Right Care is an NHS organisation, sponsored by NHS England and Public Health England, with the aim of increasing value for patients and commissioners. Their briefing for the Health Finance Managers Association (HFMA) describes the “Right Care Approach” to reform, transforming the right services to deliver improvements in care for patients while saving money.
The underlying principles of the Right Care approach are: searching for opportunities to improve, use of research and evidence to determine the need for change to deliver improvements, and adopting systematic business processes to drive delivery. Programme budgeting, and analysis of variations in spend / outcomes are used to identify priorities for improvement.
