Study assesses added
value of Oxford AHSN
The Office of Health Economics Consulting and RAND Europe carried out a detailed analysis to assess the added value of the Oxford AHSN in four specific areas:
- anxiety & depression recovery rates
- improving referral pathways for preterm babies
- carbon reduction energy project
- spread of intermittent pneumatic compression stockings for stroke patients
The report provides evidence that the Oxford AHSN is capable of promoting high quality NHS care and delivering projects which improve patient outcomes at a cost that appears to represent good value for money.
