Outcomes versus Expenditure Tools

A very useful tool... that helps identify and provide evidence for service redesign potential which will improve quality, efficiency and clinical outcomes for both commissioner and patient”

Commissioner

Using the Outcomes versus Expenditure Tools you can compare expenditure and other aspects of services with a number of outcome measures at local authority and primary care trust (PCT) level.

As a commissioner, the Outcomes versus Expenditure Tools allow you to pinpoint opportunities to improve the quality of outcomes and productivity for services in your local area. You can use the tools to:

  • Compare expenditure within a fixed area with service performance in terms of health and well-being outcomes.
  • Identify where either your expenditure or performance is significantly different to that of other organisations including your statistical neighbours.
  • See where you are an outlier.
  • Find better performing organisations you might be able to learn from about what works well and how you can replicate it.

You will also find the tools useful if you are a provider of services, as a means of sparking discussion with local commissioners about ways to improve services.

The Outcomes versus Expenditure Tools currently available are:

  • CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health services) updated
  • Child Health
  • Maternity and Newborn

You can find out more about each tool below or follow the link to use the tools.
