Objectives:

To use pseudonymised data to provide intelligence to support commissioning of health services. The pseudonymised data is required to ensure that analysis of health care provision can be completed to support the needs of the health profile of the population within the CCG area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets. The CCGs commission services from a range of providers covering a wide array of services. Each of the data flow categories requested supports the commissioned activity of one or more providers. The following pseudonymised datasets are required to provide intelligence to support commissioning of health services: - Secondary Uses Service (SUS) - Local Provider Flows o Acute o Ambulance o Community o Demand for Service o Diagnostic Service o Emergency Care o Experience, Quality and Outcomes o Mental Health o Other Not Elsewhere Classified o Population Data o Primary Care Services o Public Health Screening - Mental Health Minimum Data Set (MHMDS) - Mental Health Learning Disability Data Set (MHLDDS) - Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) - Maternity Services Data Set (MSDS) - Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) - Child and Young People Health Service (CYPHS) - Diagnostic Imaging Data Set (DIDS) The pseudonymised data is required to ensure that analysis of health care provision can be completed to support the needs of the health profile of the population within the CCG area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets. Processing for commissioning will be conducted by North of England Commissioning Support Unit (CSU) In addition, North of England Commissioning Support Unit also receive pseudonymised GP data, Social Care data and Consented Data. This is pseudonymised either at source or within North of England Commissioning Support Unit. This pseudonymisation tool is different to that held within the DSCRO. Also, each data source will use a variation of this tool so there is no linkage between these data until a common pseudonym has been applied via the DSCRO.

Processing:

Data must only be used as stipulated within this Data Sharing Agreement. Data Processors must only act upon specific instructions from the Data Controller. Data can only be stored at the addresses listed under storage addresses. The Data Controller and any Data Processor will only have access to records of patients of residence and registration within the CCG. Access is limited to those substantive employees with authorised user accounts used for identification and authentication. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG unless it is for the purpose of Direct Care, where it may be shared only with those health professionals who have a legitimate relationship with the patient and a legitimate reason to access the data. No record level data will be linked other than as specifically detailed within this application/agreement. Data will only be shared with those parties listed and will only be used for the purposes laid out in the application/agreement. The data to be released from NHS Digital will not be national data, but only that data relating to the specific locality of interest of the applicant. Commissioning The Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtains the following data sets: 1. SUS 2. Local Provider Flows (received directly from providers) o Acute o Ambulance o Community o Demand for Service o Diagnostic Service o Emergency Care o Experience, Quality and Outcomes o Mental Health o Other Not Elsewhere Classified o Population Data o Primary Care Services o Public Health Screening 3.

North of England CSU also receive GP Data. It is received as follows: a. Identifiable GP data is submitted to the CSU. b. The data lands in a ring fenced area for GP data only. c. There is a Data Processing Agreement in place between the GP and the CSU. A specific named individual within the CSU acts on behalf on the GP. This person has been issued with a black box. d. The individual requests a pseudonymisation key from the DSCRO to the black box. The key can only be used once. The key is specific to that GP and the pseudonymisation request. The individual does not have access to the data once it has been passed on to the CSU. e. The GP data is then pseudonymised using the black box and DSCRO issued key – the clear data is then deleted from the ring fenced area. f. The CSU are then sent the identifiable GP data with the pseudo key specific to them. 3. North of England CSU also receive a pseudonymised flow of social care data. Social Care data is received as follows: a. The social care organisation is issued with their own black box solution. b. The social care organisation requests a pseudonymisation key from the DSCRO to the black box. The key can only be used once. The key is specific to that organisation and the pseudonymisation request. c.

Objectives:

Invoice Validation Invoice validation is part of a process by which providers of care or services get paid for the work they do. Invoices are submitted to the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) so they are able to ensure that the activity claimed for each patient is their responsibility. This is done by processing and analysing Secondary User Services (SUS+) data, which is received into a secure Controlled Environment for Finance (CEfF). The SUS+ data is identifiable at the level of NHS number. The NHS number is only used to confirm the accuracy of backing-data sets and will not be used further. The legal basis for this to occur is under Section 251 of NHS Act 2006. Invoice Validation with be conducted by North of England Commissioning Support Unit (NECSU) The CCG are advised by NECSU whether payment for invoices can be made or not. Risk Stratification Risk stratification is a tool for identifying and predicting which patients are at high risk or are likely to be at high risk and prioritising the management of their care in order to prevent worse outcomes. To conduct risk stratification Secondary User Services (SUS+) data, identifiable at the level of NHS number is linked with Primary Care data (from GPs) and an algorithm is applied to produce risk scores. Risk Stratification provides focus for future demands by enabling commissioners to prepare plans for patients. Commissioners can then prepare plans for patients who may require high levels of care. Risk Stratification also enables General Practitioners (GPs) to better target intervention in Primary Care. The legal basis for this to occur is under Section 251 of NHS Act 2006 (CAG 7-04(a)). Risk Stratification will be conducted by eMBED Health Consortium. Commissioning To use pseudonymised data to provide intelligence to support the commissioning of health services. The data (containing both clinical and financial information) is analysed so that health care provision can be planned to support the needs of the population within the CCG area. The CCGs commission services from a range of providers covering a wide array of services. Each of the data flow categories requested supports the commissioned activity of one or more providers. The following pseudonymised datasets are required to provide intelligence to support commissioning of health services: - Secondary Uses Service (SUS+) - Local Provider Flows o Acute o Ambulance o Community o Demand for Service o Diagnostic Service o Emergency Care o Experience, Quality and Outcomes o Mental Health o Other Not Elsewhere Classified o Population Data o Primary Care Services o Public Health Screening - Mental Health Minimum Data Set (MHMDS) - Mental Health Learning Disability Data Set (MHLDDS) - Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) - Maternity Services Data Set (MSDS) - Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) - Child and Young People Health Service (CYPHS) - Diagnostic Imaging Data Set (DIDS) - Community Services Data Set (CSDS) - National Cancer Waiting Times Data Set (NCWT) The pseudonymised data is required to for the following purposes: § Population health management: • Understanding the interdependency of care services • Targeting care more effectively • Using value as the redesign principle § Data Quality and Validation – allowing data quality checks on the submitted data § Thoroughly investigating the needs of the population, to ensure the right services are available for individuals when and where they need them § Understanding cohorts of residents who are at risk of becoming users of some of the more expensive services, to better understand and manage those needs § Monitoring population health and care interactions to understand where people may slip through the net, or where the provision of care may be being duplicated § Modelling activity across all data sets to understand how services interact with each other, and to understand how changes in one service may affect flows through another § Service redesign § Health Needs Assessment – identification of underlying disease prevalence within the local population § Patient stratification and predictive modelling - to identify specific patients at risk of requiring hospital admission and other avoidable factors such as risk of falls, computed using algorithms executed against linked de-identified data, and identification of future service delivery models The pseudonymised data is required to ensure that analysis of health care provision can be completed to support the needs of the health profile of the population within the CCG area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets. Processing for commissioning will be conducted by eMBED Health Consortium and Scarborough and Ryedale CCG.

Expected Benefits:

Invoice Validation 1. Financial validation of activity 2. CCG Budget control 3. Commissioning and performance management 4. Meeting commissioning objectives without compromising patient confidentiality 5. The avoidance of misappropriation of public funds to ensure the ongoing delivery of patient care Risk Stratification Risk stratification promotes improved case management in primary care and will lead to the following benefits being realised: 1. Improved planning by better understanding patient flows through the healthcare system, thus allowing commissioners to design appropriate pathways to improve patient flow and allowing commissioners to identify priorities and identify plans to address these. 2. Improved quality of services through reduced emergency readmissions, especially avoidable emergency admissions. This is achieved through mapping of frequent users of emergency services thus allowing early intervention. 3. Improved access to services by identifying which services may be in demand but have poor access, and from this identify areas where improvement is required. 4. Supports the commissioner to meets its requirement to reduce premature mortality in line with the CCG Outcome Framework by allowing for more targeted intervention in primary care. 5. Better understanding of local population characteristics through analysis of their health and healthcare outcomes All of the above lead to improved patient experience through more effective commissioning of services.

Processing:

Data must only be used as stipulated within this Data Sharing Agreement. Data Processors must only act upon specific instructions from the Data Controller. Data can only be stored at the addresses listed under storage addresses. The Data Controller and any Data Processor will only have access to records of patients of residence and registration within the CCG. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG unless it is for the purpose of Direct Care, where it may be shared only with those health professionals who have a legitimate relationship with the patient and a legitimate reason to access the data. All access to data is managed under Roles-Based Access Controls No patient level data will be linked other than as specifically detailed within this agreement. Data will only be shared with those parties listed and will only be used for the purposes laid out in the application/agreement. The data to be released from NHS Digital will not be national data, but only that data relating to the specific locality and that data required by the applicant. NHS Digital reminds all organisations party to this agreement of the need to comply with the Data Sharing Framework Contract requirements, including those regarding the use (and purposes of that use) by “Personnel” (as defined within the Data Sharing Framework Contract ie: employees, agents and contractors of the Data Recipient who may have access to that data) The DSCRO (part of NHS Digital) will apply Type 2 objections before any identifiable data leaves the DSCRO. CCGs should work with general practices within their CCG to help them fulfil data controller responsibilities regarding flow of identifiable data into risk stratification tools. Segregation Where the Data Processor and/or the Data Controller hold both identifiable and pseudonymised data, the data will be held separately so data cannot be linked. All access to data is auditable by NHS Digital. Data for the purpose of Invoice Validation is kept within the CEfF, and only used by staff properly trained and authorised for the activity. Only CEfF staff are able to access data in the CEfF and only CEfF staff operate the invoice validation process within the CEfF. Data flows directly in to the CEfF from the DSCRO and from the providers – it does not flow through any other processors. Invoice Validation Data Processor 1- North of England CSU 1. Identifiable SUS+ Data is obtained from the SUS+ Repository to the Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO). 2. The DSCRO pushes a one-way data flow of SUS+ data into the Controlled Environment for Finance (CEfF) in the CSU. 3. The CSU carry out the following processing activities within the CEfF for invoice validation purposes: a. Validating that the Clinical Commissioning Group is responsible for payment for the care of the individual by using SUS+ and/or backing flow data. b. Once the backing information is received, this will be checked against national NHS and local commissioning policies as well as being checked against system access and reports provided by NHS Digital to confirm the payments are: i. In line with Payment by Results tariffs ii. are in relation to a patient registered with a CCG GP or resident within the CCG area. iii. The health care provided should be paid by the CCG in line with CCG guidance.  4. The CCG are notified that the invoice has been validated and can be paid. Any discrepancies or non-validated invoices are investigated and resolved between XXXX CEfF team and the provider meaning that no identifiable data needs to be sent to the CCG. The CCG only receives notification to pay and management reporting detailing the total quantum of invoices received pending, processed etc. Risk Stratification 1. Identifiable SUS+ data is obtained from the SUS Repository to the Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO). 2. Data quality management and standardisation of data is completed by the DSCRO and the data identifiable at the level of NHS number is transferred securely to eMBED, who hold the SUS+ data within the secure Data Centre on N3. 3. Identifiable GP Data is securely sent from the GP system to eMBED. 4. SUS+ data is linked to GP data in the risk stratification tool by the data processor. 5. As part of the risk stratification processing activity, GPs have access to the risk stratification tool within the data processor, which highlights patients with whom the GP has a legitimate relationship and have been classed as at risk. The only identifier available to GPs is the NHS numbers of their own patients. Any further identification of the patients will be completed by the GP on their own systems. 6. Once eMBED has completed the processing, the CCG can access the online system via a secure connection to access the data pseudonymised at patient level. Commissioning The Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtains the following data sets: 1. SUS+ 2. Local Provider Flows (received directly from providers) a. Acute b. Ambulance c.

See patient journeys for pathways or service design, re-design and de-commissioning. b. Check recorded activity against contracts or invoices and facilitate discussions with providers. c. Undertake population health management d. Undertake data quality and validation checks e. Thoroughly investigate the needs of the population f. Understand cohorts of residents who are at risk g. Conduct Health Needs Assessments 3. North of England CSU then pass the processed, pseudonymised data to both eMBED and the CCG. 4. eMBED receives the Pseudonymised data for the addition of derived fields, linkage of data sets and analysis. Linked data is limited to the following to give a rich and broad clinical journey allowing improved care planning, patient care and commissioning: 4. Allowed linkage is between the data sets contained within point 1. 5. eMBED Health Consortium then pass the processed, pseudonymised and linked data to the CCG. 6. The CCG analyse the data received from eMBED Health Consortium and North of England Commissioning Support Unit to see patient journeys for pathways or service design, re-design and de-commissioning. 7. Aggregation of required data for CCG management use will be completed by North of England Commissioning Support Unit, eMBED Health Consortium or the CCG as instructed by the CCG. 8. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG and will only be shared within the CCG on a need to know basis, as per the purposes stipulated within the Data Sharing Agreement. External aggregated reports only with small number suppression can be shared as set out within NHS Digital guidance applicable to each data set. 9. The CCG securely transfer Pseudonymised data back to the provider to: a) confirm how patients are reported in SUS, and how the commissioner can reliably group these patients into categories for points of delivery; b) allow for granular data validation whereby a commissioner may query the SUS record, and need to pass it back to the provider for checking; and c) to allow the provider to undertake further analysis of a cohort of their patients as requested and specified by the commissioner. Data Processor 3 –Scarborough and Ryedale CCG (Partnership Commissioning Unit) 1. North of England and Yorkshire Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) receives a flow of data identifiable at the level of NHS number for Mental Health (MHSDS, MHMDS, MHLDDS), Maternity (MSDS), Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), Child and Young People’s Health (CYPHS) Community Services Data Set (CSDS) National Cancer Waiting Times Data Set (NCWT) for commissioning purposes. 2. Data quality management and pseudonymisation of data is completed by DSCRO and the pseudonymised data is then passed securely to North of England CSU for the addition of derived fields, linkage of data sets and analysis. 3. North of England CSU then passes the processed, pseudonymised and linked data to the Partnership Commissioning Unit (PCU), hosted by Scarborough and Ryedale CCG. 4. The PCU utilises the data for monitoring for the CCGs supported by the PCU against their contracts and national standards. They also monitor the provider data against NHS England reports and NHS Digital data to be able to, challenge and areas of issue/mistake by using the data sets and monitor data quality. Analysis is provided on lower level practice reporting and monitoring, age profiling, early intervention reporting, and unify submission commissioner return, seven day follow ups and crisis gate keeping. There is no linkage with SUS data other what is stated above within the application which takes place to give a complete patient pathway analysis. Only substantive employees have access to the data. 5. Aggregated reports only with small number suppression can be shared with the CCG from the PCU.

Outputs:

As a result of the aforementioned processing activities, eMBED will provide a number of outputs which are securely provided to the CCGs in the appropriate format at pseudonymised level. Where datasets have been linked, the CCG will receive the outputs of analysis instead of the direct data, however it may also be necessary to provide linked data at row level to CCGs (pseudonymised record level data). eMBED will provide aggregated reports only with small number suppression to CCG’s stakeholders e.g. GP practices, Local Authorities. Where such data is provided there are safeguards in place to ensure that the receiving organisation has recognised the required safety controls required, i.e. signed agreements from the receiving organisation regarding compliance with data protection and the agreed use of the data. eMBED will flow outputs, mostly in the form of reports to the CCG stakeholders. CCGs may also provide their stakeholders with the anonymised outputs. The anonymisation will be achieved by aggregating records and using small number suppression in line with HES analysis guidance. eMBED provides a range of Business Intelligence functions and outputs as specified by the CCG. These outputs can be presented in a variety of different ways to a variety of different users, from highly aggregated graphical “dashboards” to very low-level tabular analysis, and everything in between with the opportunity to drill-down into the detail. Provision of aggregated reports only with small number suppression data to CCG stakeholders allows for analysis at an appropriate level, revealing potentially useful but previously unrecognised commissioning insights/trends whilst mitigating against the risk of re-identification of individuals 1.

The PCU produces a number of reports which provide a summary (not patient level data) which are shared back to the CCG, the following are a list of these: IAPT Dataset Mandated national contract KPIs: Completion of IAPT Minimum Data Set outcome data IAPT Access Times – 6 & 18 wk (finished treatment) Local CCG and NHSE information and KPIs: Number of Referrals Number Entering Treatment Monthly Prevalence rate Number completing treatment Number moving to recovery Number not at caseness Monthly Recovery rate Reliable Improvement rate IAPT Access Times – 6 & 18 wk (entering treatment) Waiting times for treatment and those still waiting Clearance times Local CCG monitoring: Appointments, cancellations and DNA rate analysis Data Quality Referral rates and activity by GP Practice and Age band Mental Health Dataset Mandated national contract KPIs : Completion of valid NHS number field Completion of Ethnic coding Under 16 bed days on Adult wards (Never event) Local CCG and NHSE information and KPIs: Gatekeeping admissions 7 day follow-up hospital discharges EIP access rates Eating disorders Local CCG monitoring: Referral rates by GP Practice and Age band CPA monitoring inc settled accommodation and employment CPA reviews within 12 months, step up/down etc Bed days, admissions and discharges Delayed discharges Detentions LD/ MH/CAMHS ward stays Bed locality (distance out of area) Contacts and DNA rates Cluster monitoring and red rules Data quality The PCU will also share aggregated reports only with small number suppression back to the provider. The PCU shares aggregated reports only with small number suppression outputs with NHS England for national reporting and to support any issues that need rising in relation to data quality.

Processing:

1. North of England Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) and Yorkshire Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtain a flow of data identifiable at the level of NHS number for Mental Health (MHSDS, MHMDS, and MHLDDS), Maternity (MSDS), Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), Child and Young People’s Health (CYPHS) and Diagnostic Imaging (DIDS) for commissioning purposes. 2. Data quality management, minimisation and pseudonymisation of data is completed by North of England and Yorkshire DSCRO and the pseudonymised data is then passed securely to North of England CSU. 3. North of England CSU then securely transfer the processed, pseudonymised and linked data to eMBED. 4. eMBED receives the data from North of England CSU and carries out further data processing, addition of derived fields, linkage to other data sets and analysis. Linked data would include the following to give a rich and broad clinical journey allowing improved care planning, patient care and commissioning: • Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with IAPT • Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with SUS • Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) with SUS • Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DIDs) with SUS • Maternity (MSDS) with SUS • Children and Young People’s Health Services (CYPHS) with SUS 5. Aggregation of required data for CCG management use is completed by eMBED or the CCG as instructed by the CCG. 6. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG and will only be shared within the CCG on a need to know basis, as per the purposes stipulated within the Data Sharing Agreement. External aggregated reports only with small number suppression in line with the HES analysis guide can be shared.

Sensitive: Sensitive

When: 2016/12 — 2017/02.

Repeats: Ongoing

Legal basis: Section 251 approval is in place for the flow of identifiable data

Categories: Identifiable

Datasets:

  • SUS (Accident & Emergency, Inpatient and Outpatient data)

Objectives:

To utilise SUS data Identifiable at the level of NHS number to provide risk stratification information to the CCG and GP practices.

Expected Benefits:

Risk Stratification promotes improved case management in primary care which is expected to lead to the following benefits being realised : 1. Improved planning by better understanding the patient flows through the healthcare system, thus allowing commissioners to design appropriate pathways to improve patient flow and identify plans to address these. 2. Improved quality of services through reduced emergency readmissions, especially avoidable emergency admissions. This is achieved via the mapping of frequent users of emergency services and the early intervention of appropriate care. 3. Improved access to services by identifying which services may be in demand but have poor access and from this identify areas where improvement is required. 4. Potentially reduce premature mortality by more targeted intervention in primary care, which supports the commissioner to meet its requirement to reduce premature mortality in line with the CCG Outcome Framework.

Outputs:

To provide risk profiling, calculated on activity data from secondary and primary care. As part of the risk stratification processing activity detailed above, the GP have access to the eMBED Dr Foster tool for reports which presents to them their registered patients and associated risk score. The only identifier to be provided to the GP is the NHS number of their registered patient. The GP can access the eMBED Dr Foster tool which is a secure portal at any time which will support MDT discussions around ongoing patient care. The GP would be able to copy and paste the NHS number presented on screen to any other program and then save it, in order to maintain a risk register of their patients and perform the key aspects of this risk stratification role. CCG staff who have been granted access to the secure portal can only access aggregated output / reports. eMBED staff who have been granted access to the secure portal can only access aggregated suppressed data at GP practice level.

Processing:

Processing of SUS Data for the purposes of Risk Stratification includes landing, processing, staging and publication. DSCRO North England – part of HSCIC - receive a flow of identifiable SUS data for the CCG from the SUS Repository. 1. Landing Prior to the release of SUS data by DSCRO Yorkshire, Type 2 objections will be applied and the relevant patients data redacted. DSCRO North of England securely transfer the SUS data identifiable at the level of NHS number to Dr Foster Ltd. Data is landed and processed in an access restricted server located at Dr Foster’s Head Office (Dorset Rise, London). The SUS dataset for Risk Stratification purposes is recorded on the Dr Foster Ltd Data Asset Register (DAR) and allocated a unique Asset Tag and classification; in addition a Date of Destruction is recorded along with other contractual requirements relating to the publication of these data. Once the data has been secured within the database the original SUS PCD data file is securely destroyed using CESG approved shredding software which produces a certificate of destruction. The certificate is referenced on the Data Asset Register. Only named individuals have access to process the data. All users undertake regular IG training, in line with IGT & ISO 27001:2013 requirements. 2. Processing (ETL) Data is processed on a monthly basis, which follows Dr Foster’s audited ETL process. 2.1. Cleaning and quality checks are undertaken. 2.2. Creation of Risk Stratification dataset. 2.3. Risk Stratification dataset processed through Dr Foster’s Risk Stratification Algorithm to produce a Risk Stratified dataset 3. Staging Data is landed to a secure staging area for final quality checks using the Dr Foster Analysis Toolkit in an offline Q/A environment. A named QA analyst undertakes the quality checks. 4. Publication Outputs are available to eMBED, the CCG and the GP practices via the eMBED Dr Foster Toolkit. Access to the toolkit is via role-based access. All usage of its tools is audited. Record level data, identifiable at the level of NHS number, is only available to named individuals within the GP Practices for their own patients only who have a legitimate relationship with the CCG or where an individual working within a GP Practice has the authorisation of their Caldicott Guardian to access patient level information, including sensitive items, for the purposes of conducting Risk Stratification for case finding. (The GP user is prompted to re-enter their eMBED Dr Foster Tool password in order to view patient NHS Numbers.) The GP will not have direct access to any underlying patient level SUS data. The only data that is visible via the eMBED Dr Foster Tool that is directly taken from SUS is the patient NHS number, date of last admission, and number of admissions in the last year. An audit trail of the data accessed is reported on a monthly basis to GP practices and the GPs’ Caldicott Guardian.) The CCG has an aggregated data view only of Risk Stratification for commissioning purposes based on their related GP practices. eMBED CSU can access the eMBED Dr Foster Tool but only have access to aggregated suppressed data at GP practice level. eMBED Business Intelligence (BI) staff will be active in providing added value, additional support and further analysis to CCG customers where required and therefore require an aggregated output of the data. No record-level SUS is provided to any other organisation.

Objectives:

Invoice Validation As an approved Controlled Environment for Finance (CEfF), North of England CSU receives SUS data identifiable at the level of NHS number according to S.251 CAG 7-07(a) and (c)/2013, to undertake invoice validation on behalf of the CCG. NHS number is only used to confirm the accuracy of backing-data sets and will not be shared outside of the CEfF. The CCG are advised by the CSU whether payment for invoices can be made or not. Risk Stratification To use SUS data identifiable at the level of NHS number according to S.251 CAG 7-04(a)/2013 (and Primary Care Data) for the purpose of Risk Stratification. Risk Stratification provides a forecast of future demand by identifying high risk patients. This enables commissioners to initiate proactive management plans for patients that are potentially high service users. Risk Stratification enables GPs to better target intervention in Primary Care. Commissioning (Pseudonymised) – SUS and Local Flows To use pseudonymised data to provide intelligence to support commissioning of health services. The pseudonymised data is required to ensure that analysis of health care provision can be completed to support the needs of the health profile of the population within the CCG area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets. The CCGs commission services from a range of providers covering a wide array of services. Each of the data flow categories requested supports the commissioned activity of one or more providers. Commissioning (Pseudonymised) – Mental Health, Maternity, IAPT, CYPHS and DIDS To use pseudonymised data for the following datasets to provide intelligence to support commissioning of health services : - Mental Health Minimum Data Set (MHMDS) - Mental Health Learning Disability Data Set (MHLDDS) - Mental Health Services Data Set (MHSDS) - Maternity Services Data Set (MSDS) - Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) - Child and Young People Health Service (CYPHS) - Diagnostic Imaging Data Set (DIDS) The pseudonymised data is required to ensure that analysis of health care provision can be completed to support the needs of the health profile of the population within the CCG area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets.

Processing:

Invoice Validation SUS Data is obtained from the SUS Repository to DSCRO. 1. DSCRO pushes a one-way data flow of SUS data into the Controlled Environment for Finance (CEfF) in the North of England CSU. 2. The CSU carry out the following processing activities within the CEfF for invoice validation purposes: a. Checking the individual is registered to a particular Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and associated with an invoice from the national SUS data flow to validate the corresponding record in the backing data flow b. Once the backing information is received, this will be checked against national NHS and local commissioning policies as well as being checked against system access and reports provided by NHS Digital to confirm the payments are: i. In line with Payment by Results tariffs ii. are in relation to a patient registered with a CCG GP or resident within the CCG area. iii. The health care provided should be paid by the CCG in line with CCG guidance.  3. The CCG are notified that the invoice has been validated and can be paid. Any discrepancies or non-validated invoices are investigated and resolved between the CSU CEfF team and the provider meaning that no identifiable data needs to be sent to the CCG. The CCG only receives notification to pay and management reporting detailing the total quantum of invoices received pending, processed etc. Risk Stratification Data Processor 2 - eMBED 1. Identifiable SUS data is obtained from the SUS Repository to the Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO). 2. Data quality management and standardisation of data is completed by the DSCRO and the data identifiable at the level of NHS number is transferred securely to eMBED, who hold the SUS data within eMBED secure storage. 3. Identifiable GP Data is securely sent from the GP system to eMBED. 4. SUS data is linked to GP data in the risk stratification tool by the data processor. 5. As part of the risk stratification processing activity, GPs have access to the risk stratification tool within the data processor, which highlights patients with whom the GP has a legitimate relationship and have been classed as at risk. The only identifier derived from SUS available to GPs is the NHS number of their own patients. Any further identification of the patients is derived from the GP data sourced from their own systems. 6. eMBED who hosts the risk stratification system that holds SUS data is limited to those administrative staff with authorised user accounts used for identification and authentication. 7. Once eMBED has completed the processing, the CCG can access the online system via a secure network connection to access the data pseudonymised at patient level. Commissioning (Pseudonymised) – SUS and Local Flows Data Processor 2 - eMBED 1. Yorkshire Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office / North England Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtains a flow of SUS identifiable data for the CCG from the SUS Repository. Yorkshire / North of England DSCRO also obtains identifiable local provider data for the CCG directly from Providers. 2.

North of England CSU then pass the processed, pseudonymised data to both eMBED and the CCG. 4. eMBED receives the Pseudonymised data for the addition of derived fields, linkage of data sets and analysis. Linked data is limited to the following to give a rich and broad clinical journey allowing improved care planning, patient care and commissioning: - SUS data and Local Provider data at pseudonymised level - Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with SUS - Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) with SUS - Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DIDs) with SUS - Maternity (MSDS) with SUS - Children and Young People’s Health Services (CYPHS) with Local provider data - Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with Local provider data - Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) with Local provider data - Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DIDs) with Local provider data - Maternity (MSDS) with Local provider data - Children and Young People’s Health Services (CYPHS) with Local provider data 5. eMBED securely transfer pseudonymised outputs for management use by the CCG. 6. The CCG receive Pseudonymised data from both North of England CSU and eMBED. The CCG then analyse the data to see patient journeys for pathways or service design, re-design and de-commissioning. 7. Aggregation of required data for CCG management use will be completed by the North of England CSU, eMBED or the CCG as instructed by the CCG. 8. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG and will only be shared within the CCG on a need to know basis, as per the purposes stipulated within the Data Sharing Agreement. External aggregated reports only with small number suppression can be shared. 9. The CCG securely transfer Pseudonymised data back to the provider to: a) confirm how patients are reported in SUS, and how the commissioner can reliably group these patients into categories for points of delivery; b) allow for granular data validation whereby a commissioner may query the SUS record, and need to pass it back to the provider for checking; and c) to allow the provider to undertake further analysis of a cohort of their patients as requested and specified by the commissioner. The data transferred to the provider is only that which relates directly to the data previously uploaded by that particular provider. Commissioning (Pseudonymised) – Mental Health, MSDS, IAPT, CYPHS and DIDS 1. North of England Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) and Yorkshire Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtain a flow of data identifiable at the level of NHS number for Mental Health (MHSDS, MHMDS, and MHLDDS), Maternity (MSDS), Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT), Child and Young People’s Health (CYPHS) and Diagnostic Imaging (DIDS) for commissioning purposes. 2. Data quality management, minimisation and pseudonymisation of data is completed by North of England and DSCRO and the pseudonymised data is then passed securely to North of England CSU. 3. North of England CSU then securely transfer the processed, pseudonymised and linked data to eMBED. 4. eMBED receives the data from North of England CSU and carries out further data processing, addition of derived fields, linkage to other data sets and analysis. Linked data would include the following to give a rich and broad clinical journey allowing improved care planning, patient care and commissioning: - Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with IAPT - Mental Health (MHSDS, MHLDDS, MHMDS) with SUS - Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) with SUS - Diagnostic Imaging Dataset (DIDs) with SUS - Maternity (MSDS) with SUS - Children and Young People’s Health Services (CYPHS) with SUS 5. Aggregation of required data for CCG management use is completed by eMBED or the CCG as instructed by the CCG. 6. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the CCG and will only be shared within the CCG on a need to know basis, as per the purposes stipulated within the Data Sharing Agreement. External aggregated reports only with small number suppression can be shared. Data Processor 3 –Scarborough and Ryedale CCG (Partnership Commissioning Unit) 1.
