National Benchmarker re-released with exclusive HRG4 data – UK Audit Commission – 29 June 2009

“The Audit Commission, supported by the NHS Information Centre, has released a brand new set of benchmarking data to assist the NHS with the introduction of healthcare resource group (HRG) 4.

As well as updating the existing indicators, we’ve also developed some brand new HRG4-specific indicators. This national retrospective analysis is only available from the Commission’s National Benchmarker and is not accessible anywhere else in the NHS.

Whether you are in a PCT, trust, hospital department or, indeed, are an individual clinician, the National Benchmarker compares acute hospital activity data, clinical coding and PbR related data with other organisations to flag up questions for concern, or for discussions about matters such as healthcare management, payments or data collection. It covers both inpatient and outpatient data, and is based on over 50 separate data quality indicators.

The tool is intuitive and easy to use with technical and non-technical views giving you user-friendly reporting. Recent improvements in the functionality of the tool allow you to target areas of specific interest such as efficiency and productivity.

A new user guide and a revised tutorial video demonstrating how to use the tool have been published. Case studies have also been developed highlighting the benefits of the tool for commissioners and providers.”

National Benchmarker user guide
“This user guide has been designed as a landscape document to be printed off double-sided. The majority of this user guide consists of screenshots marked up with numbered arrows, and these arrows relate to descriptive text on the page preceding the screenshot. Printing this document off double-sided and stapling across the length-ways spine as shown will allow you to view the text and the screenshot together.”
