Overview

Introduction

The Patient Level Information Costing System Data Set - Reconciliation is used to help establish the Patient Level Information Costing quantum from the final audited accounts, and outline material differences between ACTIVITY data sets and Patient Level Information Costing totals and is an integral part of the Patient Level Information Costing submission process.

All designated NHS Health Care Providers, NHS Trusts, Mental Health Services, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Services and Ambulance Services are required to submit Patient Level Information Costing data.

The Patient Level Information Costing System Data Set - Reconciliation is used to:

  • inform new methods of pricing NHS SERVICES

  • inform new approaches and other changes to the design of the currencies used to price NHS SERVICES

  • contribute to NHS England's and NHS Improvement's strategic objective of a single national cost collection

  • inform the relationship between Health Care Provider characteristics and cost

  • help NHS Trusts to maximise use of their resources and improve efficiencies, as required by the provider licence

  • identify the relationship between PATIENT characteristics and cost

  • support an approach to benchmarking for regulatory purposes.
