PLICS (Patient Level Information and Costing Systems) Pilot Collection
Background to the collection
NHS Improvement's Costing Transformation Programme (CTP) was established to implement Patient Level Information and Costing Systems (PLICS) across Acute, Mental Health, Ambulance and Community providers.
The programme entails:
- Introducing and implementing new standards for patient level costing
- Developing and implementing one single national cost collection to replace current multiple collections
- Establishing the minimum required standards for costing software and promoting its adoption
- Driving and encouraging sector support to adopt Patient Level Costing methodology and technology
It comprises data from six pilot Trusts that have been using PLIC Systems for several years.
The data will enable the testing and review of draft new standards that are being developed by NHS Improvement in relation to patient level costing.
Form of the collection
The submissions will be sent into NHS Digital in XML format.
Collections are scheduled to take place from 19 September to 30 September 2016.
(In the event of a technical issue being identified which requires the end date to be extended slightly, the supporting Trusts will be contacted to agree a contingency collection date in October 2016).
