Children's Health Digital Strategy 2016 - An introduction

3,908 views

Published on

NHS England is leading in the development of a new digital strategy which will transform the way children's health information is gathered and used over the next five years.

The current information landscape is fragmented with partial records spread across different clinical systems. One child will have separate profiles across maternity, general practice, child health information and acute systems. This complex picture is difficult to access by professionals outside of the health system, such as education or social care.

There's also still a high volume of paper records going back and forth between different settings, which, aside from being bad for the environment, is error prone and time-consuming. When you consider the commitment made that health and care services will be paper-free at the point of care by 2020, it is crucial that we address child health with a new digital strategy if we are to meet that commitment and improve the care that children receive by providing an information service which knows where every child is and how healthy they are as well as appropriate access to child health information for all involved in the care of children.

Children's Health Digital Strategy 2016 - An introduction

  1. 1. www.england.nhs.uk Children’s Health Digital Strategy 2016 An Introduction November 2015
  2. 2. www.england.nhs.uk What is the Digital Strategy? • A roadmap which explores the options for transforming the way children’s health information is gathered and used over the next 5 years. • Currently child health information services (CHIS) comprise:  Child Health Record Departments (CHRDs)  Child Health Information Service Systems (CHISS)  Personal Child Health Records (PCHR or ‘red book’) • Child health information services liaise across care settings and agencies and regions to ensure that children and young people in their local population are offered the universal services available – the ‘Healthy Child Programme’ – and that key information on children’s health is available to parents and professionals and for public health purposes.
  3. 3. www.england.nhs.uk Children and Young People Parents, Families, Carers Health Professionals in all care settings . . . Primary, Urgent, Acute, Mental Health, Community, Voluntary Social Care Professionals Public Health Professionals Education Professionals Strategy aim: Appropriate access to child health information for all involved in the care of children
  4. 4. www.england.nhs.uk Why a new digital strategy now? • In recent years there has been a new emphasis on ways of improving children’s health:  Focusing on the importance of early interventions and preventive measures in improving health  The idea of proportionate universalism – improving the lives of all, with proportionately greater resources targeted at the more disadvantaged groups  The need for more coordinated approaches to child health and wellbeing if outcomes are to be improved  Thinking of investing in the current and future health of children and young people rather than focusing purely on spend  Needing to listen to children and young people and families if we are to develop effective strategies • But the way we manage and inform parents and professionals about the health of children has not changed in over 20 years and cannot support the new vision.
  5. 5. www.england.nhs.uk • Changing perceptions about organisational boundaries to provide joined-up care • Overcoming technical constraints to provide information when it is needed, in easily understandable formats • More information sharing across care settings within health • More information sharing with partners outside of the NHS who are also responsible for the health and wellbeing of children • Online access for children, parents and families to their own health records • Using the potential of new technologies to enhance health and wellbeing Significant change is needed:
  6. 6. www.england.nhs.uk The existing model of CHIS will not scale to meet current and future challenges NHS and Public Health Communities Non-NHS Communities Children, Young People & Families ?CHRDS CH Info Systems PCHR (Red book)
  7. 7. www.england.nhs.uk • Is fragmented – partial records in several different systems – Maternity, GP, Child Health Information Systems, Acute • No single picture of a child’s health interventions • Is complex - disparate systems with very little interoperability • Very limited access to information for our partners outside the NHS, for example, Social Services or Education • Information still largely recorded on paper and sent from care-setting to care-setting • Information re-keyed from systems to system creating large administrative burden • Possible for children’s information to be mislaid/delayed when they move to a new area • Impossible to easily view a child’s history and determine how healthy they are Current Information Landscape

  10. 10. www.england.nhs.uk The challenge is to simplify and standardise Population Management & Population Definitions Access & Information Governance Interoperability & Centralised vs Distributed systems Lack of National Data Standards Variability of local practice & procedures Accountability & Responsibility Inclusivity & Working Without Boundaries
  11. 11. www.england.nhs.uk • Imagination and intelligence need to be applied to use information in ways that enhance professional practice and personal/parental responsibility for the health of children and young people • We need to inquire into why we do things in certain ways and ask whether there are better ideas and models available. • We need to change our perspective to truly see and deliver integrated care, no more working and thinking in silos. • We need to do things differently We need to think differently
  12. 12. www.england.nhs.uk • We had a simple, almost real time, single view of whether the healthy child programme had been delivered to a child? • It acted as failsafe for the population and the child and the parents? • It could be used easily by parents and children – what interventions should my child be having, at what age, have they had them? • It could be used by professionals managing a population cohort (or caseload)  Health Visitors  School Nurses  GPs  Practice Nurses  Commissioners What if. . .
