  5. Amend Staffing Compartment Calculation

    ESR data has been used to reflect the staffing by specialty however the way specialties have been defined is by "Area of Work". This is not a mandatory ESR field and often staff in a specialty come under differing areas of work eg administration.

    Internally we use cost centers. When we compare our departmental staff to your breakdown of our staff they are significantly different - eg T&O in the model hospital reports 70.8 FTE, we actually have just over 123 FTE. Therefore an inaccurate view of a specialty which we therefore cannot benchmark against other trusts.

  7. To share best practices for geriatric medicine as this is a major area in any trust

    This is an area with highest potential productivity opportunities and clinical staff need to look at best practices in other trusts to improve pathways and productivity. Sharing this as soon as possible would be helpful to engage doctors and staff in the current Model Hospital analysis we are doing.

  8. Include agency spend when calcualting staff type ost per WAU

    Currently the data on staff cost per WAU only includes employed staff this does not reflect the true cost which can include large amounts of agency spend. This means that areas that are fully established and use little agency look less efficient than under established areas with a large agency bill. This is perverse and is driving some very odd/dangerous ideas in our trust as to where savings can be made.

  11. Please define WTE consultant

    Does WTE pertain to 1 person that could be doing 10PAs or 14 or does it pertain to 10 PAs total work. To see if a service is efficient we need to compare output per PA not output per person listed on ESR

  12. User selection of sub-specialties underneath each specialty

    Allow users to select which sub-specialties should fall under over-arching specialty i.e. in paediatrics often different sub-specialties are managed by different Divisions and it is not clear how much of the opportunity lies in each sub-specialty

  14. Enable bespoke reports to be downloaded

    As a Model Hospital user I would like to be able to download data for a single metric across all clinical service lines, for example to be able to view Cost per WAU for all specialties at once rather than extracting from each specialty individually.

  15. Separate obstetrics and gynaecology and clinical lines

    Would it be possible to split obstetrics and gynaecology into separate lines as these are different services and it would be helpful to see data differentiated

    Thanks very much for your suggestion.

    Where possible, for example, for inpatient length of stay metrics powered by HES data, we have begun to do this. We are exploring ways of splitting out Obstetrics and Gynaecology more generally, but limitations with some of our data sources may prevent this from happening quickly.

    Best wishes,
    Model Hospital team

  16. Remove duplication of costs and opportunities across service lines

    For our data there are a number of overlaps in the cost and opportunities shown for each service line.

    As an example with Gen Surg there is the national specialty of General Surgery but also F/G HRG's. These F/G HRG's also then also reported in the lines for other services where this activity is reported in refernce costs (in our case gastro, gen med, elderly etc..)

    We also see the costs and opportunity for 503 (Gynaecological Oncology) in both the Obs and Gynae service line and the Cancer Services data.

  17. Update clinical metrics from HES sources more regularly

    Length of stay and other data for elective hip/knee, A&E waiting times and other metrics are still only available for 15/16 data in several cases. Several of these could be updated monthly.

  18. Include data on litigation rates

    It would be helpful to be able to see information on litigation costs and claims under each clinical specialty

  19. Show specialty cost per WAU on a single chart

  20. Consider ways to display workforce data for general surgery and general medicine

    As a Carter Lead I am interested in how ESR data can be better utilised to add value in clinical specialties. Often staff are assigned under general surgery and general medicine rather than their specific specialty, this can make it difficult to get an accurate picture of productivity at a specialty level.
