Speed DATAing needs your feedback!

Q members - the Q Exchange Speed DATAing project needs your feedback to improve the data platform, which we hope will benefit clinical/executive leaders and improvement (QI, audit, clinical) leads at Acute Trusts. We welcome wider feedback from patients and commissioners too!

We are looking for feedback from Q members on our Q Exchange project, which seeks to use the awarded funding to make changes to the platform as a result of your feedback.

Why do we need member feedback?

We are really excited to launch our survey to find out how we can improve our National Clinical Audit Benchmarking (NCAB) platform for users. Every month hundreds of users are using NCAB to access national clinical audit (NCA) data. Primarily these users are based at Acute Trusts working in the relevant specialties or in clinical and executive leadership positions or quality improvement leads and respective QI team members. These users are the focus of our attempts to seek feedback as an opportunity for improving the platform and site. We also welcome wider feedback from all Q community members interested in helping us shape this.

As such, we would welcome those with an interest in using data for improvement – if this is you, please complete the survey.

What is NCAB?

NCAB is an online portal providing access to national audit performance data. Its unique feature is that it brings together results from national audits in one platform so that the most recent results across the portfolio can be easily accessed and viewed by each healthcare provider. NCAB distils what can be necessarily extensive reporting into a concise set of key metrics for each audit topic. Results are presented in an easy to understand visual form, specific for each Trust, hospital and in some cases ward and where available against national benchmarks.

What if you have never used NCAB?

That’s ok! The survey enables you to take a look at the website first via a link to enable you to see what it is like before you give your feedback. We think NCAB is most useful for clinical and executive leaders and improvement (QI, audit, clinical) leads at Acute Trusts. We also welcome wider feedback including feedback from patients and commissioners too!

When do I need to do it by?

It takes about 10 minutes to complete the survey. So why not do it now! But if you don’t have the chance right this minute, then you can still do it later and by 14 December if at all possible. We will send out a reminder that week.
We will publish anonymous results unless you leave your email and we contact you in relation to sharing your personal feedback.

Thanks in advance for your time!
