It is well known that good quality information is a driver of performance for clinical teams and helps ensure the right services and best possible care is provided to patients.
A ‘Clinical Dashboard’ is a toolset developed to provide clinicians with the relevant and timely information they need to support daily decision making that improve quality of patient care. The dashboard gives our clinicians easy access to the wealth of NHS data that is being captured locally, in a visual and usable format, whenever they need it.
At its core it will display locally relevant information alongside applicable national metrics, for example it will identify targets that are set by our Regulators and how the Trust performs compared to those goals. It allows us to develop a yardstick from which we can monitor how we perform against the national and locally agreed standards of care. The development of clinical dashboards was a key recommendation from both Lord Darzi’s Next Stage Review (NSR) and the Health Informatics Review.
