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.
Our process guide sets out in detail the processes involved in managing the development of indicators and ensuring that they are developed in an open, transparent and timely way, with input from individuals and stakeholder organisations.
Where possible, indicators that directly measure health outcomes are explored. However, where necessary, proxies for outcomes are used that measure health care processes that are linked to health outcomes and that can be substantially influenced by clinical commissioning groups as part of their commissioning activities.
In order to develop indicators, development and testing work with the Health and Social Care Information Centre is undertaken to produce the indicators and accompanying technical specifications.
Consultation on potential new CCGOIS indicators
As part of the process to develop the Clinical Commissioning Group Outcomes Indicator Set (CCG OIS) stakeholders have the opportunity to comment on potential new indicators.
The indicators have been mapped against the five domains of the NHS Outcomes Framework.
The consultation is now open for a four week period from Monday 3 February 2014 and will close at 5pm on Monday 3 March 2014.
How to submit your comments
Please note the institute can only accept comments on correct proforma
Comments received during the consultation will be considered by the CCG OIS Advisory Committee in May 2014. A set of recommended indicators will be published on the NICE website in August 2014 for consideration by NHS England. NHS England will then decide on the final indicators for 2015/16.
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.
