Things we know. We want to build on the success of NHS Choices by increasing scale and scope. We want best of breed provision within an agile delivery model The core solution will be centrally funded for a 5 year term. We’re keen to explore social enterprise / alliance contracting. The current solution arrangement will run until March 14.
Things we still need to know. What is the market appetite for our preferred option(s)? How should the service(s) be arranged? What’s our transition plan? How best can we support the future market?
Introducing……. John Coulthard – Senior Responsible Owner
Commercial and Operating Model Options 12 Introduced by Ben Gregory – HSCIC Head of Procurement Tuesday August 13 th 2013
What are MY Objectives To deliver a model which improves capability and protects the public interest To deliver a transitioned service which protects the current service credibility whilst delivering a platform for future growth To deliver an efficient flexible service
What else besides… To improve the health and functioning of the market for digital Health and Social Care Services To maximise the capability delivered within available budget whilst recognising the true value in key aspects of the service To remove the centre as a barrier to the means of production in public good
What about the current service? The range and quality of the content is exceptional – it delivers the users to the current site The current operation is not optimised in commercial/financial terms nor in its production processes The current delivery model will not allow the level of expansion required by the Vision
Governance: Funding and Commissioning A role shared between DH and NHS England The commissioner requires an Agent to control and manage the delivery of onward services The commissioner may distribute funds via grants or through procured commissions, or a mixture of the two
Controls: Delivery Management The delivery Agent who Controls the development of the service may be a public body such as HSCIC, a private provider or an alternative form of organisation such as a Social Enterprise In order to move away from the current model which does not drive efficiency or exploit latent market capability the controlling Agent should be limited as to the services it Provides
Delivery: The Provider Market The distinction between controlling Agent and Provider naturally mitigates against a Prime Contract Model. We have two favoured models therefore: – Leverage – Strategic
Leverage Model Is assertive and interventionist within the market Assumes responsibility for Service Design and Integration Assumes low market difficulty and a mature market Focus on price, controls quality through definition and management
Strategic Model Releases the market, encourages self determined innovation within providers Abstracts itself from Service Design and Integration tasks Assumes that market requires active support, that maturity is low and barriers exist Focus on added Value and rewards quality
A Social Enterprise ? We are actively exploring the attractiveness and options for a Social Enterprise to function as controlling Agent What should the scope of such an organisation be? How would the market react?
An Alliance Contract In respect of the Strategic Provider model we are exploring the deployment of a central Alliance contract to deliver the core service platform What does the digital service market know about Alliance contracting? What is the appetite?
Where Does That Leave Us? Essentially we are focussing on two key combined models: Turn to Appendices B and C in your hand outs.
