On 2 January 2018, Healthcare Leader News published an article written by Rick Stern of the Primary Care Foundation that gives an overview of a project we were involved in last year when NHS England commissioned a stock take of primary care in the area.

General practice captures more data than elsewhere in the NHS. The aim was to bring together all the available information in one place, so that each practice can see how it is doing compared with its peers on indicators it feels are important. In turn, practice-level data could be aggregated to inform conversations with other local practices, across clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and to support the emerging sustainability and transformation plans (STPs).

This project came to an end in June 2017, but One Care is continuing to develop our thinking around this as part of our analytics work stream. Our Medical Director Dr Jacob Lee commented: “As well as carrying out a refresh of this process, we are building our own business intelligence platform, looking at patient stratification and analysing telephony data. We are also engaging and supporting practices to standardise their data quality and management. We are building a culture that recognises the role information has to play in the transformation of general practice.”
