Data Quality and Clinical Coding for Improvement

Venue: Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street

Date: 17 Oct 2014

Synopsis: This conference focuses on improving data quality and clinical coding to deliver clinically meaningful information that can be used by commissioners and providers to demonstrate quality, patient safety and act as an early warning system for poor or declining performance. This is particularly important following the events at Mid Staffordshire where the Francis Inquiry recommended that "All healthcare provider organisations should develop and publish real time information on the performance of their consultants and specialist teams in relation to mortality, morbidity, outcome and patient satisfaction, and on the performance of each team and their services against the fundamental standards." Mid Staffordshire Inquiry Feb 2013


"We need a very big cultural change around the use of data, data can be a great ally to improve patient safety". Using heart surgery as an example he said "the use of data is something I am absolutely determined to embrace in the NHS.. We need to make peer review and data transparency the main engine for change in the NHS" Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for Health, 2 July 2014
