About the packs

YHPHO has produced a Commissioning for Value pack for every Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in Yorkshire and Humber. The packs use a range of intelligence sources to systematically review spend, outcome, quality and variation across all programmes of care and a variety of benchmarks. They follow on from the CCG profiles which were produced by the NHS Commissioning Board in conjunction with YHPHO in June 2012.

The packs can be used to identify programmes of care which may offer the greatest opportunity for improvement in quality and productivity. Business Process Engineering is one approach that has been used successfully in the NHS to transform pathways to realise these types of benefits. YHPHO hosted a one day workshop on 25th September 2012 on using Business Process Engineering to support intelligence led approaches to service transformation.

Further information

The approach used was informed by work undertaken by NHS Right Care. Commissioning for Value packs have been piloted within the Derbyshire PCT cluster area. Aggregated CCG potential savings of £20.8m over the cluster area were identified together with case studies and recommendations of improvements to care pathways to tackle un-warranted variation.

Matthew Cripps has used the Business Process Engineering approach to generate millions of pounds of savings through QIPP programmes across the North West. Matthew was used as a consultant to help YHPHO develop the Commissioning for Value packs.
