Since 2006 the Foundation Trust Network Benchmarking programme has facilitated significant cost savings, quality improvements and efficiency gains for our members. Run in partnership with McKinsey & Co, the programme provides a holistic and balanced assessment of service improvement opportunities, through a detailed analysis of trusts’ performance in:
- Quality (including clinical outcomes, patient safety and experience)
- Cost effectiveness (including service provision costs, income and productivity)
- Operational management (including structure of services, patient flow and workforce)
By studying services in detail and providing comparisons with peers, the FTN Benchmarking programme provides an objective viewpoint on current service efficiency, illuminates areas of improvement, and acts as a catalyst for taking practical and measurable steps to improve services.
