The term quality improvement (QI) is increasingly used across healthcare providers and is generally accepted to be aligned with efforts to achieve better outcomes for healthcare delivery. Whilst not always associated with direct cost reduction, increasingly organisations are recognising the link between outcomes and cost and therefore the link between quality improvement and value based healthcare.
East London NHS Foundation Trust established its QI approach several years ago and now has a comprehensive range of tools and support to empower their workforce to prioritise and drive improved outcomes for patients. The trust uses a structured approach to identify and measure the success of improvement projects. This includes a focus on collecting the right information to measure change, as well as having a pragmatic approach to using existing data to measure cost savings or cost avoidance.
This event is for senior NHS finance and healthcare professionals and will provide delegates with the know-how to begin applying value in practice.
A delegate-led day tackling specific technical costing challenges and discussing some of the practicalities of implementing the costing standards.
