8 New ways of working Outcome focus Procurement Individual budgets

9 Responding to changing times value/impact/outcomes Public Administration Select Report need evidence to demonstrate what we can offer procurement and commissioning sector needs better understanding of rules and principles also need commissioners/funders to focus on right things individual budgets flexible and enterprising ensuring and monitoring quality and outcomes

10 Measuring outcomes : context  move towards outcome-based commissioning and monitoring in public service delivery  move towards contracts rather than grants  limited progress in practice more talked about than practised, variation requires cultural shift plethora of tools but often process-oriented need for more consistent & robust approaches  is compulsion essential to overcome barriers?

11 Measuring outcomes : challenges Strategic challenge defining desired outcomes - be clear and specific (even if can’t measure them) Measurement challenges identifying outcome indicators balance depth of information with practicality of collecting it attribution and baselines conceptual model e.g. whose assessment people adapt to difficult circumstances

12 Measuring outcomes : some approaches  Communities : Outcome Based Accountability  Organisations National Outcomes Programme (CES) Social Return on Investment (nef) Social accounting & audit (various)  Services Outcomes Star (Triangle Consulting) NPC well-being tool for children Substance project reporting system

13 Measuring outcomes : developments  Quality Measurement Framework project  Camden Outcome-Based Commissioning Framework

14 QMF project  adult social care care homesdetailed observation/assessment daycare self-completion  pre-school education  compare detailed measures and regulatory lower burden indicators  volume & characteristics of services by third sector

15 Uses of QMF adult social care measure Validated approach to establishing outcomes for care home residents & day-care users - basis for outcome-based commissioning & monitoring Relationship between regulator assessments and resident experiences – support tand influence regulation using outcomes Provide national measures of quality – to allow outcomes-related quality adjustment of National Accounts

22 Conceptual base for measurement 9 domains e.g. personal care; control over daily living outcome gain= Q x CfB on each domain Q : what current service delivers quality /outcome achieved /current level of needs CfB: what service could deliver difference between need level in absence of services (how reliant) and ‘perfect’ service add across domains using preference-based weighting

23 Example: Personal care I feel clean and presentable I do not feel as clean and presentable as I would like I do not feel at all clean and presentable and have poor personal hygiene
