Clinical Outcomes Publication programme 2016-2020

Clinical Outcomes Publication | Published: 05 May 2016 | Author: HQIP

The Clinical Outcomes Publication programme, previously called Consultant Outcomes Publication, represents an ambitious endeavour which has successfully demonstrated that transparency around clinical outcomes can be achieved at large scale across a wide range of clinical specialties. In 2015/16 the programme supported the publication of more than 50 indicators from 13 distinct clinical specialties, covering more than 550,000 episodes of care.

Our key goals have been to:

  • Stimulate improvement in the quality of clinical care
  • Improve monitoring of consultant’s outcomes and governance arrangements for managing outlying data
  • Reassure patients that the quality of clinical care is being actively monitored and improved
  • Support shared decision making involving patients, including choice of provider, general practitioners, and consultants
  • Further the cultural shift wherein medical specialty associations are becoming increasingly patient-focused
  • Support the increasing involvement of individual trust executives, especially the medical directors, in understanding their role in assuring the quality of their individual services and assuring that participation is as close to 100% as possible
  • Support consultant appraisal and hence revalidation
  • Promote and continue to develop standards for audits in relation to issues such as outlier management and data validation
  • Support a wide range of audits in a positive improvement journey to enhance  the overall quality of national audits to enable a wider range of data to be published
