Annual Population Value Reviews (APVR) – to help commissioners reflect on their priorities and maximize value for patients, populations and commissioners from health investment by improving the allocation of resources to maximise outcomes – so-called “allocative efficiency”.
Right Care continues this series and has published a third APVR continues but with a new focus on population planning. The report is a guide and manual to using the techniques of programme budgeting, marginal analysis and the various health investment analysis tools available to the NHS to maximise value from health investment. The tools, experience and evidence base have grown since the last APVR and new sections have been added on QIPP and service line management.
Previous editions of the Annual Population Value review are also available.
