About the Clinical Commissioning Group Outcomes Indicator Set (CCGOIS)
The Clinical Commissioning Group Outcomes Indicator Set (CCG OIS) is an integral part of the NHS England's systematic approach to quality improvement. Its primary aim is to support and enable Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and health and wellbeing partners to plan for health improvement by providing information for measuring and benchmarking outcomes of services commissioned by CCGs. It is also intended to provide clear, comparative information for patients and the public about the quality of health services commissioned by CCGs and the associated health outcomes.
The CCG OIS contains indicators from the NHS Outcomes Framework that can be broken down at CCG level and additional indicators that can help to deliver improvements in quality. NICE's role is to provide support to NHS England by managing the process of developing these additional indicators for the CCG OIS. All indicators from the NICE CCG OIS indicator programme are evidence based and draw on NICE quality standards, NICE guidance or NICE accredited guidance.
The Indicators Process guide describes the process NICE uses to develop indicators from NICE quality standards, NICE guidance and NICE accredited sources. The process guide was consulted on from August to November 2013 and all stakeholder comments were considered accordingly.
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is a key partner with NICE for the indicator development programme. In order to develop indicators, development and testing work with the HSCIC is undertaken to produce the indicators and accompanying technical specifications.
Potential CCG Outcomes indicators are considered by the NICE CCG OIS Advisory Committee. The Committee will review the consultation responses at the May 2014 Committee meeting.
Consultation on potential new CCG OIS indicators
As part of the process to develop the CCG OIS stakeholders have the opportunity to comment on potential new indicators. The indicators are mapped against the five domains of the NHS Outcomes Framework.
It is anticipated that the next consultation will open in February 2015 for a four week period. Details will be available on the NICE website.
