The Walton Center’s decision came after an evaluation of all four suppliers on the NHSE CUR Framework. Deciding to go with the Oak Group based on the clinical validity of their CUR tool having ranked 1st based on combined quality & value scores on the NHS England CUR framework.
The MCAP tool identifies opportunities for whole system patient flow improvements and integration, provides decision makers with the necessary evidence and advanced patient flow analytics in real-time to support improvements in admission reduction, MDT discharge and system integration. In 2015 NHS England introduced a substantial Commissioning for Quality and Innovation scheme (CQUIN) to support providers in adopting clinical utilisation review technology for specialised admitted patient care and critical care in 2015/16.
The goal of the Clinical utilisation review CQUIN is to improve patient flow, enhance quality and ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate clinical settings, freeing up staff time and hospital resources. The Oak Group are the first supplier to be chosen off the NHS England CUR framework.
“We welcome The Walton Center to our ever growing client community and really look forward to supporting them in their deployment of CUR to reduce inappropriate admissions and length of stay. This is an exciting time for the Oak Group and CUR development in the UK” said Alistair Frost, CEO, The Oak Group.
