Objectives:

Risk Stratification To use SUS data identifiable at the level of NHS number according to S.251 CAG 7-04(a) (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 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. 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. 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 the HSCIC will not be national data, but only that data relating to the specific locality of interest of the applicant.

Expected Benefits:

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 and 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 reduced premature mortality by more targeted intervention in primary care, which supports the commissioner to meets its requirement to reduce premature mortality in line with the CCG Outcome Framework. 5. Better understanding of the health of and the variations in health outcomes within the population to help understand local population characteristics. All of the above lead to improved patient experience through more effective commissioning of services. Pseudonymised – SUS and Local Flows 1.

Objectives:

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 Arden and GEM CSU 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) - Community Services Data Set (CSDS) - Diagnostic Imaging Data Set (DIDS) - National Cancer Waiting Times (CWT) 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 - Data Processor 1 – Arden and GEM CSU conduct Risk Stratification as instructed by the CCG. The CSU also processes SUS, Local Provider flows, mental health, IAPT, MSDS, CYPHS, CSDS, CWT and DIDS for the purpose of commissioning. - Data Processor 2 - Greater Manchester Shared Services (GMSS) have taken BI services in house and are now hosted by Oldham CCG. AGEM CSU flow data to a small team within GMSS. Access to the data is restricted to this team who access and manage the data. These BI services were previously provided by North West CSU. GMSS deliver a range of services including; - effective use of resources; - data quality; - information governance; - market management; - provider contract & performance management; To enable GMSS to support these services a team within the GMSS have controlled access to SUS data at a pseudonymised level. Access to the data is controlled by AGEM CSU using users’ roles to ensure only appropriate users gain access to pseudonymised data. Data can then be used for reporting to support the range of services being offered to CCGs, and CCGs receive aggregate level reports from GMSS. GMSS staff are separate from Oldham CCG staff and accordingly have separate functions and roles. - Data Processor 3 - Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA) provide support for a range of quality improvement programmes including the NW Advancing Quality Programme. They will identify cohorts of patients within specific disease groups for further analysis to help drive quality improvements across the region. - Data Processor 4 - The Academic Health Sciences Network (Utilisation Management Team) receive Pseudonymised SUS data for Greater Manchester patients. They analyse the data to look at processes rather than patients, for example, A&E performance, process times, bed days as well as ‘deep dives’ to support clinical reviews for CCGs. Advancing Quality Alliance (AQuA) and the Academic Health Science Network are hosted by Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust who are the legal entity for both.

Expected Benefits:

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.

Objectives:

The One Commissioning Organisation (OCO) brings together NHS Bury CCG and Bury Metropolitan Borough Council and provides integrated health and social care commissioning across the borough. The OCO has a single commissioning strategy, integrated governance, decision making and is primarily focused on commissioning for outcomes. A key enabler for the OCO is to be able to share data, intelligence and analysis. Being able to link data from across the health and care systems (including Adult Social Care data) will provide a much better understanding of the care that the local population is receiving and the interactions that individuals have with different parts of the system. Having access to comprehensive health data will support the programmes and services being designed and delivered across Bury ensuring they are joined up, efficient and delivering a high standard of quality of care, allowing the delivery of person centered care which improves population health outcomes. Sharing health and care pseudonymised data will allow both the CCG and local authority to plan, commission and monitor services together to improve the support and treatment provided to people through an integrated health and care system. 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 and care 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) - Community Services Data Set (CSDS) - Diagnostic Imaging Data Set (DIDS) - National Cancer Waiting Times Monitoring Data Set (CWT) - Civil Registries Data (CRD) (Births) - Civil Registries Data (CRD) (Deaths) - National Diabetes Audit (NDA) - Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) - e-Referral Service (eRS) - Personal Demographics Service (PDS) - Summary Hospital-level Mortality Indicator (SHMI) The pseudonymised data is required to for the following purposes: • Population health management • Understanding the inter dependency of care services • Targeting care more effectively • Using value as the redesign principle • to analytically understand patient journeys for pathway and service re-design. • 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 • Understanding the whole system offer for the borough across health and social care to support and drive integration. • Understand and develop a borough wide asset based approach to prevention, early intervention and holistic • Long term support based on accurate demand/need modelling. 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 borough based on the full analysis of multiple pseudonymised datasets. Processing for commissioning will be conducted by NHS Bury CCG, Bury Metropolitan Borough Council and Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit.

Processing:

PROCESSING CONDITIONS: Data must only be used for the purposes stipulated within this Data Sharing Agreement. Any additional disclosure / publication will require further approval from NHS Digital. Data Processors must only act upon specific instructions from the Data Controller. Data can only be stored at the addresses listed under storage addresses. All access to data is managed under Role-Based Access Controls. Users can only access data authorised by their role and the tasks that they are required to undertake. Patient level data will not be linked other than as specifically detailed within this Data Sharing Agreement. Data released will only be shared with those parties listed and will only be used for the purposes laid out in the application/agreement. 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) ONWARD SHARING: Patient level data will not be shared outside of the Controllers / Processors 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. Aggregated reports only with small number suppression can be shared externally as set out within NHS Digital guidance applicable to each data set. 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. Where the Data Processor and/or the Data Controller hold identifiable data with opt outs applied and identifiable data with opt outs not applied, the data will be held separately so data cannot be linked. All access to data is auditable by NHS Digital. DATA MINIMISATION: Data Minimisation in relation to the data sets listed within the application are listed below. This also includes the purpose on which they would be applied - For the purpose of Commissioning: • Patients who are normally registered and/or resident within the NHS Bury CCG or Bury Metropolitan Borough Council region (including historical activity where the patient was previously registered or resident in another commissioner). and/or • Patients treated by a provider where NHS Bury CCG is the host/co-ordinating commissioner and/or has the primary responsibility for the provider services in the local health economy – this is only for commissioning and relates to both national and local flows. and/or • Activity identified by the provider and recorded as such within national systems (such as SUS+) as for the attention of NHS Bury CCG - this is only for commissioning and relates to both national and local flows. NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit and Greater Manchester Shared Services (hosted by Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust ) supply IT infrastructure for Arden and GEM Commissioning Support Unit and are therefore listed as data processors. They supply support to the system, but do not access data. Therefore, any access to the data held under this agreement would be considered a breach of the agreement. This includes granting of access to the database[s] containing the data. Ilkeston Community Hospital (Part of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust) and Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust do not access data held under this agreement as they only supply the building. Therefore, any access to the data held under this agreement would be considered a breach of the agreement. This includes granting of access to the database[s] containing the data. 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.

The CCG and Council may also share the data between themselves 5. Data quality management of Adult Social Care data is completed by Bury Metropolitan Borough Council 6. The Adult Social Care data is pseudonymised at source using a pseudonymisation key provided by the DSCRO (different from the pseudo key used by the DSCRO). 7. This consistently pseudonymised data is securely passed to the CCG using a secure local connection 8. The DSCRO sends a mapping table to the CCG to overwrite the pseudonym in the social care data so it is linkable to the data in point 1 9. The CCG then shares the adult social care data with the local authority. The CCG must not share the data with the local authority unless the pseudonym has been overwritten as per point 8 10. The data controllers are required to keep the pseudonymised data they receive separate from any identifiable data and the pseudonymised data the local authority submits to the CCG, and make no attempt to reidentify the data. Failure to meet these terms will result in a breach of this agreement. 11. Aggregation of required data for CCG management use will be completed by Arden and Gem CSU or the CCG as instructed by the CCG and the Council. 12. Patient level data will not be shared outside of the Data Controllers / Processors, other than with their member GP Practices for each Practices own patients only and will only be shared within the Data Controllers / Processors 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. The Encryption key will only be shared by the DSCRO with named individuals in Bury Metropolitan Borough Council (Adult Social Care). This is to enable Adult Social Care data to be pseudonymised at source. The key cannot be used to re-identify data as it only allows for one-way pseudonymisation. Access to the pseudonymised data is provided only to Bury Metropolitan Borough Council and NHS Bury CCG and will only be used for the purposes specified. Re-identification can only occur for GPs who have a legitimate relationship with the patient and only for the purpose of direct care.

  • Diagnostic Services-Local Provider Flows
  • Emergency Care-Local Provider Flows

Objectives:

Commissioning To use pseudonymised data which will be shared between multiple CCGs which will be listed within the Data Sharing Agreement, 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: - Local Provider Flows o Acute o Ambulance o Community o Diagnostic Service o Emergency Care 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 following CCGs are able to share record level data between the CCGs to enable collaborative reporting by their respective CCG analysts and Data Processor Analysts (Arden and GEM CSU): - NHS Bury CCG - NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale CCG - NHS Manchester CCG - NHS Oldham CCG The CCGs work together on a collaborative basis across to support each other in delivering their commissioning agendas. For example, they wish to carry out contract monitoring, e.g. SUS SLAM reconciliation, for all the four CCGs listed above where they are lead commissioner; or where a CCG provides a contract monitoring service for another CCG. The CCGs request approval (through this DARS amendment) to share the following datasets on a collaborative basis across the four CCGs , to be used for collaborative reporting in any combination of CCGs in the group, or at individual CCG level reporting as required; both by a CCG’s in house BI/Contract Analysts and by their Data Processor Analysts, Arden and GEM CSU: • Local Provider Flows (for commissioning) The CCGs may access the pseudonymised data of each CCG for the purpose of commissioning only. The data listed in Annex A of the DSA is the data that the CCGs will be allowed to access.

Expected Benefits:

Develop business models. c. Monitor In year projects. 2. Supporting Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) for specific disease types. 3. Health economic modelling using: a. Analysis on provider performance against 18 weeks wait targets. 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. CCG outcome indicators. b. Non-financial validation of activity. c. Successful delivery of integrated care within the CCG. d. Checking frequent or multiple attendances to improve early intervention and avoid admissions. e. Case management. f. Care service planning. g. Commissioning and performance management. h. List size verification by GP practices. i. Understanding the care of patients in nursing homes. 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.

Outputs:

Provider reporting. g. Statutory returns. h. Statutory returns - monthly activity return. i. Statutory returns - quarterly activity return. j. Delayed discharges. k. Quality & performance referral to treatment reporting. 2. Readmissions analysis. 3. Production of aggregate reports for CCG Business Intelligence. 4. Production of project / programme level dashboards. 5. Monitoring of acute / community / mental health quality matrix. 6. Clinical coding reviews / audits. 7. Budget reporting down to individual GP Practice level. 8. GP Practice level dashboard reports include high flyers.

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 otherwise stipulated within this agreement or 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 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 of interest of 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) 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 audited Commissioning The Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office (DSCRO) obtains the following data sets: 1. Local Provider Flows (received directly from providers) o Acute o Ambulance o Community o Diagnostic Service o Emergency Care Data quality management and pseudonymisation is completed within the DSCRO and is then disseminated as follows: Data Processor 1 – Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit 1) Pseudonymised Local Provider data only are securely transferred from the DSCRO to Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit. 2) Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit add derived fields, link data and provide analysis. 3) Allowed linkage is between the data sets contained within point 1. 4) Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit then pass the processed, pseudonymised and linked data to each CCG. The CCG analyse the data to see patient journeys for pathways or service design, re-design and de-commissioning. 5) Aggregation of required data for CCG management use will be completed by Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit 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.
