Description

Excerpt

Enables a Patient/Service User to set up and manage a Personal Health Budget giving them more choice and control over the management of their identified healthcare and well-being needs.

Personal Health Budgets are amounts of money allocated to a Patient/Service User to support their health and well-being needs and to enable them to purchase and manage their own treatments, equipment and personal care. Personal Health Budgets are available to Adults receiving NHS Continuing Healthcare and children receiving continuing care - for example, people with long-term physical or mental health issues. Requests outside this are considered on a case basis by the Patient/Service User's CCG.

A Personal Health Budget Capability will allow a Personal Health Budget to be defined, reviewed and updated. The Capability facilitates the link between the Personal Health Budget and the Patient/Service User's care plan to ensure spend is directed towards meeting the Patient/Service User's health goals. A Personal Health Budget Capability will allow purchases of a range of products and services to deliver the agreed health and well-being outcomes, for example therapies (e.g. counselling), personal care (e.g. a personal assistant), services (e.g. gym membership) and equipment (e.g. a wheelchair). CCGs will be able to assess Personal Health Budgets to ensure they are used appropriately.

A Personal Health Budget Capability may manage multiple budgets and the directory of equipment, treatments and therapies and give further reporting functionality. It may also link to the Patient record and Workflow tasks to further broaden its integration with other functions.
