Data promised at ‘consultant level’ by summer

More from the latest briefing from the NHS Commissioning Board, on new data to be made available in 2013:

“Commissioners will be expected to make improvement against the NHS Outcomes Framework.

To improve information, providers should by summer 2013 publish consultant-level data covering survival rates and quality of care for ten specialties including cardiac, vascular and orthopaedic surgery. Publication will be a contractual obligation in 2014/15 to allow comparison across hospitals.”

Also:

“The NHS CB will collect core clinical data from GP practices to help analysis of outcomes across pathways of care and encourage the integration of services. The NHS CB will also develop a comprehensive set of data for hospital care for 2014/15.”

One to watch.
