Enabling providers to develop new care models
Commissioners will play an important role in empowering providers to work together to establish the collaborations that may evolve to become the accountable care systems of the future. As delegates at a recent PCC event on contracting for new care models heard, commissioners need to work with providers, particularly GPs, to enable them to choose the contractual and organisational forms that are right for them as well as for the local population. Our advisers are working with CCGs not only to help them to understand the different options in the new ACO contract but on the detailed financing issues likely to impact local decisions. For example we worked with one CCG to identify GP practice income and expenditure streams. This will help the CCG establish what funding is available to establish a salary range for GPs who opt to move from GMS/PMS contracts to salaried working for the planned multispecialty community provider (MCP).
