BEST PRACTICE TARIFF CODE

A code representing a national price for ACTIVITY that is designed to incentivise quality and cost-effective care.

Description

A code representing a national price for ACTIVITY  that is designed to incentivise quality and cost-effective care.

The aim of a BEST PRACTICE TARIFF CODE  is to reduce unexplained variation in clinical quality and spread best practice.

BEST PRACTICE TARIFF CODES  may introduce an alternative currency to a Healthcare Resource Group, including a description of ACTIVITIES that more closely corresponds to the delivery of outcomes for a PATIENT.

An incentive to move from usual care to best practice is created by creating a price differential between agreed best practice, which attracts the BEST PRACTICE TARIFF CODE, and usual care, thereby universalising best practice.
