1 Potential excess acute costs at XYZ PCT Dr Rod Jones Statistical Advisor Healthcare Analysis & Forecasting

2 Key Issues Capitation formula is linear but true relationship is sigmoid Low deprivation areas are under funded Gap is mainly NEL (£14M) of which £3M is excess zero day emergency Some EL (mix of counting & intervention) (£9M) PCT is attempting to recover a general gap against specific HRG Is this likely to be a successful strategy? Need to benchmark against the best West Berkshire and the RBH

3 Key Issues (contd) Three acute sites with different counting & coding issues LA data shows different levels of excess OP & IP A FT highest level of Plastic Surgery DC in the UK AAA LA Wycombe highest level of Gynaecology admissions BBB LA (M09, M05, N12) High levels of other first attendance at B NHS Trust CCC LA

4 Suggestions Segment all output areas (OA) into site catchments for EL, NEL and OP and performance manage by catchment Will make demand management more pro- active by virtue of focus Able to calculate expected/desirable demand at OA level, hence, specific & measurable targets for each catchment

5 Efficiency Measures 16% excess bed days within trim points 3% excess NEL bed days > upper trim point 1.4 FCE per Spell for NEL respiratory conditions (1.1 at RBBH) Highest level of transfers to residential care in South Central Surgical DC performance is OK Poor performance only in Ophthalmology 1,440 fewer DC Highest % DC in SCHA in C04 (minor mouth), C22 (nose), H22 (minor T&O), L98 Chemo Check to see if these are outpatient procedures counted as DC

6 Implications Beds occupied hence poor A&E performance Contract should state will not pay for excess bed days above national average Cost saving of 4,300 excess bed days £130,000 at £300 per excess day Benchmark: RBH 4,700 lower than expected Residential care & alternatives

7 Other Cost Pressures Number to be cleared from the waiting list in Bucks is highest in South Central relative to level of capitation funding Legacy issue with high impact in 07/08 and 08/09 However, this tied funding is released in 09/10

8 Outpatient First Attendance Considerable overlap between Plastic Surgery (£130)[1] & Dermatology (£115);[1] Gynaecology (£135) & Obstetrics (£154); Medical group (£161 to £260); Orthopaedics (£144), Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery (£130), Anaesthetics (£187); General Surgery (£151) and Urology (£157). Specify acceptable proportions in contract [1][1] The 06/07 PbR tariff for outpatient first attendance is given in brackets

13 Conclusions Counting of other is an issue Specify acceptable ratio of GP to Other Very high first attendance in specific OA May be function of GP practice Acute site catchment areas show high/low general patterns Allocate all OA to a site catchment and performance manage as a group Maximum possible saving of 24,600 first attend £5M at 07/08 tariff Possible early stage savings of £1.8M in SB and AV

14 Inpatient Identify all HRG lines with excess cost > £20,000 p.a. £14 M NEL and £9M EL

15 Elective >5,300 excess zero day elective High likelihood of minor procedures counted as DC £5.3M less alternative cost as RDA or OP Some specialist lines are high HRG C35 Major maxillo-facial Proportion of 0 & 1 day too high Coding issue?

16 Non-elective £1.8M is zero day NEL £0.9M of which from Wycombe LA Specify in contract that zero day NEL will be paid up to national average Any HRG ending 99 (Complex Elderly) May be a coding issue
