Outcome based commissioning

At yesterday’s roundtable, Jeff Boateng made a presentation on how they were trying to implement outcome based commissioning for Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group. As head of performance he has been helping the group wrestle with the need to commission much more joined up services for muscular and skeletal care.

The discussion ranged from the definition of outcomes, the performance standards and information disclosures required to the nature of the contractual relationships and the trust needed between commissioner and provider. The nature and limitations of NHS contracting was raised together with the ambitious aims of the project.
