CCG outcomes tools

The CCG outcomes tool and explorer which provide interactive access to key data for CCGs have been updated and the latest versions can be found below.

The main changes in the November 2013 update are:

Functionality – the ONS cluster groups as comparators have been removed in this release, pending the inclusion of specifically developed CCG clusters in the next update.

Data – where possible, more timely information has been provided for data and new data has been added for the following indicators:

  • Quality outcome framework prevalence.
  • Potential years of life lost amenable to healthcare for males and females.
  • Under 75 mortality rate from cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease and cancer.
  • Case-mix adjusted health gain following hip and knee replacement, and groin hernia surgery.

The Local Authority packs have been revised and updated. Originally published in December 2012 as a set of information packs for CCGs and Local Authorities they set out key data to inform the local position on outcomes. The Local Authority packs present high-level comparative information on the NHS, the Adult Social Care and the Public Health outcomes frameworks. The 2012 Local Authority and CCG packs are still available to view as individual pdf documents.

Access the Tools

There are two views of the data:

  • The CCG outcomes tool allows users to view maps, charts and tables of individual outcome indicators across CCGs, and to view a spine chart of all the outcomes for one or more CCGs.
  • The CCG outcomes explorer allows the user to explore the relationships between two outcomes or between demographic information and outcomes.

Each view is available using Flash and HTML5. The flash version offers slightly greater functionality and will work on older browsers, but requires a Flash plugin to be installed and is not supported by devices such as Apple iPads. The HTML5 version works across most devices with newer browsers, including many mobile devices.

A help file is included within each version.

We aim to update these tools following releases of future data at CCG level. The expected release schedule is published by the HSCIC: see CCG Outcomes Indicator Set.

In the longer term the functionality in these tools may be absorbed by the Integrated Intelligence Tool.
