Development of an economic framework to articulate the cost of care pathways in multiple settings for End of Life Care patients.

Commissioners required evidence that transfer of patients with End of Life Care (EoLC) needs to a community setting was cost neutral across the healthcare system for three London boroughs, while maintaining quality of care delivery.  Pathway Analytics worked with the Modernisation Initiative (MI) to develop an evidence-based As Is Economic Model which enabled commissioners to understand better the patient population across diagnosis spectrums in multiple settings vs. commissioning costs (top-down) and 'true' costs (bottom-up). This work provided a key input into the MI's strategic redesign recommendations and formed the basis for costing up future (To Be) delivery models.
