The story so far

Health Informatics Unit – the first 10 years

John Williams

Director, Health Informatics Unit


Overview
Overview

  • Where we are now:

    • A brief review of the work of the RCP HIU

  • Where we are going:

    • A look to the future


Rcp health informatics unit our mission
RCP Health Informatics Unit: our mission

  • To improve and develop the recording and communication of information about patients so that this effectively and safely supports a wide variety of purposes

  • These purposes include

    • support for patient care (primary purpose)

    • source of data for aggregate analysis (secondary uses)

  • This mission applies to both paper and electronic patient records and communications

Validity value of hes pedw

HES

PEDW

Validity/value of HES/PEDW

  • HES/PEDW are inappropriate for ‘clinical’ purposes at alocallevel

    • Missing or incorrect episodes, diagnoses and procedures

      Williams JG & Mann RY Hospital Episode Statistics: time for clinicians to get involved? Clinical Medicine 2002;2(1):34-7.

    • Poor timeliness – long delay before the data are available

    • Poor attribution of data to individual professionals

    • Insufficient clinical depth – only diagnosis & procedures

      Croft GP et al The RCP Information Laboratory: breaking the cycle of poor data quality Clinical Medicine 2005;5: 47-9

      Croft GP et al Can hospital episode statistics support appraisal and revalidation? Clinical Medicine 2007;7:332-8

  • HES/PEDW are not useful for national audit

  • Roberts SE et al Feasibility of using routinely collected inpatient data to monitor quality and inform choice: a case study using the UK Inflammatory Bowel Disease audit. Frontline Gastroenterology 2011;2:153-9.

  • HES/PEDW are of value at a populationlevel

  • Roberts SE et al Hospital admission for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease in England: comparison of mortality with and without colectomy. BMJ 2007;335:1033-36.

Why these problems
Why these problems?

  • Data is recorded in poorly structured paper records

  • Clinical content is not standardised

  • Clinical terms are not defined

  • Haphazard scrutiny of record content by seniors

  • No requirement for clinical validation before returns are made

  • Coding rules are inappropriate – eg‘impression’

  • Data is coded in classifications that lack clinical granularity (ICD-10 & OPCS-4)

  • Information Departments are focused on meeting the needs of the organisation rather than clinicians

  • Dataset is too limited from a clinical perspective: only diagnosis and procedures; no clinical data on out-patients


Can hes pedw be improved
Can HES/PEDW be improved?

  • Yes, in the short-term, with greater attention to clear documentation of diagnoses and procedures

  • No, in the long-term, without radical changes to the current dataset and process for collection

  • 2007-9: Developed standards for structure and content of medical records (Admission records, handover & discharge)

Clinical record standards
Clinical Record Standards

  • Evidence and consensus based standards for the structure and content of admission records, handover & discharge communications

  • Endorsed by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges; DH; GMC; CQC; NICE; NHSLA; Medical Schools Council; Postgraduate Deans

Clinical record standards1
Clinical Record Standardshttp://www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/systemsandservices/clinrecords/24hour

  • Current work is addressing ambulatory care:

    • Scoping the contexts in which contact with hospitals occur

    • Identifying the information needs of these contacts

    • Developing generic standards for the structure and content of the record

  • Other work

    • Refining the standards for the admission record

    • Developing editorial principles to ensure sustainability

    • Consulting on a core set of common data items
