Description

The minimum Commissioning Data Sets  information flow requirement to enable Hospital Episode Statistics, 18 Weeks ACTIVITY reporting, and the National Tariff Payment System  to be supported by the Secondary Uses Service is shown in the table below.

The Secondary Uses Service  supports every CDS Type but only a subset is mandated to flow.

Commissioning Data Sets may flow to the Secondary Uses Service  using either Net Change or Bulk Replacement Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocols.  Many Standard NHS Contracts between Health Care Providers  and the commissioners of their SERVICES, now specify weekly submission of initially-coded data sets to the Secondary Uses Service.  The use of Net Change  Commissioning Data Set Submission Protocols  is recommended for submissions of this frequency.
