PATIENT CARE DATA VALIDATION – SHORT-TERM ACCURACY AND LONG-TERM CONSISTENCY 16.06.21

Our long-established resourcing division, Himatix Health, is now called Insource Teams Ltd in line with the Insource plan for brand consolidation and solutions expansion across UK healthcare.

At Insource Teams we are passionate about improving patient outcomes. We recognise hospitals may need our temporary resourcing teams to urgently address data quality backlog issues. But we also want to ensure those issues don’t return after project completion.

Insource Teams, the resourcing division of Insource Ltd, has invested significantly to secure additional resources to meet the current high demand for validation services. We offer a secure, remote validation service delivered through our highly skilled teams, to efficiently deliver projects critical to NHS Recovery plans. Our proven track record of providing extremely accurate data quality audits and validation services lies in our embedded Insource technology. It is with this we can offer a technology-based, managed service solution for long-term data confidence and sustainability.

Patient Pathway Plus (PP+) – embedded technology

PP+ replaces ALL spreadsheets and dramatically reduces the huge amount of man hours taken up in producing manual PTL Reports. By replacing manual data checking with automated, evidenced-based, validation of data between specialty source systems and the PAS/EPR – wrong pathways or clock stops are easily spotted, errors in coding highlighted and bottlenecks are quickly spotted.

With PP+ you can have daily or near real-time automated reporting that can be used for statutory national reporting or for Board level dashboards – with the confidence that the data is fully accurate. It presents a single source of the truth for all waiting lists across all specialties, highlights clinical priorities and breaches and enables the Trust to plan their way out of the Recovery and maximise resources.
