This tariff takes into account the complexity of the patient's healthcare needs and the tariff received by the provider is adjusted to reflect the nationally determined market forces factor (MFF). This is unique to each provider and reflects the fact that it is more expensive to provide services in some parts of the country than in others. There may also be other adjustments to the tariff for long or short stays, for specialised services, or to support other PbR policy changes.
PbR data for acute services is sourced from the Commissioning Data Sets (CDS), which are held within Secondary Uses Service (SUS) database - the same source as used for HES data. Like HES, PbR contains admitted patient care, outpatient and A and E datasets.
