First Commissioning Outcomes Framework (COF) indicators

NICE has published the first menu of 44 new proposed indicators recommended by the commissioning outcomes framework (COF) advisory committee.

This menu of indicators will now be considered by the NHS Commissioning Board for potential inclusion in the 2013/14 COF and covers areas including aspects of care given immediately after a stroke and also following hospital discharge after treatment for stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, maternity care and mental health services. From April 2013, the COF will hold clinical commissioning groups to account for improvement in quality of healthcare and patient outcomes through better commissioning.
