The impact of de-hosting the payment system for SRH/integrated services needs to be better understood by commissioners. Shadow data from April 2011 will allow a comprehensive review of activity based on patient residence to be completed. A first cut analysis of de-hosting impact is available at www.pathwayanalytics.com/cms/lshp/impactanalysis. From April 2011 data submitted to the Tariff Grouper will be available to Commissioners for impact analysis.
Future data will be validated via audit and this requirement could be stipulated in contracts.
