COBIC events at Foundation Trust Network Conference

COBIC events at Foundation Trust Network Conference

COBIC’s senior team is attending the FTN Conference in Liverpool this month, and we would like to invite leaders from provider organisations to two events taking place on 19th November:

A fringe breakfast briefing from COBIC CEO Dr Nicholas Hicks, The Five Year Forward View and what it means for providers and contracting, from 7.30-8.30am in the bar area of the Jury’s Inn Hotel, Liverpool

A conference strand session, Provider led contracting and risk-sharing, with director Dr Diane Bell at 11.50-13.00 at the convention centre

The Five Year Forward View has asked all health communities to consider radical new care delivery options over the next few years. At COBIC we strongly believe that re-aligning incentives through multi-year Capitated Outcomes-Based Incentivised Contracts (COBICs) helps create the conditions which support provider innovation and make it easier to deliver integrated services of the sort set out in the Five Year Forward View and elsewhere.

At COBIC we are already supporting commissioners in developing and letting capitated outcomes-based contracts e.g. in Bedfordshire, Croydon, Herefordshire, Milton Keynes, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Sheffield and South West London. These contracts change the business model for health and make new ‘asks’ of providers – for example expecting them to be able to coordinate the care of individuals across settings, within the context of population health management. Just as important is our work with providers, to translate outcomes-based specifications and help you acquire the skills and capabilities you need to take full advantage of the opportunities these contracts create.

COBIC – Capitated Outcome-Based Incentivised Commissioning – is a common sense approach to securing both value for money and better outcomes for patients. As a contracting approach, COBIC releases commissioning and providing organisations to get the best out of their responsibilities handed to them from the NHS reforms.
