Improvement Academy Observatory

At the Improvement Academy we are developing our offering to our organisations by providing a place where regionwide analysis can be developed and presented. This is our Observatory.

This section of the website will contain work, in accordance with feedback from our organisations, which will pull together datasets from a variety of sources to help understand how we are doing.

Patient Safety Dashboard

When we consulted AHSN member organisations about what they wanted from our Patient Safety Collaborative, one common request has been for better data and information about safety. As part of responding to that need, we are trying out ways of collating and presenting safety data.

We have now developed the first phase of our Patient Safety Dashboard, which will be taken from publically available data sets, in this case the NHS Safety Thermometer (more datasets will be added in time, and you will have the opportunity to help determine what we incorporate next). It presents the information from a Yorkshire and Humber perspective, allowing you to see how your organisation changes over time compared to our region and England.

Delayed Transfers of Care

As part of our work supporting Patient Flow in the region, we have analysed Delayed Transfers of Care information for Yorkshire and Humber. This allows Trusts to see how many bed days are lost due to Delayed Transfers of Care (DTOCs), what are the reasons for this, and what type of organisation is responsible. This dashboard will be updated monthly.

Patient Safety Collaborative

The Patient Safety Dashboard is being developed to help support organisations in the Yorkshire & Humber Patient Safety Collaborative.
