We've produced two slide sets to help CCGs make the best use of measurement to support them to commission for improved outcomes (the pdf versions on the right include explanatory notes - to access, click on the comments icon on the top left of each page).
Pick'n'Mix: an introduction to choosing and using indicators
Our first slide set introduces general concepts about approaches to measurement in health care, the uses of structure, process and outcome indicators, and how to achieve a good mix of indicators for commissioning.
Measuring quality along care pathways
Our second slide set looks specifically at how commissioners can build up sets of measures along whole pathways of care.
