HEE/NHS had an inefficient interface for Junior Doctor information through TIS/ESR.
Our team designed/developed an Information Governance process to improve data quality:
-Produced first schema used in the system and showed data quality issues through validation.
-Standardised values and data quality through conditionality and enumeration.
-Mapped differences in coded/standardised values and encouraged standardisation and adherence to NHS digital standards.
This resulted in:
-The systems moved to standardised coding systems as defined by the open NHS data standards.
-All data had a robust schema, data quality was measurable and improved (1000+ data records fixed), and poorly formed data was handled properly.
