LTC year of care funding model
19 April 2012
Early implementers are being invited to apply to test a potential new way of funding long term conditions (LTC) care. The LTC year of care funding model will be tested by six early implementer sites and prescribes a set approach for the purpose of national evaluation.
The model is described in quality, innovation, productivity and prevention (QIPP) LTC. DoH has published a report titled QIPP long term conditions year of care funding model: early implementers today along side an application form and supporting guidance for those interested in becoming early implementers.
QIPP LTC is aimed at health and social care commissioners and providers who are implementing integrated LTC care services to improve outcomes and people’s experience. The model, which is is not mandated, has been developed using evidence and best practice and will be formally tested by the early implementer sites. The model will evolve over time with this testing phase informing future developments.
The deadline for applications is Friday 25 May 2012.
