Review of 2017-18 and what’s on in 2018-19

We are pleased to report that the 2017-18 work programme continued to provide timely, unique and comprehensive data for our members, covering the four key health sectors; commissioning, acute, mental health and community. The Network has grown year on year, at both a national level, and internationally, and we appreciate the opportunities around the world to share knowledge with others on healthcare analytics. As we look forward to 2018-19, we welcome you to read through the Annual Work Programme Report for 2017-18, reviewing the year and the successes from the 17 core projects provided.

The Network will continue to focus its’ efforts on the commissioner and provider work programme, and is grateful for the feedback from the annual member survey to help grow and develop the projects. The insight members provide enables us to support commissioners and providers better and consequently support service improvement opportunities, communicate transformation and change, and improve performance.

The commissioner projects to be delivered in 2018-19 are as follows:

  • Urgent Care
  • Planned Care
  • CCG Functions
  • Primary Care

You can read more about the projects on offer via the commissioner brochure.  

The provider projects to be delivered in 2018-19 are as follows:

Acute Sector

  • Emergency Care
  • Radiology
  • Older People’s Care in Acute Settings / DToC
  • Theatres
  • Outpatient Services

Community Sector

  • Community Services
  • Monthly Community Indicators
  • Community Hospitals

Mental Health

  • Mental Health Inpatient & Community Services
  • Learning Disabilities

You can read more about the projects on offer via the provider brochure. The Acute Therapies project will return in the 2019/20 work programme.

In addition to our core projects, we are delighted to announce that the Network is facilitating the National Audit of Intermediate Care (NAIC) 2018 and National Audit of Care at the End of Life (NACEL). You can find out more about each of these projects via their dedicated webpages. Both audits are free to participate and are part of the HQIP Quality Accounts list.

Alongside our projects opening for spring/summer, we will be welcoming our members to our annual regional events, occurring throughout May. The workshops will be a fantastic opportunity for our support team to meet our members, but also to provide insightful knowledge on benchmarking and whole system analytics. We look forward to meeting you all and to an exciting 2018-19.
