For those new to the Commissioning Value packs, we’ve put together a quick starter for ten – ‘Ten things to do with your CfV pack‘:

Focus packs – April 2016These focus packs provide more detailed information on those highest spending programmes previously covered by the earlier Commissioning for Value packs. The areas covered are: CVD; Neurological; and Respiratory.The packs include a wider range of outcome measures and information on the most common procedures and diagnoses for the condition in question. They help CCGs begin work on phase two of the RightCare approach ‘What to Change’ by using indicative data to identify improvement opportunities.The packs are now available for download from the links below:North RegionMidlands and East of England Region

Integrated Care Pathways insights – 2015
These new packs focus on integrated care pathways and complex patients. These packs are designed to support you with local discussions around commissioning decisions. They will:

  • help you compare how your CCG/LA performs compared to similar areas for 3 new integrated care pathways: maternity and early years, dementia & long term conditions and substance misuse & mental health
  • help you understand how much more or less you spend on inpatients, by condition, for the elderly and young children compared to similar areas.
  • help you see the impact the 2% of inpatients your CCG spends the most on has on the system. You will be able to see how the number of admissions for these patients ,and the associated A&E and outpatient attendances, compare with other similar areas.
  • help you see the diverse range of comorbidities complex patients are treated for
  • help your local discussions about how to improve the integration of services to improve value and outcomes

NHS England has produced an interactive version of the Commissioning for Value packs. There are two views of the data:

  • The Commissioning for Value Tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables for the indicators in the packs across CCGs, and to view a spine chart of all the indicators for one or more CCGs
  • The Commissioning for Value Explorer allows the user to explore the relationships between two indicators using maps and scatter plots.
