IMPROVING OUTCOMES AND
SUPPORTING INNOVATION
Dr Margaret Whoriskey
Director, Joint Improvement Partnership Board
A Scottish Approach to Public
Service Reform
> Prevention – decisive shift: Reduce future demand by
preventing problems arising or dealing with them early on.
> Partnership – Bringing public, third and private sector
partners together with communities to deliver shared
outcomes that really matter to people.
> People – We need to unlock the full creativity and potential
of people at all levels of public service, empowering them
to work together in innovative ways. We need to help
create ways for people and communities to co-produce
services around their skills and networks.
> Performance – To demonstrate a sharp focus on
continuous improvement of the national outcomes.
Our 2020 Vision…
By 2020 everyone is able to live longer
healthier lives at home, or in a homely
setting.
Health & Social Care Integration
Underpinned by Legislation:
• nationally agreed outcomes;
1. Healthier
2. Independent Living
3. Positive experiences and outcomes
4. Carers are supported
5. Services are safe
6. Engaged workforce
Principals/Defining Outcome Focused Approach
• Understand outcomes as the
impact or end result of support
and/or services on a person’s life:
• BUT start by defining
expectations and outcomes with
the person
• Focus on strengths and capacities
more than deficits
• Identify the person’s role as well
as other people in their life and
services
• Outcomes can be measured both
for the individual and for the
service as a whole
• Believing that the participation of
the person is core to practice
What do we mean by outcomes?
The “So what?” question – if we have provided support or
service to someone, what did that achieve? Did the person
benefit and how do they see it?
This requires both the services, and the person themself to think
through together what matters and how it can be best
achieved.
The big challenge is to develop what we often do well at the
individual level to be the basis of our whole organisational
approach – keeping people and what they want at the heart
of everything we do. We refer to this as a personal outcomes
approach.

A useful enabler…
In five years to 31/3/2012, 325 users of the Renfrewshire Care 24 telecare
service had dementia; over 30% of all users. The Service has provided a
range of equipment including door contacts, pressure mats and bed
monitors, operates a Responder service in the event of an alarm being
triggered and has a specific dementia pathway; all with the aim of keeping
these vulnerable people safely at home.
The Renfrewshire Telecare service estimated 114
hospital and 88 care home admissions were
avoided by this group because of telecare.
