We have introduced a new data quality dimension to measure the level of consistency of a provider’s submission over a timeseries. This applies Statistical Process Control over a rolling 12-month period to produce a score based on the number of standard deviations from the average. This score will be published as experimental for the remainder of 2019-20 so as not to impact the MHSDS DQMI whilst the CQUIN is being applied.
Thank you to everyone that completed our short survey on the data quality services and support offered by NHS Digital. We are currently review the scores, identify the main themes within the feedback and develop an action plan to address these. We will publish the analysis and the action plan with the DQMI reports in November.
The survey is still open and can access the survey by clicking on this link NHS Digital Data Quality Assurance Survey.
We held the first Data Quality Assurance Provider Forum on 23rd September with data quality colleagues from across seventeen trusts.
