New national CQUIN goals guidance

1st May 2012

The Department of Health has introduced two new national Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) payment framework goals for 2012/13.

It has been estimated that around a quarter of acute hospital beds are used by patients who have dementia. The dementia goal is designed to "help identify patients with dementia and other causes of cognitive impairment, alongside their other medical conditions and to prompt appropriate referral and follow up after they leave hospital".

The second goal, the Safety Thermometer CQUIN,  is "to increase the measurement of harm from pressure ulcers, falls, urinary tract infections in patients with catheters and VTE by using this device".
