— Create an environment which enables services to align themselves to reduce duplication of delivery and consistency of governance approaches.
— Creates a better environment to align outcome indicators and reduce perverse incentives in the urgent care system for individual providers.
— Give a single lead accountable provider (with its subcontractors) the ability to construct an overall pathway of care and incentives that provide the commissioner with the outcomes that they want.
— Encourage collaboration in the urgent care landscape with the right levers and incentives in place. Providers can directly work together, supported by the contracts between them, to ensure the pathway is as efficient and effective as possible. The prime contractor model is sufficiently flexible to accommodate a range of payment mechanisms and incentives.
— Meet the economic imperative to deliver significantly better health care outcomes for the same resource.
— Allow commissioners to concentrate on outcome measures and not micro manage provider services.
— Allow a more flexible approach to payment mechanisms.
