Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention (QIPP) Commissioning

Efficient commissioning for IWCCG is measured in terms of performance against the Department of Health Quality, Innovation, Productivity & Prevention (QIPP) programme, as the guiding principle to help the NHS deliver its quality and efficiency commitments.

The QIPP Programme centres on four major workstreams, which incorporate five CCG strategic priority areas, all aimed at delivering system-wide transformational change. These are:

Long Term Conditions (LTC)

The IWCCG aim to improve the quality of life for people suffering from LTCs, and support them to manage their condition(s) and avoid complications which require hospital admission.

Projects within this workstream include:

  • Self-help programmes development through existing Island based support groups;
  • Risk stratification for resource targeting;
  • Integrated services and case management; and,
  • Care pathway redesign: Neurology, Heart Failure, COPD, Chronic Pain, and Rehabilitation.

The care pathway redesign projects are lead by IWCCG Clinical Leads.

Frail Older People

The CCG are working to ensure vulnerable, frail older people are treated with dignity and respect in the most suitable environment that can ensure the best clinical and personal outcomes.

Projects within this workstream include:

  • Supporting nursing and residential homes;
  • Developing care pathways for frail older people;
  • Piloting advanced care planning; and
  • Falls prevention.

Unscheduled Care

The IWCCG aim to commission the best quality services through an integrated health system that is simple to use, delivers the best outcomes and delivers care in the most appropriate place.

Projects within this workstream include:

  • Ambulatory care;
  • Crisis response services and alternatives to hospital admission;
  • Ambulance services;
  • Urgent Care Co-ordination Centre; and
  • Patient Transport Service

Mental Health

The IWCCG are striving to incentivise service redesign to deliver outcome based care, driving a shift from institutionalised to community based care

Projects within this workstream include:

  • Payment by Cluster;
  • Redesign of community mental health services;
  • Redesign of the mental health rehabilitation pathway;
  • Redesign of Dementia Services

 Other QIPP programmes being undertaken by IWCCG are:

  • Planned care;
  • Children; and,
  • Medicines Management.

The QIPP model identifies the productivity challenge in terms of finance, activity and workforce. Delivery of the QIPP programmes is crucial to achieving out financial and non-financial targets.
