NHS RightCare data and evidence provides a set of resource to support systems to concentrate their improvement efforts where there is greatest opportunity to address variation and improve population health.

Data packs

NHS RightCare data packs are produced at system level. As many health conditions are linked to demographic factors such as deprivation and age, they compare systems to their closest demographically similar geographies. This information offers a triangulation of nationally-held data intended to help local systems ensure their plans focus on opportunities which have the potential to provide the greatest improvements.

NHS RightCare Scenario

Scenarios present a patient’s perspective of a sub-optimal and an optimal care journey. They aim to help commissioners and providers understand the implications – both in terms of quality of life and costs – of shifting the care pathway for a number of different conditions.

Case studies

Case studies are a way of sharing best practice through local examples of commissioning innovations which show the philosophy behind NHS RightCare or showcases the tools available through the programme.
