It would be really helpful to know what you would like to see added to the health investment site.  We can then start to tailor the content a bit more. 

If you are aware of any additional useful resources, links or references, please inform us so that we can add them to the site for all to share.

So, please, reply to this post and let us know what you think.

Hello Phil

I have been using the tools to provide insight to PCT commissioner colleagues and clinicians.

 

It would be helpful to have an update of when the data will be refershed and whether "package" tailored to GPCs is being considered

Hi Karen

It's good to hear that you have found the tools useful. The plan is to publish the 2009/10 programme budgeting data in December.  We are currently testing a GP practice/consortia version of the health investment packs with a number of NHS colleagues.  We are happy to share our thinking with you and anyone else who would like to be involved.

Hi Phil:

I am working with the DH QIPP programme for LTC's as a local project lead and also with the DH in planning a pain summit later on in the year. I am trying to attribute costs due to pain and work out the impact of the QIPP programe on the overall budget. I know there is a programme budgeting category (7a) for pain. You need to attribute some costs elsewhere as well. I was wondering what it would take to put some pain stuff into the NHS Atlas?

Dear Cathy

You raise an interesting issue.  The Programme Budgeting ICD codes for pain relate to neurological diseases, but of course pain is a symptom of many diseases, especially LTCs such as arthritis.  In fact most of the NHS costs for a disease such as arthritis are related to reduction of pain or disability, which in health economic terms cane be captured by patient-reported  outcome measures such as EQ5D or Oxford scores.  To begin to obtain quantitative estimates you could start by evaluating the contribution to costs/QALY of quality rather than length of life for some key diseases.  You need a health economist!

I'd be interested to hear more about what you are proposing. As it happens we are scoping out a second Atlas for this year. Our experience last time was that only suggestied maps made it through where there is good data and indicators, and of course, the map has to have some "news"! in it. You can contact the team via this email address: info@qipp-rightcare.net

Hi
I have found the PROMT tool really helpful. I work as Public health specialist and am planning to use it with commissioning colleagues.  Is there a version  by provider as well as by commissioner? I do apologise if it obvious and I have missed it.

Hi Pat

Apologies for the delay in replying.  

We're pleased you're finding PROMT useful for your work with commissioners. Please let us know how you get on as we are keen to add to our case studies section. 

We are looking at developing a provider version. However, the Information Centre has published PROMs score comparator tools which you may also be interested in. The finalised score comparison 2009-10 file is available from the following website: 

http://www.hesonline.nhs.uk/Ease/servlet/ContentServer?siteID=1937&categoryID=1583

The provisional score comparison 2010-11 file is available from the following website:

http://www.hesonline.nhs.uk/Ease/servlet/ContentServer?siteID=1937&categoryID=1582

I hope this is useful. 

Best Wishes
