The aim of this module is for learners to critically evaluate how the NHS can improve quality of care to sustainably deliver the best possible outcomes for patients, by critically evaluating issues affecting contemporary healthcare systems to improve value. These include issues in harnessing the potential of technology, variation in access to services and the associated quality, cost, and outcomes; anything that does not add value to patient outcomes.
Issues raised by health economics will be critically explored including allocations processes, patient-level costing and outcome data. Improving value is a high priority in an NHS faced with delivering more each year within limited resources, therefore the role of NHS boards in driving change and in balancing competing priorities will be explored.
Enrol on our next intake and start your HFMA qualifications journey.
