioners, pediatricians of free choice, medical specialists, home nurses and community family nurses is fundamental for these aspects.
