The Delayed Transfers of Care (DToC) project, introduced in the 2017/18 work programme, looks in detail at discharge processes within organisations and delayed transfers of care across the pathway. Benchmarks included in the project cover service models, activity and outcomes. The project also explores the workforce composition of discharge teams, and associated costs within organisations.
Relevant to all providers, the project covers DToCs from acute hospitals, community hospitals and mental health facilities.
Members can participate in this project and receive:
- Access to the online benchmarking toolkit, allowing you to compare your service nationally across hundreds of metrics
- A bespoke PDF report summarising key messages and metrics highlighting your organisation's position
