Healthcare professionals can use the DOVE tool to explore the relationship between spending on diabetes treatment and local clinical outcomes for patients. This can help with planning and commissioning local services.
There are 2 versions of the tool:
- the GP version includes clinical outcomes from the National Diabetes Audit (NDA) and Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF), and prescribing data from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (now NHS Digital)
- the CCG version includes QOF and prescribing data
Both versions include guidance for users.
