Between December 2020 Performance and August 2021 Performance, some EIP measure values (mainly the ‘Not on EIP pathway’ measures) for Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (TAJ) were found to be excessively high due to a data quality issue and do not reflect actual activity.
As a result, certain EIP measure values at national level are also much higher than they otherwise would be over the same time period. For example, for August 2021 Performance, the national EIP32 and EIP63 measure values including TAJ are 13,457 and 4,647 respectively. Excluding TAJ, the national EIP32 and EIP63 measure values are 8,447 and 3,692 respectively.
In December 2020, Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (TAJ) migrated to a new Electronic Patient Record. As a result of the implementation, (Suspected) First Episode Psychosis / At Risk Mental State within PRIMARY REASON FOR REFERRAL (MENTAL HEALTH) was made available to all teams within scope of the MHSDS, when it should have been restricted to teams qualified to provide treatment for FEP/ARMS.
The system configuration has now been modified to reflect this. TAJ have also resubmitted April to September 2021 MHSDS data, and this September 2021 Final publication is the first this revised data has fed into. The national September 2021 Final measure values for EIP32 and EIP63 are 8,695 and 3,755 respectively.
Revised data for TAJ will also feed into ‘End of Year’ monthly CSV files containing finalised data for every month from April 2021 onwards, however TAJ data for each month from December 2020 to March 2021 inclusive will not be revised as the 2020/21 multiple submission window model deadline closed on Friday 21st May 2021.
