Already confirmed are presentations from Emily Weitzel on the Kent Integrated Dataset, and Joanne Hillier and Melanie Teulet on the approach to using experience and outcomes data at HERE, Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Service.
The Kent Integrated Dataset comprises individual-level linked electronic health records from the following services located in Kent and Medway: primary care providers (including out-of-hours providers and walk-in centres), community health providers, mental health services, acute hospitals (including accident and emergency, inpatient and outpatient episodes), public health services, adult social care and palliative hospices. The dataset includes records of every interaction between residents of Kent and Medway and these services, with some exceptions: (a) primary care records for a subset of patients who are registered with GP surgeries that are not yet signed-up to provide data. As of March 2017, 90% of primary care providers have agreed to submit data, with the remainder expected to join by the end of 2017, (b) care delivered in acute hospitals that is not funded through national NHS tariffs, such as privately funded care, and (c) records of Kent and Medway residents’ interactions with health and care providers that are located outside of Kent and Medway.
Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Service is a collaboration between HERE (a not-for-profit social enterprise owned by GP’s and primary care staff), YMCA Downslink Group, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Mind. Together they deliver a primary care mental health service to both adults (including IAPT), and more recently children and young people. The Wellbeing Service is a member of the CYP IAPT partnership for Brighton and Hove. The use of experience and outcome data has been embedded in the service for adult IAPT over the past 6 years, and the collaboration has been using their learning to inform their use of data in their work with children and young people. This data is flowed to NHS Digital within the Mental Health Services Dataset.
