Planned Care for Commissioners was a new project in the 2016/17 work programme. The project aims to provide a strategic overview of the investment in the healthcare system on planned care, and develop benchmarking analytics to fill the gap in the data already available to commissioners.
The project will take a holistic view of elective care commissioning. The project covers, outpatient activity, follow up to new ratios, conversion rates to surgery, referral to treatment times, referral management systems, integrated delivery models, key pathways, patient reported outcome measures and other quality indicators. The project links with the Theatres project completed by acute trusts.
