Quality & Equality Impact Assessments (QEIA)
NHS NEW Devon CCG has recently developed a Quality & Equality Impact Assessment (QEIA) Tool. The CCG has taken the decision to combine Quality and Equality Impact Assessments into one tool that can be used to assess both areas. 
 
The core components of the tool are as follows:
  • Safety – Rating the impact of the proposal on patient safety
  • Effectiveness – Rating the impact of the proposal on the clinical effectiveness of patient care
  • Experience – Rating the impact of the proposal on the patient experience of care delivery
  • Other Impacts – Rating the impact of the proposal on other services, patient groups, staff or reputation of the organisation.
  • Equality & Diversity – Rating the impact on those in specific group as outlined in the Equality Act 2010 and also including other hard to reach groups.

The Quality & Equality Impact Assessment Tool will be used for all commissioning decisions and changes.
