New features in the General Practice Intelligence Dashboard
One Care is pleased to have launched three new features on the General Practice Intelligence Dashboard, making data more accessible for practices.
Building on the success of the COVID-19 vaccination dashboards that practices and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) have been using to monitor the vaccination uptake among their population since the programme started in November 2020, a third dose vaccination dashboard is now live. This enables practices to track and monitor the number of patients who have taken up a booster or third primary dose vaccination.
The dashboard also allows practices to view the data by cohort (age or clinical vulnerability), and to filter by deprivation and ethnicity, providing a greater insight into the patients who have and haven’t taken up the vaccination.
Additionally, One Care has launched a brand-new feature: activity graphics, designed predominantly for use on social media.
The idea for this feature has come directly from discussions with several practices. It is hoped these graphics will enable practices to publicise and demonstrate their volume of face-to-face appointments, phone calls and COVID vaccines. Practices can adjust the time frame where necessary, giving their patients a greater understanding of the demand, traffic and success within each practice.
One Care has also successfully redeveloped the flu page on the dashboard, meaning practices and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) can monitor the uptake of the 2021/22 season influenza vaccine in their populations.
Cohorts reported on, which will be updated twice weekly, include those aged 65+, 50-64 and 2-3, as well as the clinically extremely vulnerable and clinical risk groups.
Commenting on the new dashboard features, One Care’s Head of Business Intelligence Rhys Lewis said: “We are really proud to create and release these three updates to our General Practice Intelligence Dashboards.
“Following the success of last year’s flu vaccine page, we have relaunched this for the 2021/22 campaign with a similar simple design but further detail on uptake in clinical risk groups and by level of deprivation. Similarly, we have refreshed the Covid-19 vaccination dashboard to include booster doses. All of this information can be used to celebrate the success of vaccination programmes to date and highlight inequalities and opportunities to improve population coverage and maximise income.
“The update I am most excited about is our new practice infographics. This dashboard gives practices quick and easy access to infographics that can be used to represent the brilliant work they are doing. By taking a simple screenshot, practices can share these graphics using social media or even on the screens in their waiting areas.
“We are always looking to develop new features to assist our practices and the latest ones should make a real difference in making the data more accessible and detailed which is our ultimate aim, so huge credit to everyone behind the scenes for their efforts.”
