CDS Data Quality Dashboards

CDS Data Quality Dashboards provide a detailed analysis of the quality of the Commissioning Data Sets (CDS) that have been submitted into the Secondary Uses Service (SUS). 

The data quality dashboard reports monitor and drive improvements in the quality and completeness of CDS data submitted to SUS. Organisations can use them to assess the quality of their data in SUS to ensure it is comprehensive and compliant with data standards whilst making comparisons against national and region level data.

A number of data quality reports are available covering the Admitted Patient Care (APC, including the Maternity and Critical Care data), Outpatients (OP) and the Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS) as well as reports which focus on specific topics such as clinical coding and specific data items like the Site Code of Treatment.
