In this latest in a series of short video interviews on payment by results, Frank Curran, owner of SP Solutions and PbR expert, says PbR can be done well – or badly .

 

Frank’s four key criteria for a successful PbR scheme are:

  1. A focus on the primary desired outcome.
  2. Providers must be rewarded for taking the risk that PbR entails.
  3. Providers must have say over how the service is operated and be encouraged to innovate & experiment.
  4. Don’t use intermediate targets.

Do you agree?

Can payment by results transfer risk?

It is not possible to transfer all risk, be that risk reputational, practical or financial. Commissioners retain their responsibility for local citizens receiving a good quality and effective service.

Payment by Results
Can payment by results improve outcomes?

The idea is that by commissioning outcomes rather than outputs, commissioners allow provider to work in any way they see fit, safe in the knowledge that if the outcomes are not achieved, they do not have to make payment. But do PbR schemes achieve better outcomes?
