  4. 4. 4Specialised ServicesCommissioning InnovationFund (SSCIF)
  5. 5. SSCIFFor innovations:Which are new to NHS specialised services or applied in a way that is newto NHS specialised servicesThat have shown promise of delivering an improvement in the quality orcost and affordability of service deliveryWhich have a clearly defined value proposition and, if a service or product,have reached entry levels of safety ready for evaluation in clinical practice.SSCIF Evaluation ProjectsWill be rapid, typically ranging from six to 18 monthsCan involve collaboration between commissioners, clinicians, patients,innovators and the commercial sector5
  6. 6. SSCIF – Prime Objective• To generate missing data and information on the impact of the innovation on: Quality, Cost and affordability and NHS activity levels…which can be used to inform commissioning policy• By rapidly evaluation in a clinical, healthcare service setting, innovativemodels of care, pathways, approaches, devices, technologies, products andmedicines with the potential to deliver high impact change for NHSspecialised services6

  9. 9. SSCIF - Benefits• Creation of an evidence base for use in national commissioning decisionswhich will result in rapid, widespread adoption of proven innovations in theNHS.• Earlier access to innovative care for patients.• Increased value for money to the NHS.• Increase knowledge of offer and impact of individual innovations/products9
  10. 10. ProcessdecisionSimple on-line Step 1: Self-AssessmentStep 3: Detailed Submission (Table top expert reviewStep 2: Qualifying Submission Form (CRG Chair reviews)
  11. 11. Process• Open to healthcare staff, manufacturers, clinicians, researchers, patientgroups and commissioners.• Submissions can be made anyone at Steps 1 and 2, but by Step 3, apractising Lead Healthcare Practitioner employed by a healthcareorganisation that supports the generation of wealth in the UK will need tosponsor and agree to lead the project.• Manufacturers and others can form alliances with health staff to do this.Medical Directors of the Healthcare Lead’s organisation will need to endorsethe submission.
  12. 12. Funded Projects - documents and requirementsdecisionFunded SSCIF Evaluation Projects will have a Service Level Agreementwith a contract schedule taken from the Step 3: Detailed SubmissionForm detailing the key activities, key milestones, intended outcomes andkey performance indicators.Lead Applicants will be provided with sample templates for: A project initiation document A protocol for local ethical approval Informed Consent and patient participation Data set for Patient Information Leaflets Headings for final report including final products, factors for successetc.
  13. 13. SSCIF Next Steps
  14. 14. Innovation Health and Wealth• UK Plan for Growth March 2011– Challenged NHS CE to review adoption and diffusion ofinnovation• Prompted the NHS CE Review– Asked major stakeholders what might be done toaccelerate the spread of innovations in the NHS– Consultation across NHS, Government, Industry,Academia and Patient Groups– 310 responses received; 28% from industry (Incl Med Tech)– 17% of respondents identified the need for innovationfunds (including a specific fund for Specialised Services)• Resulted in IHW (Dec 2011)– 31 Actions to drive the adoption and diffusion of innovation
  15. 15. Reason for the SSCIF• Many innovations with promise available to the NHS– But often languishing at a local/regional level– No widespread uptake due to lack of commissioningevidence• Evidence Generation in Specialised Services oftendifficult– Low volume– Hard to achieve levels of evidence similar to thosegenerated by RCTs– Even data (incl. RCTs) sufficient for MA are often notenough to convince commissioners of the innovation’svalue in clinical practice
  16. 16. Ethos of the SSCIF• Aid accelerated adoption and diffusion of transformationalinnovations– Generate evidence on the value of promising innovationsthat are available for use in the NHS– To enable evidence based commissioning decisions to be made– Make use of New Structure– National commissioning decisions for specialised services– Set a paradigm for adoption and diffusion of innovation in aclinically led fashion
  17. 17. Another Hurdle?• No!!• In the past– Drugs not considered by NICE or not recommended due tolack of evidence– Commissioning considered independently by 10 SCGs– Each following a different process (rarely evidence generating)– Potential for 10 different decisions• Now– 1 National decision on specialised services commissioning– Must be based on robust evidence– How can this be obtained if not a NICE topic or not recommendeddue to lack of evidence• The SSCIF is a real opportunity
  18. 18. Silo Busting• SSCIF Evaluation Projects will:– Look at complete patient pathway, taking into account:– Impact of the innovation on outcomes; and– Cost and efficiency; and– Activity levelsacross all parts of the pathway– Consider:– Societal Impacts– Gaps in service provision (degree of unmet need)– Generate evidence to fill data gaps that are preventingcommissioning– Data gaps on effectiveness and costs in the NHS
  19. 19. Real Opportunity for Partnership• The SSCIF aims to generate evidence that is:– Is needed by NHS England for national commissioning decisionsin the new structure– Could benefit the manufacturer once generated• Therefore generation of evidence should be funded jointly– NHS England has set up a fund (SSCIF) to generate theinformation it needs for all innovations– Manufacturers should not rely wholly on NHS funding to generatedata on their products (State Aid)– So for commercial applications to the SSCIF, the evaluationprojects will need to be jointly funded by the applicant and by theSSCIF
  20. 20. Unrivalled potential• A successful evaluation project will result in– National Commissioning Policy– potentially a National commissioning decision.– This is unlike anything seen before in specialised services• The partnership ethos will extend to commissioningarrangements post SSCIF evaluation– Exclusivity terms– Discounted purchase price
