Resources and case studies

A number of teams from across our partnership are using Value Based Healthcare methodology to improve the care they provide to our patients and service users.

Measuring outcomes that matter to patients and carers

  • COPD – we implemented integrated practice units to improve value in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our intervention resulted in a 50% increase in pulmonary rehabilitation referrals, 34% reduction in COPD admissions, and a 17% reduction in length of stay
  • Parkinson’s disease – we enhanced clinical management of non-motor symptom burden in Parkinson’s Disease. Our intervention is now used worldwide for cutting-edge clinical trials and patients feel empowered to report non-motor symptoms and receive appropriate treatment
  • Palliative care – we measured what outcomes mattered most to patients. Our Palliative Care Outcome Scale is now used internationally and has been adopted as routine in nine hospitals and community palliative care services across south London
  • Catheter care – we improved catheter care to help people lead more independent lives and reduce hospital admissions. Our intervention has resulted in a 30% reduction in catheter-associated urinary tract infections in our hospitals
