QUArk Tools for CCGs

QUArk Agile Development

How can QUArk Tools HELP CCGs?

  • The business of a CCG is commissioning (buying services)

  • Choosing which organisations are offering the best quality of service requires INFORMATION (information is processed DATA)

  • ANSWER : A key feature of ALL dashboards generated by the QUArk Indicator Tool for CCGs is the exposure to and functionality to assist with the analysis of quality information

  • QUArk dashboards handle both financial (e.g. Cost of Stay) and performance (e.g. Length of Stay) indicators

  • QUArk dashboards handle both physical and mental health activity

  • The QUArk data model reflects the new / transitioned NHS structure OUT go: SHAs, PCTs IN come: NHS England (& regions), CCGs, Locations + Primary and Social Care

Why NHS clinicians and management need QUArk tools …

  • Because of the increasing scope and complexity of available data

  • Because of the increasing cost of resource (both in terms of people and time) required to develop useful reports

  • Because of increasing expectations from patients, service users and people (both in terms of quality and time)

  • QUArk generated dashboards recognize the importance of displaying up to date (UTD) information, ultimately this will be determined by how quickly the data is captured and entered by NHS professionals)

    The QUArk Indicator Tool for CCGs can generate an unlimited number of dashboards …

The STORY : CCGs help NHS organisations to save money …

  • There is a view that some general practices are spending significantly more money on drugs than they need

  • The following screen shots are taken from a dashboard generated by the QUArk Indicator Tool for CCGs

  • The data is made up of:

    • REAL prescribing data

    • sample health integeratedpathways

    • an NHS organisation structure which is made up of both real and sample data BUT reflects the new / transitioned structure

The dashboard is made up of 3 indicators: cancer Referrals (cREF); Drugs Prescribed (PDRUG); Actual Cost of Drugs prescribed (PDRUG£)

… select the indicator PDRUG£ (average drug cost)

There is a suspicion that there are significant variations in the cost of Gaviscon …

… select Gaviscon from the drugs list on the filters tab

A “mekko” chart hi lights this variation …

The Data Set tab provides the detail …

The Source of the Data (prescribing data spreadsheet) contains the issue (possibly data quality) identified by the tool …

Additional Standard Chart (RAG gauge) shows tolerance …

Standard Charts (e.g. patient demographics bar chart) show additional information …

Forecasting: Adjust the targets, potentially changing the RAG rating, using the slider

Dashboards alone will NOT improve efficiency

  • Efficient USE of efficient dashboards WILL improve efficiency

  • QUArk Tools build efficient dashboards:

    • STRONG data model (TEAM based)

    • RICH functionality (healthpathway/timeline)

    • HI performance (user interface response times)

Further Information …

  • Dashboards built by QUArk Tools can be offered as a hosted service

  • QUArk can assist with the building of dashboards as required

  • Additional screen shots are available from the QUArk website:


  • A User Guide for QUArk Tools is available providing a detailed description of the functionality within all dashboards generated by QUArk Tools

Finally (single integrated data model, no data duplication) …

… the system date and time is not today’s date and time !
