BSG May 2017 Update

NEW DATA VISUALISATION TOOLS FOR QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

A data visualisation tool has been developed to help IBD teams track performance against key performance indicators for biologics. The tool has been developed for the Registry by CIMS as an add-on to their InfoFlex IBD software and will be available initially for users of the IBD Registry Web Tool. (This development was funded by the final stage of the 2016/17 HQIP grant to the RCP for the IBD Audit.) The charts show local data compared with the national standard and the average performance of all hospitals using the web tool. We hope the data visualisation tools will help teams identify how well they provide care against the key performance indicators and prompt them to make changes where necessary to improve the quality of patient care. The data visualisation tool will be launched in May and you can find out more at the IBD Registry Roadshow meetings and at the IBD Registry symposium at the BSG on 21st June.

The charts below are samples showing number of patients receiving biological therapies and incidence of post-induction reviews (all data is fictional).

REGISTRY PARTICIPATION

Participation continues to grow, with 91 sites now set up to enter data into the IBD Registry.

CONVERTING YOUR EXPORTED RCP BIOLOGICS AUDIT DATA INTO USABLE RECORDS

We have developed a data conversion tool that makes it easy to read data exported from the RCP Biological Therapies Audit. The tool converts the Excel files into a user-friendly, easy to read document for each patient record. These can be used to make manual data entry easier or can be filed in the patient’s clinical record. Sites will need to have exported the Registry-compliant export files from the IBD Audit tool in order to use this system. If you’d like to see an example of what the tool can produce, please email Mark at support@ibdregistry.org.uk
