Data Analysis

Since Interface Clinical Services Interface first began partnering with the NHS in 2004, a lot has changed. One of the most notable changes has been how primary care data has been revolutionised with real world data, which is collected and interpreted to deliver insight into patient pathways and develop frameworks to further both patient experience and care.

Data Analysis

Data Analysis

Interface provide intelligent data to all levels of the NHS, from detailed reporting on clinical review services, to highlighting where efficiencies can be made and prevalence and adherence improved.

Why is data so important? The data Interface provides to the NHS empowers and better informs clinicians and commissioners to deliver best practice and improve patient outcomes. Whilst the data can be used to improve efficiencies within practices, often with cost-saving benefits, it primarily allows clinicians to track patients’ journeys and compare reported outcome data with real word data.

The data provided can also be used to benchmark against local or national guidelines, allow prescribing patterns to be analysed, enable forecasting and highlight where clinicians should be looking to make interventions.  

Nice Shared Learning

Interface is continually working with the NHS to deliver effective results and implement best practice. Using our project design and outcome data allows clinical programmes to be replicated across the UK, maximising the use of Interface’s national capacity to support the NHS deliver improved patient care.

This has been acknowledged by NICE which has recognised Interface Clinical Services’ ability to implemented guidelines and quality standards across three key therapy areas, bone health, atrial fibrillation and diabetes on their shared learning platform.

NICE use this platform to share innovation and best practice across the NHS, showcasing examples of those using NICE guidance and standards to improve local health and social care services.  The clinical programmes delivered by Interface and shared by NICE can be viewed below:

Bone Health Programme: A Proactive Population Approach to Bone Health in partnership with Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria (AHSN NENC).

Safe and effective management of stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation in partnership with Sentinel Healthcare GP Federation. 

Supporting the management of type 2 diabetes with pharmacist-led reviews and implementing NICE recommended nine key care processes in partnership with Slough CCG.

Another example of a collaborative project between Interface and the NHS can be seen below.

Data was analysed across 10 GP practices within the Cheshire Merseyside STP to establish baseline level data on lipid management in the context of key indications for treatment with statin therapy.

The dashboard was created by interface as part of the Cheshire & Merseyside lipid commissioning for value programme. The programme stakeholders were health & care partnership for Cheshire & Merseyside, North West Coast Strategic Clinical Network, North West Coast Academic Health Care Network Innovation Agency, and Salvera Services with Interface Clinical Services helping to facilitate the programme.

Case Study

Improving Outcomes in Asthma

Interface was commissioned to deliver an innovative Asthma Review Programme designed to improve the quality of asthma treatment across the local health economy and reduce hospital admissions for respiratory problems.

Patients were reviewed in line with British Thoracic Society (BTS) guidelines and prioritised according to their current level of risk. Interface delivered GP approved interventions and implemented a mentoring programme to positively impact future asthma management.

Service Outcomes

  • 31% reduction in patients receiving high dose inhaled corticosteroids.
  • 42% reduction in short acting beta agonist usage beyond recommended limits of BTS guidelines.
  • Projected annual reduction in respiratory medicines spend of £239,000.

The programme has left a legacy across the local health economy, empowering commissioners, practices and patients to effectively manage the treatment of asthma going forward.
