The Clinical Digital Maturity Index – NHS England – 5 November 2013

“The Clinical Digital Maturity Index (CDMI) has been developed by EHI Intelligence in partnership with NHS England. It is a unique benchmarking tool that enables NHS Trusts to better understand how investing in, then effectively using, information technology can achieve better patient outcomes, reduce bureaucracy, improve patient safety and deliver efficiencies.

The CDMI was launched on 5 November 2013 , as an initial baseline analysis specifically created as a means of putting insight into the hands of clinicians, senior managers and boards, as to the alternative road maps that exist to secure clinical digital maturity at an organisational and systematic level.

The baseline CDMI was created using information that EHI Intelligence had obtained directly from NHS Trusts. As a first step, Trusts will be invited to self-validate the information held within the tool. The breadth of data analysed will increase in time to include more points of care (for example in community services) and to ensure that new capabilities are added as the digital landscape evolves.

NHS England has agreed with EHI Intelligence to make the CDMI available to NHS Trusts free of charges. Trusts are invited to register with the EHI Intelligence service here through which they will be able to access the CDMI collated report alongside individual Trust profiles.”

News release: NHS England launches Clinical Digital Maturity Index to improve patient safety – 5 November 2013

“NHS England and EHI Intelligence have today announced the launch of the Clinical Digital Maturity Index (CDMI), a benchmarking tool that enables NHS hospitals to better understand how investing in, then effectively using information technology can improve patient safety and outcomes, reduce bureaucracy, and deliver efficiencies.

The levels of digital capability in the NHS is variable and the CDMI will help NHS Trusts see where they are in terms of digital capability and monitor progress over time. The index, free to all NHS organisations, will help them rate their own technical capabilities, such as e-prescribing and e-referral, and identify where progress can be made.

The CDMI also delivers on NHS England’s commitment to develop and publish a Clinical Digital Maturity Index in Putting Patients First: The NHS England Business Plan 2013/14 – 2015/16 to drive the move to digital records, prescribing and referrals by March 2015.

NHS England has partnered with EHI Intelligence to develop the CDMI, which is based on EHI’s existing tool and uses information obtained directly from NHS Trusts, to provide the learning and information completely free of charge to all NHS organisations, saving the NHS about £1.6m.”
