“Across all sectors therefore, better data needs to continue to be developed that is accessible to, and used by, all stakeholders” Care Quality Commission, October 2015
“High quality information will empower the health and social care sector in identifying where new care is needed to meet the needs of local populations. Using data, we can determine what care is working well and what needs to be improved, allowing patients, clinicians and commissioners to compare the quality and efficiency of care in different parts of the country.” Dr Geraint Lewis, Chief Data Officer, NHS England
This conference focuses on improving data quality and clinical coding to deliver clinically meaningful information that can be used by commissioners and providers to demonstrate quality, patient safety and act as an early warning system for poor or declining performance.
The conference focuses on the quality of hospital data. The conference opens with an update on improving data quality and the role of data as an early warning system to identifying outliers and patient safety concerns and continues with an update on national standards . The conference continues with expert sessions and practical case studies on how organisations are improving clinical coding and data quality including improving clinical ownership to ensure accuracy.
“With the increased focus on quality in the NHS, it’s important that the tools we use to measure it are consistent and accurate. Clinicians have a vital role in ensuring the validity of the data that are used, not only to measure quality but to ensure appropriate payment” Dr Nick Bishop Senior Medical Advisor, The Care Quality Commission
