Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN)

Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) Payment Framework

The CQUIN framework was first introduced in April 2009 as a national framework for locally agreed quality improvement schemes. The CQUIN payment framework enables commissioners to reward excellence, by linking a proportion of healthcare providers’ income to the achievement of local quality improvement goals.

The framework aims to embed quality within commissioner provider discussions and to create a culture of continuous quality improvement, with stretching goals agreed in contracts on an annual basis.
