CANCER OUTCOMES AND SERVICES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set provides a standard for secondary uses information required to support implementation and monitoring of "Improving Outcomes: a strategy for cancer". It replaced the previous National Cancer Data Set and the Cancer Registration Data Set.

The standard:

Additionally the output supports commissioning and service development through provision of relevant information on service delivery and outcomes.

All PATIENTS diagnosed with or receiving cancer treatment in (or funded by the NHS in) England are covered by the standard. This includes adult and paediatric cancer PATIENTS. The standard applies to all Organisations providing Cancer Services within secondary care. It does not apply to general practice Organisations.

The Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set covers diseases as defined by the United Kingdom and Ireland Association of Cancer Registries (UKIACR) as described in the User Guide at Appendix A and B.

Unless otherwise specified, the term cancer is used throughout the standard and related documents to cover all conditions registerable by the United Kingdom and Ireland Association of Cancer Registries.

Submission Information:

Providers of Cancer Services are required to provide a monthly return on all cancer PATIENTS using the Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set.

The Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set is submitted to the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) using the COSDS XML Schema.

While the core and cancer site specific data sets are shown as separate data sets within the NHS Data Model and Dictionary, the COSDS XML Schema integrates each core and cancer site specific set of data elements. Documentation provided on the Technology Reference Data Update Distribution (TRUD) page at: NHS Data Model and Dictionary: DD XML Schemas gives full details of the specification.

For all diagnoses not covered by a cancer site specific data set, only the Core Data Set should be completed. A full list of diagnoses mapped to the appropriate data set is provided in the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service User Guide.

Pathology:

From January 2016 Pathology Laboratories across England were mandated through SCCI1521 17/2014, to collect and return structured pathology using the COSDS XML Schema.From January 2016 Pathology Laboratories across England were mandated through SCCI1521 17/2014, to collect and return structured pathology using the COSDS XML Schema.

This replaced the current reporting to the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service of electronic pathology reports which were then transcribed by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service into the Cancer Registration Reports. This also prevented Cancer Service teams, for example, Multidisciplinary Teams, Pathway Co-ordinators, duplicating the work, which had been happening as part of their data collection process.

From April 2017, a separate Pathology XML Schema was introduced, which is a sub-set of the main Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set.

By creating a sub-set for pathology, this allows the Cancer Service teams to concentrate on collecting and reporting all the other clinical data required for the Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set and the Pathologists to collect and report the pathology items. This will reduce the burden of data collection for the Cancer Service teams and allow for more accurate pathology reporting to be submitted to the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service.

There will be no requirement for Pathology Laboratories to double report. Once their Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are updated to report in the COSDS XML Schema, all other pathology reporting can cease.

Further Guidance:

Further guidance for submission of the Cancer Outcomes and Services Data Set is provided by the National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service at Cancer Outcomes and Services Dataset.

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) is a PATIENT level, output based, secondary uses data set which aims to deliver robust, comprehensive, nationally consistent and comparable person-based information for children, young people and adults (including elderly people) who are in contact with specialist secondary Mental Health Services.

As a secondary uses data set, the Mental Health Services Data Set re-uses clinical and operational data for purposes other than direct PATIENT care and defines the data items, definitions and associated value sets to be extracted or derived from local information systems.

All ACTIVITY relating to PATIENTS who receive specialist secondary Mental Health Services and have, or are thought to have:

The scope of the Mental Health Services Data Set requires PATIENT record level data submission from SERVICES as follows:

For each PATIENT:

  • If the care is wholly funded by the NHS: the data submission for that PATIENT is mandatory
  • If the care is partially funded by the NHS: the data submission for that PATIENT is mandatory
  • If the care is wholly funded by any means that is not NHS: the data submission for that PATIENT is optional.

Children and adolescents (including those with a Learning Disability and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorder) under the age of 18 should also be included where they are in receipt of care from a specialist secondary mental health, Learning Disabilities or Autistic Spectrum Disorder SERVICE or an Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) Service.

Children and young people in receipt of psychological therapies covered under the Children and Young People's Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (CYP IAPT) are also included within the scope of this standard. However, ACTIVITY covered in the Adult Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (IAPT) is out of scope; this is submitted under the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data Set.

The Mental Health Services Data Set is used across the range of Health Care Providers and Organisations that provide specialist secondary mental health and/or Learning Disabilities and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorder SERVICES (irrespective of funding arrangements) including:

SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH ACTIVITY DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Public Health England requires the mandatory collection of information on the SERVICES provided by Sexual and Reproductive Health Services.

The Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Data Set provides essential data to:

  • Ensure a relevant collection of electronic data to support local service development
  • Allow monitoring of key policy initiatives and indicators such as: The Public Health Outcome Framework Indicator on under 18 conceptions; increasing access to all methods of contraception, including Long Acting Reversible Contraceptions (LARC) methods and emergency contraception for women of all ages and their partners; reducing teenage conceptions; reducing the rate of unintended pregnancies and modernisation of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services
  • Provide appropriate definitions and guidance material to enable a standardised data set from Sexual and Reproductive Health Services
  • Support commissioners in understanding which population groups are accessing Sexual and Reproductive Health Services and which SERVICES they are receiving, including the LARC methods as recommended by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), and therefore allowing for long-term commissioning of SERVICES
  • Develop, over time, indicators of quality and outcome in SERVICE delivery (especially in comparative reports). For example the removal and length of use for LARC devices, provision of emergency CONTRACEPTION, the provision of CONTRACEPTION post abortion and referrals to secondary care, the comparison of attendance rates for selected care and the diversity of young PERSON provision by Sexual and Reproductive Health Services including social referrals
  • Aid the development of a benchmark measure to indicate how SERVICES compare in delivering the most appropriate and effective care to PATIENTS
