Creating foundations for digital health

Leading commissioners towards international commissioning excellence

The challenge

Health commissioners strive to deliver value-based healthcare for the populations they serve​

They aim to reshape health systems to focus on improving population health by focusing on the quadruple aims of healthcare:​


Improving population health outcomes​


Improving the individual experience of care​​


Improving the joy and meaning health workers find from their work​


Reducing the per capita cost of healthcare​

Healthcare commissioning is how health systems reshape healthcare to improve population outcomes within available resources​​

Whilst the concept is simple, the application is not. ​

Commissioning knits together a sophisticated range of techniques that unite diverse types of health practitioners around a common purpose of improving population outcomes. This includes bringing together epidemiologists, data analysts, consumers, front-line clinicians, as well as system leaders, experts in co-design, procurement and evaluation.​

Health commissioners understand that achieving international commissioning excellence takes many years and they also recognise that their commissioning capabilities are maturing as staff gain experience through the practical application of commissioning and change management techniques.​

The outcomes

Our Commissioning Maturity Assessment guides commissioners on the journey towards international commissioning excellence​

We systematically review commissioner strengths and development areas against internationally recognised domains of commissioning excellence.​

Our deep-dive review of commissioner capabilities providers a clear maturity assessment for your organisation:​

 ​By listening to your staff and bringing our practical commissioning insights from across the globe, we produce a multi-year commissioning capability roadmap for your organisation.​

For example, we are delighted to have supported The PHN on their journey towards commissioning excellence over the past 5 years, which includes having run our Commissioning Maturity Assessment in both 2017 and 2020, each time providing practical commissioning improvement roadmaps.​
