Improving outcomes and supporting innovation


Dr Margaret Whoriskey

Director, Joint Improvement Partnership Board

A scottish approach to public service reform

A Scottish Approach to Public Service Reform

  • Prevention – decisive shift: Reduce future demand by preventing problems arising or dealing with them early on.

  • Partnership – Bringing public, third and private sector partners together with communities to deliver shared outcomes that really matter to people.

  • People – We need to unlock the full creativity and potential of people at all levels of public service, empowering them to work together in innovative ways. We need to help create ways for people and communities to co-produce services around their skills and networks.

  • Performance – To demonstrate a sharp focus on continuous improvement of the national outcomes.

Our 2020 vision

Our 2020 Vision…

By 2020 everyone is able to live longer healthier lives at home, or in a homely setting.

Health social care integration

Health & Social Care Integration

  • Underpinned by Legislation:

    • nationally agreed outcomes;

    • Healthier

    • Independent Living

    • Positive experiences and outcomes

    • Carers are supported

    • Services are safe

    • Engaged workforce

    • Effective resource use

Principals defining outcome focused approach

Principals/Defining Outcome Focused Approach

Understand outcomes as the impact or end result of support and/or services on a person’s life:

BUT start by defining expectations and outcomes with the person

Focus on strengths and capacities more than deficits

Identify the person’s role as well as other people in their life and services

Outcomes can be measured both for the individual and for the service as a whole

Believing that the participation of the person is core to practice

What do we mean by outcomes

What do we mean by outcomes?

The “So what?” question – if we have provided support or service to someone, what did that achieve? Did the person benefit and how do they see it?

This requires both the services, and the person themself to think through together what matters and how it can be best achieved.

The big challenge is to develop what we often do well at the individual level to be the basis of our whole organisational approach – keeping people and what they want at the heart of everything we do. We refer to this as a personal outcomes approach.

    Improving outcomes and supporting innovation

    In five years to 31/3/2012, 325 users of the Renfrewshire Care 24 telecare service had dementia; over 30% of all users. The Service has provided a range of equipment including door contacts, pressure mats and bed monitors, operates a Responder service in the event of an alarm being triggered and has a specific dementia pathway; all with the aim of keeping these vulnerable people safely at home.

    Improving outcomes and supporting innovation

    The Renfrewshire Telecare service estimated 114 hospital and 88 care home admissions were avoided by this group because of telecare.
