‘Money and the Outcomes’ – Dr Diane Bell Webinar

‘Money and the Outcomes’ – Dr Diane Bell Webinar

Free CCG Invitation to COBIC Club Webinar – Dr Diane Bell, ‘The Money and the Outcomes’
When: Friday 25th July, 1.00-2.00pm
Registration: Open to all Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs) – email carol-ann.saul@cobic.co.uk

Dr Diane Bell, Director of Strategy and System Redesign at Bedfordshire CCG, will be sharing insights on two important elements of capitated outcomes based commissioning (COBIC) – ‘The Money and Outcomes’ – drawing on the latest from the Bedfordshire MSK programme.

Diane led on Bedfordshire CCG’s capitated outcomes based commissioning approach for planned musculoskeletal care (MSK). This ambitious and transformation programme is changing how the CCG spend around £25 million per year on MSK for adults. Bedfordshire was one of the first CCGs to adopt this new approach, which speaks directly with service users, carers, about what outcomes they want, and creates the circumstances where providers can innovate and profit from success – as long as they manage costs and deliver the outcomes that matter.

To register for the webinar to hear, and have the opportunity to ask questions on themes including:

  • Relationship between scope of a COBIC and the development of its associated programme budget
  • Financial risk: calculating, transferring, monitoring
  • Financial assumptions
  • What is an outcome? And how does one develop them?
  • Linking outcome measures with financial incentives
  • Measuring and monitoring outcomes

To sign-up to the webinar, please email Carol-ann.saul@cobic.co.uk by 22nd July.


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.
