Specialist Advice

We work with healthcare providers, commissioners and patients who wish to define outcomes which matter to people, and organise processes of care around clearly defined outcomes. We have the capability to advise on all steps of implementing an outcomes-based approach:
  • Co-define outcomes that matter to people through workshops with stakeholders representing all parts of the care cycle, including patients and their advocates
  • Determine appropriate measures for outcomes
  • Evaluate contracting options for whole pathway outcomes measurement across multiple providers
  • Support outcomes-driven service redesign
We firmly believe that outcomes-based approaches offer the only sustainable future in healthcare. For that reason we assist organisations with “upstream readiness” in terms of winning hearts and minds through teaching, supporting funding applications and organisational development to help develop and implement outcomes at a population level. Our approach often begins with a series of outcomes-based educational sessions. These sessions are vital to introducing clients to the real meaning of “value” in healthcare and what implementation of an outcomes based approach looks like in practice. We run masterclasses and workshops for commissioners, healthcare providers, clinicians or anyone who has an interest in implementing outcomes and value-based approached to healthcare.

Outcomes Specifications

At OBH, our expertise lies in Outcomes Data. We work closely with health economies to measure outcomes that matter to people through:
  • Defining comprehensive technical specifications and data descriptions using multiple data sources such as primary care data, HES, SUS, and publicly available datasets.
  • Enabling measurement of outcomes for specific populations across care pathways that span multiple providers
  • Resulting in standard Outcomes Frameworks for your population.
