This topic of interest reviews finalised published PROMs data for five years between 2009/10 and 2013/14, with additional provisional data for 2014/15. The data are shown at individual provider and England total levels by each of the four PROMs-eligible procedures and their measures.
Update 10/11/2016: This publication has been updated since initial publication in November 2015 in order to rectify problems with the data discovered within the interactive spreadsheet. Data within the 'complications' and 'adjusted health gain' sections of the spreadsheet were found to be incorrect. Data within the 'modelled records' section of the topic and the regular quarterly PROMs publication published on the same day are unaffected.
A time series analysis has been created, looking specifically at:
- Linkage and Participation- the numbers and proportions of people who have returned matched pre- and post-operative questionnaires compared to the numbers who underwent each of the PROMs surgical procedures.
- Adjusted Average Health Gain- the improvement or otherwise of the levels of well-being, mobility and ability to carry out day to day tasks, measured via two questionnaires, one prior to and one following the given surgical procedure. There is an allowance of time for recovery before the post-operative questionnaire is sent, which varies depending on the procedure.
- Complications- the count and proportion of people who experienced complications following their surgery, categorised into four groups: allergy to drugs administered; bleeding; urinary, and wound problems (e.g. infection). Further to this, data are provided showing re-admissions and where further surgery has been required.
For each of the three available datasets, a provider can be selected from the dropdown boxes, along with the chosen procedure and one of the given measures. The data for the provider are then compared to the average for England.
Some fields, where the user might expect to see data, are showing "*". This may be as a result of either primary suppression (figures are 5 or less and there is a risk of identification of individual patients) or secondary suppression (used on the next smallest number, so that the primary suppression is not disclosed). We have provided the data exactly as they were published to comply with the suppression policy used at the time of release.
