The indicators aim to provide clear, comparative information for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) about the quality of health services commissioned by CCGs and, as far as possible, the associated health outcomes.
Update March 2019:
There is an ongoing review by NHS Digital of emergency readmissions indicators across the frameworks, many of which have not been published since 2014. Phase one of this review involved the publication of two indicators on March 21 2019; CCG Outcomes Indicator Set indicator 3.2 and NHS Outcomes Framework indicator 3b – Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from hospital. This will be followed by the publication of Compendium emergency readmissions indicators in April / May 2019.
Phase two of the review will involve a full review of the indicator to address known issues and refine the methodology, this will include input from external parties.
New data periods have been added for the following existing indicators:
- 1.2 Under 75 mortality from cardiovascular disease
- 1.6 Under 75 mortality from respiratory disease
- 1.7 Under 75 mortality from liver disease
- 1.8 Emergency admissions for alcohol related liver disease
