3 Ideas“The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones”(John Maynard Keynes)“There are few new ideas in NHS reform, just ones that have found their time”
4 Take-home messagesWe have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shift the focus to commissioning for population healthCommissioning for value is all about culture changeIt requires a sustained focus on outcomes and investing in areas of proven cost-effectivenessIt requires us to operate collectively as a system with the right incentives in placeWe need high-quality and timely intelligence that is also joined-up across systems
6 NHS 5-year forward viewThe health and wellbeing gap: if the nation fails to get serious about prevention then recent progress in healthy life expectancies will stall, health inequalities will widen, and our ability to fund beneficial new treatments will be crowded-out by the need to spend billions of pounds on wholly avoidable illness.
7 NHS 5-year forward view: PHE’s priorities Public Health England’s new strategy sets out priorities for tackling obesity, smoking and harmful drinking; ensuring that children get the best start in life; and that we reduce the risk of dementia through tackling lifestyle risks, amongst other national health goals.We support these priorities and will work to deliver them. While the health service certainly can’t do everything that’s needed by itself, it can and should now become a more activist change of health-related social change. That’s why we will lead where possible, or advocate when appropriate, a range of new approaches to improving health and wellbeing.
8 Wanless got it rightWanless (2007): “Without improvements in productivity and greater efforts to tackle the causes of ill-health, even higher levels of investment in the NHS will be required than envisaged by the fully engaged or solid progress scenarios”‘Fully engaged scenario’: levels of public engagement in relation to their health are high: life expectancy increases go beyond current forecasts, health status improves dramatically and people are confident in the health system, and demand high quality care. The health service is responsive with high rates of technology uptake, particularly in relation to disease prevention. Use of resources is more efficient.
9 DiabetesPrevalence rising due to ageing population and obesity levels – new shared focus on preventionGood control (HbA1C etc) in primary careGetting people screened and achieving consistent screening rates across the countryAvoiding hospital admissions for (e.g.) lower limb amputationsPbR system and perverse incentivesi.e. we talk about prevention then reward more of the wrong type of activity
12 Focus of commissioning to date Transactional or transformational?
13 Source? Focus area Description 3 Proactively seek and build continuous and meaningful engagement with the public and patients, to shape services and improve health4Lead continuous and meaningful engagement with clinicians to inform strategy and drive quality, service, design and resource utilisation6Prioritise investment according to local needs, service requirements and the values of the NHS7Effectively stimulate the market to meet demand and secure required clinical, health and well-being outcomes8Promote and specify continuous improvements in quality and outcomes through clinical and provider innovation and configuration11Make sound financial investments to ensure sustainable development and value for money
14 Don Berwick (2001)“….measurement alone does not hold the key to improvement….measuring could be an asset in improvement if and only if it were connected to curiosity - were part of a culture primarily of learning and enquiry, not primarily of judgement and contingency”CfV is an improvement tool – performance management systems lead to defensive behaviour that is not conducive to a culture of improvement
15 Long-term agreements – a good old idea Marks & Spencer – quality / value / serviceRegular dialogue with suppliersDetailed technical / quality specificationsLength of relationshipFocus not all on cash flowPower balanceCould argue that M& S have been ‘commissioning for value’ for years
16 Population health systems: going beyond integrated care (King’s Fund Feb.’15) Key features of health systems that focus on population health:organisations working together across systems to improve health outcomes for defined population groupspopulation-based budgets to align financial incentives with improving population healthsystems have developed different strategies for different segments of the populations they servecommunity involvement in managing their health and designing local servicesintegrated health recordsscaled-up primary care systemsclose working with individuals to understand the outcomes and services that matter to themsupporting and managing individuals to manage their own health
17 Jönköping and the Triple Aim initiative improve the health of the populationenhance the patient experience of care (including quality, access and reliability)reduce, or at least control, the per capita cost of care"The Jönköping work has been shaped by an agenda focused on quality and safety which places the citizen at the heart of its servicesThe Jönköping model underlines the strategic role public health plays in improving the health and wellbeing of a population. The commitment to embedding quality improvement methodology and ensuring the needs of local populations are the key priorities for each organisationJönköping's commitment to partnership working across sectors, providing an almost seamless pathway for patients, is clearly one of the many reasons for its success
18 Jönköping: main themes The vertical integration of a quality improvement approach to healthcare. The board receive performance reports that are generated from systems implemented by staff trained in change management and who have an ethos of strong quality improvement as an expectation of their employmentA corporate approach to systems improvement that enables cross- departmental process development with notable clinician- management co-operationCohesion and consistency between the delivery of healthcare and public health and social policyA strong link between systems development and the financial reporting required to service any change in systems reporting that might result from the improvement work.
19 The concept of value – remember QIPP? QualityInnovationProductivityPreventionInitial focus: allocative efficiency / value for money / cost-effectivenessIt became all about cost-cuttingQuality improvement itself can save money, and be efficient
20 Value for money vs cashable savings Cost-effectiveness / efficiency / value for money are not the same as cost- cutting / cost savingsInvesting in prevention makes economic senseBut will it release cash in the short term?Implementing interventions that are deemed cost-effective within NICE cost/QALY thresholds will not necessarily save moneymost of the public health interventions that have been analysed are highly cost-effectivestill a need to prioritiseWider return on investment approach is neededCfV needs both a short and long term focus on prevention
21 The NHS has a strong role to play in prevention

27 The right supporting environment alignment of incentivesconflict between ‘Payment by Results’ in the hospital sector while we encourage more preventative care to keep people out of hospitalhealth and social care working together (avoiding cost-shifting)realistic time horizonsrecognising the need for short-term changes without losing focus on longer-term wider determinantsreal public engagement in debates about prioritisation“It is disappointing that so few boards identified public engagement as a priority, and there is no evidence of boards being creative in reaching out to local communities through, for example, social media” (King’s Fund report on H&WBs, Oct ‘13)permission to be bold about (dis)investment decisions

29 Spend & Outcome Tool (SpOT) Atlases of Variation
30 Spend & Outcome Tool (SpOT) Has been produced for several years now for the NHS (previously at PCT, now CCG, level)Essential starting point to know where to look further at areas of (e.g.) high spend / poor outcomeCould we develop a similar tool for local government?We all know that transport, education and housing contribute to health and wellbeing – can we start to look at those using a common framework?And look at the NHS-facing information alongside the local government information – single conversation within Health & Wellbeing Boards
31 Programme Quadrant Chart Shows how all programme budgets in your chosen organisation perform against the respective national averages, using modified z- scores plotted on axes.Spend plotted on the horizontal, outcome on the vertical.Can be viewed with weighted analysis (multiple outcome measures) or unweighted (single relevant outcome measures).SPOKEN:“In this example, we can see that our chosen local authority has a Public Health programme marker that lies outside the 1z box and is close to the 2z box on the outcome axis.A local commissioner may want to explore this programme further and can start this journey by assessing how the contributory sub-programmes for Public Health individually perform.”TECH NOTES:The vertical and horizontal central lines that bisect the quadrant charts represent the national averages of spend and outcome. Spend is plotted on the horizontal, outcome on the vertical. There are two boxes that represent 1SD and 2SD limits. The 2SD box is analogous to where 95% of organisations would be expected to fall.A programme lying outside the solid +/- 2 z scores box indicates that either the spend or outcome is sufficiently different to the national average to possibly warrant further review of either its spend, outcome or both.
32 Atlases of Variation First published in 2010 then 2011 Followed by a series of six themed atlases covering specific diseases or patient groups.New Atlas of Variation Compendium (a collaboration between Public Health England, NHS England and Right Care) coming soon.
33 SummaryWe know what needs to be done; it just needs to be done systematically and at scaleGetting incentives right and aligning them across different parts of the systemNHS and public health system working together on the investing in prevention agendaMaintaining the focus on long-term outcomes (the time horizon dilemma)The culture of commissioning is far more important than the process
34 Population health systems: going beyond integrated care (King’s Fund Feb.’15) “The permissive framework set out in the NHS five year forward view, with its emphasis on integrated care and health improvement, also provides a favourable policy context for the ideas set out here. Acting on these ideas should be seen as part of the health and care system’s efforts to achieve the ‘fully engaged scenario’ outlined by Derek Wanless more than a decade ago”

43 Adding local value to Commissioning for Value Lucy JacksonConsultant in Public HealthLeeds City Council
44 What did we do with Commissioning for value? Ensured it made sense locally.Choose issue for a local reason too.Added local data – to add to the pathway and triangulate.Wider footprint of Leeds but local too - 3 CCGs agreed on the same 2 areas.Brought all players together – Clinicians; CCG commissioners; Local Public Health with PHE. Citywide and within each CCG to work through.Ownership of approach - Conversations with clinical fora in each CCG – does this make sense , prioritise actions?
45 Local Strategic Context – Leeds Joint Health and Well Being Strategy Vision - Leeds will be a healthy and caring city for all ages Principle - People who are the poorest will improve their health the fastest Outcome one - People will live longer and have healthier lives
