Use of primary care data to support system planning
During these unprecedented times we’ve seen the importance data can play; from informing patients’ care based on their clinical risk to a system oversight of the demand and capacity.
However, in the initial phase of COVID-19 for the Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership the lack of central access to primary care data has meant a big part of the jigsaw has been missing from our central planning approach.
During the second phase of our COVID-19 response, the Mid and South Essex CCGs intend to work with Primary Care Providers to make better use of Primary Care data to make the operational reality and contribution of Primary Care within our System more visible. This will support Primary Care Providers, Commissioners and the wider system to manage future challenges arising from Covid-19.
