Data Quality HRG4 & Payment by Results Roadshow 2009
Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 Outline Introductions and welcome Data Quality – What is it and why is it important? Impact of Data Quality –Impact on HRG4 and grouping process (NHS IC) –Lessons to be learnt from audits to drive improvement (AC) –Key Coding/Classification issues – preventing poor coding and ensuring data is of good quality. (CFH) Summary & Key messages Issues to consider Q&A
Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 The dimensions of data quality Data Quality AccuracyValidityReliabilityTimelinessRelevanceCompleteness
Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 The importance of data quality to the NHS Next Stage Review (Darzi) –Quality measurement and indicators –Enabling and empowering choice –Greater accountability – Quality Accounts –Payment for Quality – CQUIN, Advancing Quality Programme (NHS NW) Hospital funding under PbR World Class Commissioning PBC Regulation Can contribute to poor quality of care (which may have tragic consequences)
Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 DQ Quotes: NHS IC DQ Programme Somebody, somewhere has already solved this problem – if only we knew where to look We don’t actually turn up every morning planning to create bad data Telling people off doesn’t improve data quality It’s no good just telling us we have 5% errors – we need to know what the errors are so we can fix them People don’t realise that bad data is bad for patient care, bad for income, and bad for reputation Most of the problems occur in gaps – between systems, organisations, programmes, standards, responsibility…
Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 Impact of Data Quality HRG4 & grouping Issues identified from PbR data assurance audits and impact on payment Coding accuracy
You and Your U HRG Identifying and resolving U HRGs
What are the error types and why are they generated? Error Types UZ01 - Invalid Diagnosis UZ02 - Poorly Coded Primary Diagnosis UZ03 - Age Conflicting with Diagnosis UZ04 - Diagnosis conflicting with anatomical sites UZ05 - Invalid Procedures UZ06 - Poorly Coded Procedures UZ01Z – Data invalid for grouping
How to identify the U HRGs The FCE HRGThe Spell HRG Local Payment HRG Output File
How to identify the Error Types Local Payment HRG Data Quality Report
Steps for resolving U HRGs Ensure the episode contains a valid primary (ICD-10) diagnosis and/or procedure (OPCS-4) codes. If the ICD-10/OPCS-4 codes are valid codes then examine whether the U HRG being generated is due to the lack of information available to the clinical coding teams.
Need for completeness of data Non trauma primary diagnosis CASE A W58.1Primary resurfacing arthroplasty of joint HRG: HB99Z Other procedure for non Trauma *Tariff: £493 CASE B W58.1Primary resurfacing arthroplasty of joint Z84.6Knee joint HRG: HB23C Intermediate Knee Procedures for non Trauma without CC *Tariff: £3077 (*Department of Health, 2009-10 national mandatory tariffs, Elective spell tariff)
Summary Correct assignment of HRGs is dependent on the accuracy and completeness of the coded clinical data. If the grouper encounters an invalid or poorly coded primary diagnoses or an invalid or poorly coded procedure, the grouper will report a U HRG for both the Consultant Episode and the Spell. Details of which error(s) have been generated can be found in the quality report.

Data Quality Workshop HRG4 Roadshow 2009 Supporting Improvement: benchmarking case studies Produced an overall assessment of our coding accuracy to provide assurance to the board Director of Finance & Performance (trust) Identified high level of activity in one HRG – trust had started recording outpatient test as day case Information Development Manager (PCT) Used regularly to investigate outlying specialties – identified area where EPR did not provide enough information for coding Service Line Reporting Accountant (trust) Identified sudden increase in activity in outpatients as trust changed their way of counting Deputy Director of Commissioning (PCT)
