Monitoring and evaluation

Analysis of health service use, combined with outcomes and experience data, will guide development of new care pathways and demonstrate whether improvements in the system are delivering greater value.

Data and information from Leading Better Value Care initiatives will help to inform how care is delivered at an individual, service and system level.

A rigorous measurement and evaluation process is applied to each of the Leading Better Value Care clinical initiatives. This includes economic analysis, monitoring reports and formative and summative evaluations for each initiative.

Patient reported measures (PRMs) are also collected for a direct account of a patient's personal experiences and progress towards their desired health outcomes.

The Register of Outcomes, Value and Experience (ROVE) is a virtual registry that joins Leading Better Value Care administrative, clinical and patient reported measures data in one place. ROVE supports the aim of collecting data once and using it for multiple purposes.
