COMMISSIONING DATA SET ADDRESSING GRID

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Commissioning Data Set Addressing Grid below illustrates which ORGANISATION CODES should be used to populate the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY and CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY for each PATIENT / NHS SERVICE AGREEMENT.  See the specific ORGANISATION CODE Data Elements for further information on their usage and Organisation Data Service Default Codes etc.

Health Care Providers need to specify the Organisations that have a right to the commissioning data set data as a CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY. This is so that they can access the data once it has been stored in the Secondary Uses Service.

Please note that payment via the National Tariff Payment System is not determined by the CDS PRIME RECIPIENT IDENTITY or CDS COPY RECIPIENT IDENTITY.

COMMUNITY SERVICES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Contextual Overview

The Community Services Data Set (CSDS) is a PATIENT level, output based, secondary uses data set which will deliver robust, comprehensive, nationally consistent and comparable person-centred information for people who are in contact with NHS-funded Community Health Services. As a secondary uses data set it intends to re-use clinical and operational data for purposes other than direct PATIENT care. It defines the data items, definitions and associated value sets to be extracted or derived from local systems.

The data collected in the Community Services Data Set covers all NHS-funded Community Health Services provided by Health Care Providers in England. This includes all SERVICES listed in the SERVICE OR TEAM TYPE REFERRED TO FOR COMMUNITY CARE within the Community Services Data Set, including any SERVICES that have transitioned into new organisational forms as a result of the Transforming Community Services (TCS) programme. This includes acute and Independent Sector Healthcare Providers that provide NHS-funded Community Health Services.

The Community Services Data Set is used by the Department of Health and Social Care, commissioners and Health Care Providers of Community Health Services and PATIENTS, as the data set provides:

  • National, comparable, standardised data about Community Health Services that are being delivered, which will support intelligent commissioning decisions and SERVICE provision
  • Information on the use of resources to improve the operational management of SERVICES
  • Information on outcomes, to help to address health inequalities
  • Support for current national outcome indicators for Community Health Services
  • Traceability and visibility of Community Health Service expenditure, allowing the implementation of new payment approaches for Community Health Services through the development of defined currencies which are underpinned by consistent data
  • Information to improve reference costs for Community Health Services, to ensure that these are reported consistently
  • Support for a nationally consistent clinical record for all PATIENTS across England, which can be used to support national research projects
  • Information for the future development of Community Health Services.

Data Collection

The Community Services Data Set provides the definitions for data:

  • To be lodged in the data warehouse regularly and routinely
  • To be assembled, compiled and to flow into a secondary uses data warehouse
  • To provide timely, pseudonymised PATIENT-based data and information for purposes other than direct clinical care, e.g. planning, commissioning, public health, clinical audit, performance improvement, research, clinical governance.

Data is expected to be collected from various clinical systems, collated and assembled. This standard is intended to facilitate electronic data recording and reporting but it is not intended to create clinical records for Community Health Services or to enable systems used by Community Health Services to interoperate with other clinical systems.

Submission Information

The Community Services Data Set is submitted to NHS Digital using the Community Services Data Set (CSDS) XML Schema.

Format Information

Data for submission will be formatted into an XML file as per the Technology Reference Data Update Distribution (TRUD) page at: NHS Data Model and Dictionary: DD XML Schemas.

For enquiries regarding the XML Schema, please contact NHS Digital at enquiries@nhsdigital.nhs.uk.

DATA SERVICES PLATFORM

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Data Services Platform (DSP) is a secure, highly-scalable system that transforms the way data is used to improve health and care.

The Data Services Platform enables more efficient data collection, processing and distribution and delivers a clearer picture of health and care by providing more timely access to better linked, anonymised data.

IMPROVING ACCESS TO PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPIES DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data Set will be in included in a future version of the Mental Health Services Data Set.

The collection of outcome data including clinical scores is a defining characteristic for stepped care and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended model of delivery of psychological therapies. 

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data Set provides an agreed national standard for data collection for commissioned providers of psychological therapy for anxiety and depression. Standardised PATIENT centred information facilitates an integrated approach to the provision of psychological therapies and leads to improvements in the quality of services.

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data Set supports:

  • Clinicians to evaluate the effectiveness, refine and adapt the interventions provided using PATIENT outcome measures
  • Development and refinement of policy relating to psychological therapies
  • Monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Programme
  • The equity of provision in relation to geographical, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and DISABILITY coverage of the new services
  • The profile of therapy types provided, diagnosis pattern and durations of interventions and the frequency of multi-step interventions; and the relationship of these to presenting problems, medication usage, outcomes (clinical, symptomatic, work and social)
  • Performance management at Clinical Commissioning Group and national level
  • Better planning and management of services at local level
  • Waiting Time monitoring through the central calculation of waiting times
  • Monitoring of PATIENT experience to inform service delivery
  • Capture of activity and movement across the stepped care pathway
  • The development of a payment system for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Services.

The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Data Set includes information on:

Time period

The extract covers one month.

Frequency

Reports are run monthly.

NATIONAL NEONATAL DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

Contextual Overview

The National Neonatal Data Set consists of a defined list of data items that are extracted from electronic clinical records created by clinical staff on all admissions to Neonatal Critical Care Units in England.

The National Neonatal Data Set is in two parts:

The two neonatal data sets comprise data items relating to PATIENT demographics, CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS, outcomes, and PATIENT DIAGNOSES. Each data item is mapped where possible to existing ISB / SCCI / DCB Information Standards and Collections (including Extractions) (such as the Neonatal Critical Care Minimum Data Set and Maternity Services Data Set) as well as to SNOMED CT and ICD codes. Each data item is mapped where possible to existing ISB / SCCI / DCB Information Standards and Collections (including Extractions) (such as the Neonatal Critical Care Minimum Data Set and Maternity Services Data Set Version 1) as well as to SNOMED CT and ICD codes.

The aim of the National Neonatal Data Set is to extract data items from electronic clinical records, create a database of these items, and make this available as a national resource to serve a variety of needs, so avoiding duplicate data collections for different purposes, minimising the burden placed upon clinical teams, and promoting data quality and completeness.

Organisations involved in the collection may choose whether to allow identifiable or unidentifiable (anonymised) information to flow to the Neonatal Data Analysis Unit.  Where anonymised data is to flow, the appropriate 'withheld' patient and parents demographic structures should be used (i.e. those with no PERSON IDENTIFIERS, such as NHS NUMBER or PERSON BIRTH DATE). 

In addition, where anonymisation is required, the DATES AND TIMES of events carried throughout the data set (such as PROCEDURE DATE (NEWBORN HEARING SCREENING)SAMPLE COLLECTION DATE AND TIME, PROCEDURE DATE AND TIME (ABDOMINAL X-RAY)) should be replaced with the specific relevant YEAR AND MONTH of the event and the NUMBER OF MINUTES (BIRTH TO EVENT).In addition, where anonymisation is required, the DATES AND TIMES of events carried throughout the data set (such as SAMPLE COLLECTION DATE AND TIME, PROCEDURE DATE AND TIME (ABDOMINAL X-RAY)) should be replaced with the specific relevant YEAR AND MONTH of the event and the NUMBER OF MINUTES (BIRTH TO EVENT).  The National Neonatal Data Set structure allows an either/or choice for these event items throughout the data set.

Data Collection

The National Neonatal Data Set consists of a defined list of data items that are extracted from electronic clinical records created by clinical staff relating to all neonatal critical care delivered in England.  The Neonatal Data Analysis Unit has established a database, the National Neonatal Research Database (NNRD) to hold data comprising the National Neonatal Data Set, as a national resource.

Submission Information

For submission information, see the NDAU website.  Note that all DATE AND TIME fields in the National Neonatal Data Set should be in Co-ordinated Universal Time (UTC) for submission purposes.

Further Guidance

Further guidance has been produced by the Neonatal Data Analysis Unit and is available on their website at: NDAU website.

ODS Default Codes:R9998 - Not a hospital site
 89999 - Non-NHS UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued
 89997 - Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued

Notes:
ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) is the same as attribute ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER.

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) is the ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER of the Organisation Site where the PATIENT was treated, i.e. it should enable the treating Organisation to be identified.

ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) identifies the Organisation Site within the Organisation on which the PATIENT was treated, since facilities may vary on different hospital sites.

The code recorded should always be the national code; if the treatment is sub-commissioned to another NHS Health Care Provider or an independent UK provider, the ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER of the Health Care Provider actually carrying out the work.

Where treatment is sub-commissioned to an overseas provider the Organisation Data Service Default Code 89997 'Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER has been issued' is applicable.

Each Organisation has a unique ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER. However, where an Organisation has more than one site from which it provides SERVICES, then each site is uniquely identified. These sites are Organisation Sites and are uniquely identified by an ORGANISATION IDENTIFIER.

For out-patients, ACTIVITY may take place outside the hospital, such as in the PATIENT'S home; in such cases, raising a site code is impractical. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the classification of the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred. 

Use in the Future Outpatient CDS:
If the INTENDED SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is not known, this data element should be omitted.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.

The code recorded should always be the national code; if the treatment is sub-commissioned to another NHS Health Care Provider or an independent UK provider, the SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) used should be the ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the Health Care Provider actually carrying out the work.

Where treatment is sub-commissioned to an overseas provider the Organisation Data Service Default Code 89997 'Non-UK Provider where no ORGANISATION SITE CODE has been issued' is applicable. 

Each Organisation has a unique ORGANISATION CODE. However, where an Organisation has more than one site from which it provides SERVICES, then each site is uniquely identified. These sites are Organisation Sites and are uniquely identified by ORGANISATION SITE CODE. The ORGANISATION SITE CODE contains the first 3 digits of the ORGANISATION CODE with the last two digits being the site identifier.

Example:

RA700ORGANISATION CODE of the Organisation 
RA701ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the first identified Organisation Site within the Organisation 
RA702ORGANISATION SITE CODE of the second identified Organisation Site within the Organisation 

For out-patients, ACTIVITY may take place outside the hospital, such as in the PATIENT'S home; in such cases, raising a site code is impractical. Therefore, code R9998 'Not a hospital site' would be used in these circumstances.
Note: LOCATION CLASS is used in the Commissioning Data Set (CDS) message to indicate the classification of the physical LOCATION within which the ACTIVITY occurred. 

Use in the Future Outpatient CDS:
If the INTENDED SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) is not known, this data element should be omitted.

SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.SITE CODE (OF TREATMENT) will be replaced with ORGANISATION SITE IDENTIFIER (OF TREATMENT), when it has been approved for use in national information standards.
