17 Information on how quality and outcomes are already being linked to payment is also available in the local payment example on outcomes-based payment for mental healthcare 18 and the technical guidance document on Linking quality and outcome measures to payment for mental health. 19 2.7 Data monitoring and feedback It is important that the payment approach continues to be informed by robust, timely data. This means that providers and commissioners must monitor actual activity against planned activity, the distribution of service users across the currencies, and actual against anticipated episode duration. The outcomes framework will become an increasingly important part of the payment system, and all agreed local metrics will need to be monitored. Much of the data required is included in NHS Digit al’s Mental Health Services Dataset. It is also important that investment is made in information systems locally. This will enable information to be fed back to clinicians in near real time and shared with patients. Being able to monitor the impacts of interventions will lead to informed decisions about the types of care that are offered. 15 mendments_to_Contracts_-_Oct_16.pdf 16 17 It may be appropriate to consult/seek wider engagement on such local metrics, and commissioners/providers will need to consider whether such consultation/engagement is required. 18 - mental-healthcare 19

18 3. Next steps It is important that all providers and commissioners develop transparent and evidence-based payment approaches that meet the needs and outcomes of their local population. Providers and commissioners also need to put in place the building blocks for payment development. This includes robust data collection and use, transparent governance arrangements, collaborative local relationships and local development, and use of outcomes measures and currencies. 20 They must also meet access and waiting-time standards, and ensure local alignment with the objectives in the 5YFV for mental health. The guidance in this document offers providers and commissioners a pragmatic approach to developing an episodic payment approach for mental health. The cited data resources are examples only. Providers and commissioners should use them as a starting point and apply them and similar tools to inform local analysis and payment development. Providers and commissioners are responsible for leading local payment development for mental health. The sector should utilise local peer-to-peer networks, which may include other providers, commissioners, experts-by-experience, charities, local authorities and wider communities. These networks can help solve local challenges, and inform well-developed and robust payment approaches for mental health.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
