Some EIP measure values (mainly the ‘Not on EIP pathway’ measures) for Black Country Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (TAJ) are 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. For example, for Aug-21 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, though the first monthly MHSDS publication this revised data will feed into will be September 2021 Performance, due to be published on Thursday 9th December 2021. It 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.
