NHS England has developed Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) outcomes tools to provide interactive access to outcome and related indicators for all CCGs. The first tool it developed, the CCG Outcomes Tool, takes data from the CCG Outcomes Indicator Set to provide clear, comparative information for CCGs, Health and Wellbeing Boards, local authorities, patients and the public in England about the quality of health services commissioned by CCGs and the associated health outcomes. The indicators are useful for CCGs and Health and Wellbeing Boards to help identify local priorities for improvement and to demonstrate progress that local health systems are making.
The CCG Outcomes Tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables for all CCGs. An Outcomes Explorer allows the user to see the relationships between two outcomes, or between demographic information and outcomes. Rob Shaw, Economic Adviser, NHS England explains how the two were developed.
