Increasing Day Case Rates for Emergency Care (Ambulatory Emergency Care)
Using quarter 1 2010 Secondary Uses Service data, the dataset available (82.44 KB) will help acute provider trusts and PCTs understand the current level of delivery of ambulatory emergency care and what the remaining potential is for increased ambulatory management. The NHS Institute published a 'How to Implement Ambulatory Emergency Care Guide' in October 2010.
Better Care, Better Value indicators
If every organisation (provider and commissioner) improved its performance to match that of the top quartile in each Better Care, Better Value (BCBV) indicator, NHS England could realise £2.4 billion in productivity benefits.
The Better Care, Better Value indicators reveal the potential to make significant cash or resource savings whilst improving quality. However, the key issue is what has to be done to actually realise the benefits. For this reason we have introduced the 'Converting the potential into reality' guides - one is aimed at NHS commissioners and the other is for provider organisations. These guides contain ten steps that commissioners/providers can take to use the BCBV indicators to maximum effect to improve quality and increase productivity.
