Specialised Services Monitor is a
monthly analytics and reporting service from CHKS. This provides
CCGs with a profile of the flow of their patients into NHSE
commissioned specialised services during the financial year.
Why is this useful?
- Enables commissioners to track the activity commissioned on
their behalf by the NHSE during the financial year in order to
assess if this is in line with their top sliced apportionment.
- The patient tracking helps CCGs to ensure activity is billed
correctly by their acute providers to avoid double payment.
Noncompliant pathway referral patterns can also be highlighted so
they can address these with their GP practices in order to improve
- The ongoing reporting also provides CCGs with evidence to
support negotiations with the NHSE over future annual spending
