All you need to understand what excellence looks like
With improvement front of mind for all healthcare organisations, understanding how you’re performing is key to informed decision-making.
Whether you’re a clinical commissioning group (CCG), a trust or division, or looking to understand performance in a particular specialism or indicator, our healthcare intelligence programmes feature benchmarking tools which show how you compare on quality, safety and efficiency, either in comparison to peer services or to your own gold-standard.
We’ve applied over 25 years of NHS data expertise and knowledge to create our unique cloud-based analytics programmes, iCompare and iCommissioner, used across the UK and globally to provide healthcare organisations with the information they need for effective service planning and driving successful improvement initiatives.
iCompare provides an accurate view of performance, risks and opportunities by combining data from different sources, giving you the evidence you need to drive change and help build a culture of transparency and openness. iCommissioner helps CCGs to understand performance and the level of commissioned activity compared to what local populations expect to see.
We work with the British Association of Day Surgery (BADS) to promote day surgery and our programmes include this data as a benchmarked element of performance management. Our intelligence programme is further complemented by tools such as our data analysis toolkit, mortality profiling, the monitoring of specific conditions, emergency care admissions and more.
Constantly improving quality of care
|What is it||A cloud-based performance monitoring and benchmarking system.||A cloud-based analytics and reporting service that uses nationally derived data, allowing clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to externally compare and track performance over time.|
|How it helps||iCompare puts actionable benchmarking insight at your fingertips by combining data from different sources and allowing you to create your own indicators and scorecards. It quickly cuts through reams of data to identify new trends and variations in performance, enabling you to react immediately and undertake investigations easily.||Enabling CCGs to understand the amount of activity commissioned for their local populations, showing whether CCG funding is appropriate and whether it is being spent in the right places.|
Monitoring patient flows in the local health system to identify inappropriate pathways and assess their financial impact.
Evaluating the appropriateness of the investment in the range of services being commissioned - based on programme budget categories, treatment function or condition benchmarked with external peers.
