Best initiative to reduce variation in diabetes care

Winner

(Data)sets, Drugs and Rock’n’Roll improve Camden diabetes care!

by Haverstock Healthcare Camden GP Federation

This initiative is a single integrated diabetes team across primary, community and hospital diabetes services, employed by different providers, but delivering improved patient and productivity outcomes. Camden CCG invested in value-based commissioning with one pooled programme budget across all sectors: the team is paid from a common budget, allowing savings in high cost areas such as amputations to be reinvested in prevention by having more podiatrists and better-trained staff doing diabetes foot checks. Patients decided the priorities, such as education so they could self-care, and joined-up services supported by IT. Data analytics is used to drive performance across all levels of the health economy, with demonstrable benefits in outcomes and quality of care, including a reduction in deaths due to improvements in elderly care.

Judges comment:

"Judges thought this initiative a “breath of fresh air”. It is a comprehensive and outstanding project established in a complicated area. It is innovative, patient-led and the team achieved amazing outcomes."
