Is the knowledge base essentially a help function?
Yes, the knowledge base is a platform sitting alongside the Model Health System which contains more in depth help and guidance articles.

Who inputs the data onto the Model Health System?
Data comes from a number of sources and is updated at different times. We rely on trusts submitting accurate data. At the bottom of every metric page there’s a box that tells you where the data has come from, how the metric has been calculated and more information around when it will be updated.

When will the Frailty compartment be live?

Are the data points predetermined through specific proformas? Or do they depend on what the trusts want to submit?
We use data from national collections, such as HES and SUS, but also our own data collections, such as theatres, which are collected via our own Data Collection Framework.
