Since January 2017, Imperial College Health Partners (ICHP) have delivered an accelerated development programme on new approaches to commissioning, accountable care and outcomes based contracting as part of the overall NW London Change Academy.
Delivering Outcome-based Care and Integration is a CME accredited course, which acts as an extension of the accelerated integrated care programme. The aim is to provide further capability to enable teams to work up real examples of commissioning based on outcomes rather than process measures.
Who is it for?
The Delivering Outcome-based Care and Integration programme is part of the 2017/18 Change Academy which is offering support and training to teams across North West London to support the delivery of the STP and commission services differently based on defining ‘value’ from the users’ perspective. The team must be multi-disciplinary and comprised of individuals from healthcare (primary and secondary care), local government, residents and service users, so that it is representative of the organisations and resident groups that will be impacted by the project.
The programme aims to provide practical support for teams with an aspiration to make a real measurable difference to existing commissioning practices. Throughout the programme they will have numerous opportunities to tackle real relevant issues and then translate learning back to their teams.
It is intended for teams who would like to tackle real issues during their integrated Care and Multispecialty Community Provider (MCP) trajectory. The programme offers extensive coaching, and spaces in this cohort are limited to just four teams. This programme is free to eligible health systems in North West London and open to wider organisations for a fee.
We want to develop a cohort of managers and clinicians who understand how to develop, implement or adapt accountable care or outcomes based solutions, thus building sustainability.
What’s changed from last year?
This year we have made a number of enhancements to the program format including:
The programme will be led by a team of national and international experts who have developed and successfully run outcomes-based and integrated care systems over a number of years. This includes the team from COBIC and Optimedis AG, who have built up an evidence base of what really works and have been helping health and care systems to develop the necessary insights and skills to be successful.
