Pioneering a capitated budget framework for patients

In Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest CCGs, we developed a pioneering capitated budget framework for the whole patient population. This involved the development of systems and processes to hold data from GP practices and acute, mental health and community providers. We collaborated with the largest acute teaching trust in the country, Barts Health NHS Trust and linked in social care summary records at patient level to further enhance the dataset.

The development of this solution involved working across the health economy, which is now reaping benefits for both patients as well as supporting provider sustainability. Our team worked with senior clinical and data representatives from all stakeholder organisations and supported development of the legal framework for data sharing as well as the application.
