The usage guide for each of the four contract tracking datasets contains instructions for suppliers regarding their inventory and presentation. These four data sets should form the basis on which all Commissioners (NHS England and GCC) will receive, from April 2021, their regular monitoring of supplier contracts. Both documents support the consolidation of the Occupational Medicine Agenda. Following a participation operation in January 2018, NHS England proposes to use a standard format for the activity and financial report (known as the Contract Monitoring Report aggregates) and to provide data flow support for all acute and mental health services ordered as part of the detailed version of the contract. These proposals are detailed in the introduction of proposals for aggregate tracking reports and in the document below on support for data flows, and we welcome the comments on them. The introduction of a series of four information standards for contract tracking: Contract Monitoring (ACM), Patient Level Contract Monitoring (PLCM), Drugs Patient Level Contract Monitoring (DrPLCM) and Devices Patient Level Contract Monitoring (DePLCM) are the file formats where providers must report their public health activities on behalf of NHS England and in 2020/21. The commissioning of occupational health services will assist commissioning teams in providing services to multidisciplinary occupational medicine providers, who offer a number of skills and expertise. Their occupational health service must ensure that NHS organizations are aware of what they can expect from their OH service. In addition, it provides instructions on how to track this service and how to deal with the information, to ensure that the service provides employees with the best support. The NHS-Standard contract is mandated by NHS England for use by commissioners for all health care contracts other than primary care. The Level Contract Monitoring Data Set is a patient-level report that contains PATIENT-level IDENTIFIANTS. Its objective is to support and provide in detail the information contained in the Aggregate Contract Monitoring Data Set (ACM).
It contains details of clinical activities at the patient level that are not found in standard commissioning data streams (CDSs) that are transmitted to the secondary use service. NHS Employers has published two guidelines (updates 2013), Commissioning OH Services and Your Occupational Health Service, to assist occupational medicine executives, staff heads and staff managers in the commissioning of OH services and to understand what the OH services ordered should provide to their organization. The eContract system hosts contracts in a complete and short form and allows the contract to be adapted to the services provided, so that only the corresponding conditions and service plans are displayed.
