Taking the reins - leading delivery of the FYFV and strengthening STPs

Despite restructuring of the NHS commissioning landscape now arguably behind us, it is unlikely that there will be one single model of commissioning in the future. Yet as outcomes and place-based commissioning steer the national policy agenda, the right kind of leadership must be sought. This address will therefore outline:

  • the past year’s 2020 target progress and assess how STP leadership is developing to cope with the task ahead
  • the growing involvement of local authorities and wider effort by national bodies to support system-wide leadership
  • national support plans to allow commissioners to effectively take on accountable care models
  • where capital funding can and is being best utilised in the last year of the new care models

Nurturing outcomes-based and accountable care commissioning in the NHS

Shifting demographics, growing demand and financial pressures means the NHS must develop new models of care, delivering better outcomes at lower cost and transforming the relationship between clinicians and patients. Learning lessons from international models of care signals the way forward for the NHS, specifically in delivering new commissioning, outcomes based, accountable care models. This session will hence explore:

  • Lessons from international experience in shifting to accountable care
  • How commissioners and providers can work together as system leaders in a new era of NHS care delivery
  • Delivering outcomes over the long-term, allowing space for innovation and integrating care around patients
  • How the payment mechanism can better support new models of care

STPs one year on – from plans to partnerships (panel discussion)

As Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships are now taking shape, but advancing in varying degrees, this panel will bring the strategic, commissioner, provider and local authority perspectives together to share real-time experience, discuss challenges and ask:

  • Where are we now in terms of effective implementation and was the timeline realistic?
  • How do STPs working across large areas at-scale differ to those working on a subsidiarity basis?
  • Which STPs are advancing fastest to combine the commissioner and provider function and become fully integrated?
  • Are national support programmes proving valuable and which STPs are gaining capital funding?
  • How are changes to incentives and performance management in the NHS being used to overcome barriers?
  • How strong is STP transparency and engagement with all relevant national, local, voluntary and third sector partners?

Combining resources in the procurement of common goods and services

Collaborative buying has the potential to achieve significant efficiencies in the procurement of common goods and services, accounting for approximately £7billion of total NHS expenditure. In order to drive maximum value for the NHS and fully realise the savings potential, procurement capability across the NHS landscape should combine resources and work collectively at both a national and regional level. With senior stakeholder collaboration influencing and leading an effective NHS procurement strategy, this session will shed light on:

  • The evolving relationship of the CCS with the NHS Customer Board for Procurement & Supply and NHS procurement hubs
  • Current developments within the CCS operating model and its integration with NHS commercial priorities
  • How wider NHS stakeholders can get engaged with the commercial delivery plans now in development

Leveraging technology to select, implement and manage integration across systems

The adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) has exploded over the last decade, giving rise to many new types of systems and products aimed at managing health outcomes. Whilst the notion of connecting these systems together across providers to offer patients a seamless experience, appears to be a no brainer – there are various costs and risks which must be considered along with incentives. This session will explore:

  • The impact of population health and need for EHR systems to talk with each other to exchange patient data
  • Aligning people, processes and technology with business and clinical goals to allow IT initiatives to yield maximum value
  • Leveraging a strong systems integrator, to pull all the pieces together across hospitals, GPs, government agencies and technology providers

Digital steps on the road to personalised, paperless health and care by 2023

Making effective use of information, technology and data across the health and care system is an enormously important endeavour. This becomes even more prevalent with the primacy of Sustainability and Transformation Plans in 2017 and the need for Local Digital Roadmaps to now fit in. A robust portfolio of programmes at a national and local level are fundamental to the development of this agenda, yet must be responsive to local customers and remain close to the front line. Beverley Bryant will hence lay out the commitment to and progress being made in delivering digital and cultural transformation on the ground, through these core and evolving channels.

New Models of Care Theatre
How far has the system come in designing and implementing the right business models to support NCMs? (panel discussion)
As the new care models programme comes to the end of its third and final year, the focus across the system is on ensuring success of the existing models is spread across all health and care services. A fundamental element of this is to ensure that finance, governance and contracting arrangements – effectively making up the overall business model – are clear and can be replicated, building on the progress made to date. This panel led by Sam Jones will therefore reflect on the past three years and provide clarity on:
  • How to move your NCM from loose coalition to establishment on a sound legal footing under contract
  • The three key contractual vehicles being used by commissioners to deliver integrated services and which are proving to be most effective
  • The shared set of draft contracting documents provided by NHS England, and evidence of how they’ve aided sites to go live in 2017
  • International experiences of health and care economies and how they have helped to enforce NHS payment-system reform, to better support NCMs
  • Ways in which the system can ensure widespread replication of the new models of care and various work streams, beyond the existing vanguards
  • How the system can allocate crucial time for best practice sharing and what tools are already available to support this

In response to the most severe cyber-attack to ever hit the NHS on the 12th May 2017, this theatre will provide the opportunity to exchange experiences of efforts to remediate the short-term and long-term effects, as well as ensure the sector works together to protect NHS systems from future attacks. With lack of national investment and an ageing infrastructure at the root of NHS vulnerability, along with one-fifth of all Trusts having been infected, finding the right cyber-security solutions to defend the safe-running of vital services has never been so important. This theatre will therefore showcase the work by health officials and professionals on the ground to mitigate the effects in the days following the attack and explore which solutions can help to significantly improve NHS defences.

Commissioning for the Future Stage
To what extent have commissioners moved into a new strategic space? (panel discussion)

The NHS has undergone a period of major change, however with the 2016 overhaul of commissioning structures now largely in place, the system must seek to prioritise resources and adapt in line with changes to local services. Whilst commissioners cannot delegate their statutory functions, they can contract them differently through new structures, ensure providers are accountable for the delivery of agreed outcomes and ultimately migrate to emerging integrated care models. Effectively marking an end to the purchaser-provider split, this panel will therefore discuss the:

  • continued and unique value of clinical commissioning which must be retained

Commissioning for the Future Stage
Northumbria’s transition into a single Accountable Care Organisation (ACO)

ACOs have become the national progression from new models of care, which integrate services previously provided separately and see a group of providers agree to take responsibility for all care for a given population, under a contractual agreement with a commissioner. Stepping out of historical organisational boundaries, this case study will reflect on lessons learnt from the US, track the pros, cons and challenges of accountable care through the Northumberland ACO development and outline how the single contract has allowed the county council and CCG to effectively form one commissioning body for health and social care.

Global Digital Exemplars - delivering a new breed of digitised services

The landmark proposals announced by the health secretary in September 2016, involving around 30 digitally mature trusts receiving up to £10m, have signalled a significant shift to prioritise the most digitally mature hospitals for central funding. With the ‘Global Digital Exemplars’ now having established themselves as the Ivy League of trusts, Will Smart will provide an overview on delivery of the excellence programme in 2017, expansion to include a second round of national excellence centres, dedicated focus on securing funding for mental health and establishment of an academy dedicated to delivering a digital workforce.

Overhauling Sheffield’s information technology strategy in response to the growing threat of cybercrime

Published in the Trust’s December 2016 board papers, was the recognition that due to cyber-attacks now posing the most significant digital threat to the Trust, an overhaul of their information technology strategy was imminent. With many Trusts also re-evaluating their cyber security in the wake of the damaging ransomware attack on Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust last year, this case study will explain why and how one of the country’s largest NHS Trusts is going to great lengths to protect itself against cyber-attack, in response to major changes in the global, NHS and trusts contexts for information and technology.

How can we learn from and broadcast real incidents of NHS cyber-attack to better protect in the future? (panel discussion)

Historically, there have been few cyber security attacks in the NHS which have gained major industry and media attention. Yet as the risks grow and further incidents occur due to increased information sharing across health and social care, it becomes imperative for these to be broadcasted and for experiences to be shared among Trusts in order to tackle cyber security collectively. This panel will debate:

  • Is CareCERT delivering the expected results from its broadcasting of national level threat advisories to the NHS?
  • What are the most detrimental effects of a cyber security attack in the NHS and ultimately in terms of implications for patient care?
  • How can we instil a culture in the NHS that the cost to remediate is much more than the cost to prevent?
  • In what ways can we most effectively monitor and assess improvements in prevention and incident management?
  • How can we ensure that more cyber security attacks gain the necessary national media attention?
  • Have we seen the mandatory requirement to report information governance incidents shift to encompass the lurid world of hacking?
  • How can we move forward from the view that cyber security is solely the responsibility of IT departments?
  • Has it been possible to counteract the concerns regarding reputational risk and ensure transparency?

Can the proposed NHS patient “data lake” based on STP footprints restore trust in nationally performed analytics?
In early 2017, NHS officials met with IT suppliers to discuss a national patient data collection service that will make both pseudonymised and identifiable patient data available for research. Based on the 44 Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) footprints and giving them responsibility for gathering and controlling patient data, this regional approach would support subsequent sharing of information with a national data platform, to enable nationally performed analytics. Yet with growing concerns that central NHS organisations are simply creating a successor to care.data by resurrecting key elements, this panel will debate:
  • Do the benefits outweigh the risks in creating another national ‘data-lake’?
  • Will devolution of power to the regional areas covering up to five million people, rather than central control, avoid major pushback from the public?
  • How will regional data obtained through interoperable information exchange feed in to this national data service and be used for service planning, payments, analytics and research?
  • In what ways can patients play an active role in generating and using data, to control how health and care providers use their data?
  • How does the proposed data collection model align with a growing focus on developing shared care records across STP footprints?
  • How can we learn from the mistakes of the care.data scheme and re-build patient trust in nationally performed analytics?

HSCN – better, faster, cheaper connectivity and the foundations for transformed health and care services
The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) provides a reliable, efficient and flexible way for health and care organisations to access and exchange electronic information. Following the end of the N3 network arrangements in March this year, health and care organisations have been able to buy new, interoperable HSCN network services from a choice of suppliers in a competitive marketplace. A number of HSCN procurements have been launched already and the opportunities for reducing costs, improving value for money and collaborating on shared, integrated services are beginning to be realised. This session will look at progress to date and provide guidance on how to successfully migrate to and benefit from HSCN.

Moving from hype to hope – using Virtual Reality in primary care
Virtual Reality (VR) is somewhat new territory for the NHS – but what role is there for VR in medicine, to make existing treatment more effective and where are there practical examples of its application in the NHS to date? This session will explore the wide availability of VR technology in the 21st century and provide insights on:
  • The four principle components of VR and evidence-based benefits for clinical application
  • The formation of the online ‘VR Doctor’ community for the NHS
  • How VR is being used in primary care, and where it can go next
  • What barriers clinicians, commissioners and providers are coming up against in making VR a widespread and meaningful clinical tool
  • Results from testing VR as a care tool in Liverpool, both for treating patients and helping clinicians meet remotely

Delegated commissioning – equipping primary care to meet future challenges
Delegated commissioning has enabled Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge (BHR) CCGs to develop greater stability within primary care and to identify the platform from which new models of care will progress. This case study will therefore evaluate the benefits and critical success factors which have led to BHR CCGs’ collaborative progress in 2017, ultimately developing more integrated, place-based commissioning for their population. It will assess key developments, including:
  • Primary care strategies co-produced with members
  • Improved access to primary care seven days a week
  • Redesigned clinical pathways that have reduced demand on secondary care
  • A quality dashboard to monitor key service areas such as diabetes, respiratory conditions and patient experience
  • A shared vision across the CCGs that feeds into STP development

Medicines optimisation and pharmacy procurement
Medicines are an essential component of health services and are the most common clinical intervention, costing the NHS around £11billion a year. Hospital medicine expenditure is also rising by about 12 percent a year, partly due to the introduction of new high cost medicines. In this case study, a leading NHS Trust will therefore reflect on initial implementation of their Hospital Pharmacy Transformation Plan (HPTP) and assess how efficient procurement processes are:
  • Making savings on a range of pharmacy, medicines and related products
  • Allowing for performance benchmarking against other similar providers
  • Enforcing multiple local work streams to transform and rationalise pharmacy services, also linked to STP development

Bolstering the benefits of blockchain technology and verifiable data audits in the NHS
In 2017, Google’s DeepMind has begun to develop a blockchain-like technology capable of securely tracking NHS patient data. The Veritable Data Audit programme is looking to build on blockchain’s growing recognition as a highly promising database system, due to its unmatchable security and ease of data sharing capabilities – with health pilots cropping up across the globe. Yet with key differences including the lack of a ‘chain’ and the ability for the NHS to verify their datasets, this session will explore:
  • What benefits does the Veritable Data Audit programme have over traditional blockchain technology?
  • How does the new DeepMind project feed in to existing collaboration with the Royal Free London NHS FT?
  • What can we do to ensure that essential confidentiality safeguards are in place in order to embrace the opportunity to improve healthcare quality?
  • How does such technology allow for exchange of data gathered from multiple owner mediated data sources, capturing all interactions?
  • In what ways are data security concerns expressed by the public being overcome through the building of trust, transparency and better control of data?
  • How will the use of such technology help to deliver an audit trail, more secure than anything witnessed previously?

Aligning LDRs with STPs – breaking boundaries in Dorset

With Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) now acting as the “single application and approval process for being accepted onto programmes with transformational funding from 2017/18 onwards”, the Local Digital Roadmaps (LDR) initiative has seen submission and implementation deadlines directly aligned with STPs. With challenges and opportunities as a result, this session will provide practical evidence of how the LDR and STP have been jointly developed in Dorset. It will also explore how embedding information and digital technology in the Dorset STP has been a crucial requirement of implementation, therefore defining what good looks like.

Implications of the IG Toolkit shake-up for Trusts and in meeting the modern needs of patients

In late 2016, NHS England set up a new information governance network, indicating the big changes ahead for the IG Toolkit. The network’s inception and increasing perception of the toolkit’s complexity and inflexibility for those organisations applying it, has instigated an overhaul in the guidance which must be adhered to. This session will therefore reflect on whether steps taken to collaborate, share best practice, improve guidance and hold national bodies to account have ensured that IG is now a meaningful tool to advance health and wellbeing for those Trusts actually tasked with using it on the ground.

Mobile technology first – responding to real clinical demands
Developing mobile in-house skills for healthcare professionals offers the NHS a way to provide information at clinician’s fingertips and respond swiftly to clinical demands. Whereby large clinical ICT systems have historically been the priority for NHS organisations there is now a positive energy around developing mobile tools to fit the needs of its specific staff and patients. With clinicians now driving app development, this session will explore:
  • Why healthcare apps require clinical input to be successful
  • Where clinicians are using their own devices within the hospital to help deliver care
  • Whether NHS Trust enforcement of new programmes for mobile app development are becoming widespread
  • How Trusts can find new ways to build clinical mobile skills, despite lack of capacity or additional resource
  • The creation of first of their kind, clinically-led and integrated apps in Leicestershire and Hillingdon

Implementing interoperable systems to support population health management in Wirral
This year, NHS organisations in Wirral have sought to implement systems to support population health management, combining data and processes from across the different health organisations and consolidating its status as one of the acute Global Digital Exemplars. This case study will evaluate how far Wirral has come in developing these systems to date and provide evidence of why a lot of problems faced by hospitals, must be solved in the community. It will also delve into Wirral’s investment in collaboration with the rest of the community on the kind of interoperability that will support NCMs and population health management, including support for social care, care homes, the third sector and population itself.

Can the proposed NHS patient “data lake” based on STP footprints restore trust in nationally performed analytics?
In early 2017, NHS officials met with IT suppliers to discuss a national patient data collection service that will make both pseudonymised and identifiable patient data available for research. Based on the 44 Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STP) footprints and giving them responsibility for gathering and controlling patient data, this regional approach would support subsequent sharing of information with a national data platform, to enable nationally performed analytics. Yet with growing concerns that central NHS organisations are simply creating a successor to care.data by resurrecting key elements, this panel will debate:
  • Do the benefits outweigh the risks in creating another national ‘data-lake’?
  • Will devolution of power to the regional areas covering up to five million people, rather than central control, avoid major pushback from the public?
  • How will regional data obtained through interoperable information exchange feed in to this national data service and be used for service planning, payments, analytics and research?
  • In what ways can patients play an active role in generating and using data, to control how health and care providers use their data?
  • How does the proposed data collection model align with a growing focus on developing shared care records across STP footprints?
  • How can we learn from the mistakes of the care.data scheme and re-build patient trust in nationally performed analytics?

Putting big data to use in advancing A&E efficiency and realising cost savings
Despite only being in the early stages of digital transformation, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh (WWL) NHS Foundation Trust is one of the latest healthcare organisations to put big data into use for front-line clinicians and patients, whilst also ensuring they hit the government’s A&E targets in 2016. This case study will therefore explore how using big data analytics software to identify patterns in raw data allowed the Trust to create an A&E application that provides visual information on staffing levels and patient flow. It will also evidence the benefits including greater efficiency, savings of nearly £1m in costs, increased quality of patient care and an overall reduction in A&E waiting times by 30 minutes.
