Track your Trust Performance: Model Hospital now reflects BADS Directory 6th Edition

Day case compartment update
A major update has been published in the Day Case compartment to bring the Model Hospital in line with version 6 of the BADS Directory of procedures. Data is now available for Q4 2019/20 for all Trusts and allows users to explore their day case rates against the new recommended rates, including a number of new procedures in the handbook. We would like to thank BADS for all of their assistance in helping us to get the methodology and data live over the last few months. We are continuing to work on the emergency procedure section and will be releasing data during our next quarterly update in November 2019 when the next quarter of stable HES data is available. General release notes are below:
  • All  elective procedures  from the BADS directory of procedures are now available to explore for day case rates, conversion rates and bed saving opportunities to Q4 2019/20. The handbook can be purchased from BADS here:  /en/shop/directory/
  • Meta data has been updated to include updated methodology including OPCS codes for each procedure and some minor improvements to explain the specialty and trust level metrics
  • Internal processes to produce data have been optimised in order to provide more timely updates in future. New quarterly data will be available within a few days of NHS Digital releasing HES data (waiting for third publication of the period to capture changes due to SUS+ freeze dates).
  • Emergency procedures will be released with the Q1 2019/20 data
  • Future developments include developing a new metric to look at missed opportunities where a patient was planned as an IP overnight stay but was treated and discharged with a zero-day LoS.
