In recent years, the aging of population is speeding up in the region, which brings a certain pressure to the economy and higher demand for social service resources. In line with national overall deployment, the principles and requirements for supply-side structural reform and elder people’s real demand for nursing and health care services, the health and family planning institutions of the region focus on policies, services and projects and other work and have made significant progress in integrated treatment and convalesce and elderly health care development. With innovative ideas, Beijing actively promotes the integration of health care with nursing services for the elderly by pooling advantageous medical management and service resources. Tianjin promotes the construction of the service system featuring the integration of treatment and convalesce with the principle of government leading, multi-participation, adaption to local conditions, highlighting priorities, multi-level and clear targets. Hebei Province takes the initiative and has explored and formed a work mode featuring the integration of treatment and convalesce, namely “four combinations and one focus” (the combination of government guarantee and social capital, the combination of home-based care and institution care, the combination of county, town and village, the combination of Chinese and western medicine and the focus on priority groups). After full discussion, the preventatives signed the Framework Agreement on the Coordinated Development of Elderly Health Care Services in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei. The main contents of the agreement include: policy exchange, technology exchange, and service integration and cooperation mechanism.

At the symposium, the representatives gained a clearer understanding of the national strategy of the integrated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei and the integrated development of health care and nursing for the elderly in the region and reached broad consensus, and preliminarily established the coordination mechanism to promote the integration of treatment and convalesce in the region. The fruitful results of the meeting will play a positive role in advancing the integration of treatment and convalesce in the region. As the cooperation mechanism improves and expands continuously, the communication and cooperation between Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei in personnel, projects and information and other aspects will be more close and smooth, which will give impetus to the integration of treatment and convalesce and elderly health care work in the region.
