System Level Measures funding
The System Level Measures (SLM) framework continues to develop. Pegasus, along with other PHOs, receives a portion of Canterbury's funding which is provided both to build capacity and to achieve quality improvements across the system. The pie chart which is similar to last year, shows that most of this funding is used to support quality improvement at practitioner and practice level, education and innovation in planning new ways of working.
Income has increased slightly again this year reflecting the improved capability and capacity across the Canterbury Health System which is successfully delivering improvements in the system level measures as part of a wider programme of clinical governance.
Pegasus, as a key partner in the Canterbury SLM group, continues to be influential in the development of the SLM framework and pleasingly the Ministry continues to use our processes and plans as exemplars for the developing national programme.
