Benchmark how many procedures are carried out in outpatient setting
For some procedures, the debate has moved beyond shifting from inpatient to day case but from day case to outpatients and removing this activity from theatres altogether e.g. hysteroscopy in gynae, minor skin procedures etc. Is there a basket of such procedures and could benchmarking information be available to enable Trusts to identify which providers are making this shift? The split would be inpatient/day case and outpatient for this basket of procedures.
