NHS Hospital Data and Datasets: A Consultation – NHS England – 22 July 2013

News:  NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre launch a consultation on hospital data to raise standards and improve patient safety

“NHS England and the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) today published NHS Hospital Data and Datasets: A Consultation to explore how better extraction of information from hospitals’ data systems could help raise standards, improve safety, and reduce inequalities in patient care.

The Hospital Data and Datasets Consultation asks for views on what information should be extracted from hospitals in future to support the commissioners of health care services, and how to minimise any extra burden on hospitals.

The potential new data requirements being consulted upon include extracting information about tests and investigations performed, nursing care delivered, and medicines prescribed.

High quality data will underpin the transformation of the NHS, ensuring that it becomes truly patient centred and clinically led. Collecting and sharing accurate information with providers, commissioners, patients and the public will help to assess safety issues and identify areas where outcomes and patient experience can be improved.”
