PRIMIS is launching new PINCER Investment and Impact Fund (IIF) indicators to help identify figures for your IIF targets.
Although the searches referred to in the IIF 2020/21 Guidance are very similar to the PINCER searches, the way that they have been constructed is not the same: the denominators in the IIF Guidance differ to those in the PINCER indicators and are based on the NHS Digital/NHS BSA medication safety indicators. Our PINCER indicators are constructed by identifying the 'at-risk' population (denominator) and then searching for the group of patients exposed to the hazardous prescribing (numerator). Further details about the PINCER indicators can be found in the attached document.
We have taken this step to enable you to meet your requirements for this incentive scheme simply and efficiently. These searches are only available to those of you who are implementing PINCER and are now available under ‘Tools’ in the PINCER Resource Centre.
Please note, these IIF searches cannot be uploaded to CHART Online.
