Community Indicators

Toolkit example

A set of 35 metrics are collected on a monthly basis covering patient safety & quality, productivity, workforce, data quality and finance. The project covers provision both within the community and inpatient community hospitals and provides timely feedback to participants.

Outputs include a monthly toolkit, showing participant positions against agreed benchmarks. Commentary on the change in position between months and PDF reporting can be generated from the toolkit.

This project is for all providers of community services or community hospitals. Participating trusts are required to sign a data sharing agreement, as all outputs do identify the participant organisations. This has been agreed between the group in order to facilitate networking and shared learning between trusts.

2017/18 benchmarking project

A new high impact dashboard was introduced in 2017, summarising an organisation’s position against the cohort on 12 key metrics. Also new for 2017 was a monthly data extract, enabling participants to pull data into internal trust performance systems.

Download a summary of the project together with the 2017 highlights.

This project runs on a monthly cycle and timely reports are given back to participants, with on average 5 days from submission of data to feedback. You can join in the enhanced monthly community indicators reporting at any point in the cycle. You can also update previous month’s submissions at any point.
