Our goal is to maximise the accessibility, quality and utility of health and care data while respecting privacy, transparency and ethics. Over the last year we have supported a number of separate projects including improvements to COVID data collection, and ongoing support to ECDS (Emergency Care Data Set).
Our services continue to be in demand this year and we have already started on new projects to support the Ambulance Data Set (ADS) and the National Workforce Reporting Service (NWRS).
As such our main focus is to support providers to improve their data and help to find a solution that works for them. All of which supports the secretary of States ‘Zero Burden ambition and through significant engagement with providers, this continued work will feed into the ambition of rolling out Zero Burden across the NHS.
What's involved, top line
A major element of our role since we established in 2020 has been to leverage our support and services to providers throughout difficult times and ensure the delivery of capabilities. This has included developing our zero burden approach and methodologies by simplifying the collection of Emergency Care from providers, delivering rapid feedback of national data to providers within 24 hours and removing duplication.
NHS Digital requires professionals to harness and appreciate the importance of stakeholder relationships and good data quality for the public good. The health and care system has a very rich array of data that benefit patients and citizens and we have already invested heavily in the infrastructure required to process, access and surface that data. We listen. We understand. We support and now require individuals that can liaise and work with providers to help us understand their needs and convert that into solutions that offer data improvements, reduced burden and can offer real insight into difference to the lives of people everyday.
