  • 10am – 11am - NHS Rightcare - Delivering high value pathways:

The journey from normal to optimal. Exploring a typical patient's experience of a standard long-term conditions pathway and its impact on outcomes and cost for the patient, commissioner and wider society. The session will illustrate how Commissioning for Value principles and the NHS Right Care approach can support health economies to optimise the same pathway for patients in the future.

  • 11am – 12pm - NHS Right Care - Transformation and the art of the possible.

This will include a demonstration of STAR and also of how local Business Intelligence systems use can be enhanced to support live pathway, system and implementation management.

Matthew Cripps, Clodagh Warde, Prof Gwyn Bevan (London School of Economics) and NE CSU.

  • 12pm – 12:45pm - Alternative means of funding Transformation:

The development of transformed services will require investment that stimulates innovation and rigorous delivery and the rapid scaling of better practices. Commissioners therefore need to consider how contracting structures and strategic partnerships with providers can stimulate such approaches, and the full range of investment that may be available, including from the NHS, traditional commercial sources and new pools of 'social investment'. 

Drawing on Social Finance's practical experience of developing a number of new partnerships between commissioners, investors and providers to improve out-of-hospital care, this workshop will provide commissioners with an introduction to how to stimulate the effective investment in transformation. 

Ben Jupp is a Director at Social Finance, and leads their health and social care practice. He was previously Director of Public Services Strategy and Innovation in civil service and is a senior visiting fellow at the Nuffield Trust. 

  • 1pm – 2pm - Make, Share, Buy Masterclass:

NHS England will deliver a Make, Share, Buy (MSB) Masterclass.  The session will deliver a whistle-stop tour of MSB in action including why the MSB exercise and decision is important, CCG case studies, benefits and concerns of each type of decision,and tools that CCGs might use to support the decision making process.
