- SUS for Commissioners
Currently patients on the Isle of Man that require treatment from services not available on the Isle of Man travel to England to receive treatment. The Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care wish to understand the rate of patients being sent to the mainland to assist in understanding what services require commissioning locally.
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 Isle of Man area.
The Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care 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)
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
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 Isle of Man area based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets.
Processing for commissioning will be conducted by Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit.
The Isle of Man is a crown-dependency but is not part of the UK and not a part of the EU or EEA. Therefore, for the Isle of Man to receive data an Adequacy Decision must be made.
The European Commission has the power to determine, on the basis of article 45 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 whether a country outside the EU offers an adequate level of data protection, whether by its domestic legislation or the international commitments it has entered into.
The European Commission has recognised the Isle of Man as providing adequate protection.
1.Improved health intelligence 2.Improved support analysis of JSNA for specific disease types 3.Improved analysis on provider performance

b. Learning from and predicting likely patient pathways for certain conditions, in order to influence early interventions and other treatments for patients.
c. Analysis of outcome measures for differential treatments, accounting for the full patient pathway.
d. Analysis to understand emergency care and linking A&E and Emergency Urgent Care Flows (EUCC).
4. Commissioning cycle support for grouping and re-costing previous activity.
5. Enables monitoring of:
a. Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care outcome indicators.
b. Financial and Non-financial validation of activity.

6. Feedback to NHS service providers on data quality at an aggregate and individual record level – only on data initially provided by the service providers.
7. 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.
8. Improved quality of services through reduced emergency readmissions, especially avoidable emergency admissions. This is achieved through mapping of frequent users of emergency services and early intervention of appropriate care.
9. 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.
10. Better understanding of the health of and the variations in health outcomes within the population to help understand local population characteristics.
11. Better understanding of contract requirements, contract execution, and required services for management of existing contracts, and to assist with identification and planning of future contracts
12. Insights into patient outcomes, and identification of the possible efficacy of outcomes-based contracting opportunities.
13. Repatriation of patients – ensuring that patients receive the most appropriate service on island enhancing the patient experience.
14. Predicative modelling to reduce IOM residents receiving off island care to reduce UK NHS patient waiting lists, benefit to IOM and UK citizens.
The Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care work with the NHS through cross border arrangements and commissioning of certain services in England that are not available in the Isle of Man. The data will support the analysis of provision and effective commissioning of services in both the Isle of Man and England.
The running of the data through the Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit standard tools was one of the major benefits that the Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit offered in terms of providing Isle of Man Department of Health and Social Care with the assurance that payments made are valid (public accountability).
Ideally this dataset would be used by the CSU to analyse and monitor the current financial and activity positions
1. Commissioner reporting:
a. Summary by provider view - plan & actuals year to date (YTD).
b. Summary by Patient Outcome Data (POD) view - plan & actuals YTD.
c. Summary by provider view - activity & finance variance by POD.
d. Planned care by provider view - activity & finance plan & actuals YTD.
e. Planned care by POD view - activity plan & actuals YTD.
