The Department defines in its Oversight Framework the ways in which it expects Manx Care to report on performance, establishing a single point of reference for reporting and assurance. The Oversight Framework will provide a clear approach to measuring performance of health and care services across the whole system, whilst respecting the operational independence and autonomy of individual organisations. The Framework seeks to align the strategic priorities defined within the Mandate against the operational priorities of Manx Care, other relevant service providers commissioned and identified through the Mandate, to directly provide health and care services. The Oversight Framework sets out agreed baselines and projected service levels, quality standards, performance metrics, predicted outcomes and benefits for Service Users, and the methodologies for performance measurement and reporting.
