  1. SUS for Commissioners

Objectives:

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.

Risk Stratification will be conducted by Prescribing Services Limited

Expected Benefits:

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.

Outputs:

1. As part of the risk stratification processing activity detailed above, GPs have access to the risk stratification tool which highlights patients for whom the GP is responsible 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.
2. Output from the risk stratification tool will provide aggregate reporting of number and percentage of population found to be at risk.
3. Record level output will be available for commissioners (of the CCG), pseudonymised at patient level.
4. GP Practices will be able to view the risk scores for individual patients with the ability to display the underlying SUS+ data for the individual patients when it is required for direct care purposes by someone who has a legitimate relationship with the patient.
5. The CCG will be able to target specific patient groups and enable clinicians with the duty of care for the patient to offer appropriate interventions. The CCG will also be able to:

o Stratify populations based on: disease profiles; conditions currently being treated; current service use; pharmacy use and risk of future overall cost
o Plan work for commissioning services and contracts
o Set up capitated budgets
o Identify health determinants of risk of admission to hospital, or other adverse care outcomes.

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.

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 only for the purpose of Risk Stratification.

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 Minimisation
Data Minimisation in relation to the data sets listed within section 3 are listed below. This also includes the purpose on which they would be applied -

• Patients who are normally registered and/or resident within the commissioner (including historical activity where the patient was previously registered or resident in another commissioner


For clarity, any access by The Bunker Secure Hosting Ltd to 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.


The Data Controller should ensure appropriate data processing agreements with all data processors contracted to undertaking work referenced within this agreement.

Identifiable data will only be disclosed:
1) where the requesting Data Controller’s Caldicott Guardian/Senior Approving Officer has approved the disclosure
2) where the DSCRO Information Risk Owner has approved the disclosure
3) to requestor/recipients specified by the Data Controller
4) to recipients that have a legitimate relationship with the individuals identified by the data, e.g. clinician
5) using mechanisms and routes that are secure and have an appropriate legal basis for holding identifiable data
6) where there is a legal basis and it is covered by a Data Sharing Agreement that justifies its use or the data subject has consented or where there is a separate legal basis for making the dataset identifiable enabling the re-identification to take place
7) whilst continuing to respect the data subject’s preferences for data sharing

In order for identifiable data to be disclosed, all seven requirements must be met.

Where identifiable data for the same dataset to the same organisation is released by NHS Digital (via a DSCRO), relevant controls must be in place locally by the recipient organisation to ensure that identifiable data is stored separately, under strict access control provisions, from its original anonymised in accordance with the ICOACoP form and used only for the specific purpose stipulated in this agreement. There must be no efforts made by the recipient organisation to link these datasets .


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 Prescribing Services Ltd, who hold the SUS+ data within the secure Data Centre on N3.
3. Identifiable GP Data is securely sent from the GP system to Prescribing Services Ltd.
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 Prescribing Services Ltd has completed the processing, the CCG can access the online system via a secure connection to access the data pseudonymised at patient level.
