Dear Mr James

 

FOI_16_82

Thank you for your recent request for information under the Freedom of
Information Act.  Please see our responses highlighted below;

 

1)            Is the continuing healthcare and funded nursing care process
managed in-house, or is part or all of the process outsourced to a 3rd
party (CSU, Council, Independent provider etc.). If outsourced, please
state the name of the company and the services outsourced (all CHC,
assessment, brokerage, invoice validation etc.)

 

The CHC process is managed In House

 

2)            Please provide the name and contact details of the
individual responsible for continuing healthcare at the CCG. Please email
[1][email address]

 

3)            How many people are involved with the continuing healthcare
process internally? Approximately 8

 

4)            Does the CCG or any contracted provider managing CHC have a
connection to the Exeter System and regularly check this? If not how does
the CCG become aware of patient deaths? The CCG has access to the NHS
Portal which is regularly checked on an individual basis

 

5)            Does the CCG use any third party tech solutions to record
patient information relating to CHC (Broadcare, Swift, Caretrack, QA Plus
etc.)? If not how is this recorded?
Not at the present moment, however we are in the process of implementing
Broadcare. Currently all managed through a number of spreadsheets.

 

6)            Does the CCG use any third party tech solutions to record
financial information (Broadcare, Caretrack, QA Plus etc.)? If not how are
invoices validated against care package details?

 

As 5 above.

 

7)            Does the CCG contract care packages from a framework with
agreed rates? If so what percentage of contracts are secured on and off
framework? No

 

There is a separate Contract in place for Complex Care packages that is
related to a single supplier. However, they do not have exclusivity of
provision and also provide care under other arrangements than complex.
Consequently, the costs are not analysed between 'contracted' and spot
purchase.

 

8)            Please provide the average no. of patients receiving CHC and
FNC funding in the last financial year, and a breakdown for each category:

a.            CHC Patients

537

 

b.            FNC Patients

283

 

9)            Please provide the total number of suppliers that the CCGs
uses for CHC & FNC, split by:

a.            Residential Homes

Not analysed this way (Sophia may be able to provide a simple list of
those used and declare it as "not necessarily comprehensive"?) (Sue?)

 

b.            Nursing Homes

as above

 

c.            Homecare Agencies

as above

 

d.            Other (please specify)

as above

 

10)         Please state the average number of care packages in the last
financial year, split by:

a.            Residential Homes

Data not currently analysed in this way

 

b.            Nursing Homes

Data not currently analysed in this way

 

c.            Homecare Agencies

Data not currently analysed in this way

 

d.            Other (please specify)

Data not currently analysed in this way

 

I trust this fulfils your requirements.

 

Regards

 

Sarah
