Methods Stethoscope™ has now been refreshed to the M6 release of HES/SUS data for 16/17, this brings most of our indicators up to September 16/17.
We've been busy building Advanced Analytics over the last few months, and are excited to publish 4 outcomes in this release:
Length of Stay
Market Share, and a HES Data Explorer are currently in development and due for release during January 2017.
Built in Tableau, Advanced Analytics gives you the ability to view the specific outcomes guiding you through from understanding how your organisation is different at a macro level down to the granular detail at micro level with the ability to ask questions of the system to answer any hypothesis you may have.
Advanced Analytics provides you with a wide variety of filters allowing for cross drill through each outcome to easily understand areas of concern, visualised using bubble plots, Tree Maps, Funnel Plots, and many other views we allow you to easily understand any variation.
If you would like to add Advanced Analytics to your Stethoscope™ subscription, then please get in touch at email@example.com.
This release also contains many newly created indicators:
Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratio (HSMR)
Babies coded as well, with a secondary diagnosis not expected (Rate per 1,000 Episodes)
Episodes with a maternal, fetal or new born complication of care (Rate per 1,000 Episodes)
Percentage difference between A&E attendances coded as admitted and Inpatient admissions coded as admitted via A&E
Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from an elective spell in hospital (Indirectly standardised)
Emergency readmissions within 2 days of discharge from an elective spell in hospital (Indirectly standardised)
Emergency readmissions within 30 days of discharge from a non-elective spell in hospital (Indirectly standardised)
Emergency readmissions within 2 days of discharge from a non-elective spell in hospital (Indirectly standardised)
Uptake of cervical cancer screening
Proportion of older people (65 and over) who were offered rehabilitation following discharge from acute or community hospital
Proportion of older people (65 and over) who were still at home after 91 days after discharge from hospital into reablement/rehabilitation services
Percentage of patients with a primary diagnosis of stroke that spend 90% or more of their stay on a stroke unit
Permanent admissions of older people (aged 65 and over) to residential nursing care homes, per 100,000 population
As you can see this list includes our replication of the Hospital Standardised Mortality Ratio (HSMR) indicator. This can be broken down by a number of different filters within Stethoscope™ and the QlikView drill down area. In addition, and due to the increasing number of NHS frameworks surfaced in Stethoscope™, we have introduced an NHS CCG Framework domain. This now holds the GPIM, Commissioning for Value and Outcomes Indicator Set Domains.
We’ve also been busy bringing improvements and enhancements to My View, and we have been squashing a few minor bugs at the same time.
And finally...We have added functionality which allows users to set individual alert targets against any indicator within Stethoscope™. This functionality is accessed via the ‘Manage Account’ area, which also has a new look to it. Then, at each refresh of the data, you will receive any personal alerts alongside the normal alerts in Stethoscope™ Alerts view.
As always your comments and feedback on these will be crucial as there is a lot of new content and only you can tell us if we are getting it right, so please get in touch.
Wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy new year from all the team at Methods Analytics.
