The Acute Data Alignment Programme (ADAPt) is a joint programme between NHS Digital and the Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) which is looking to adopt common standards for data collections and performance measures across both the NHS and private healthcare. This will ensure that relevant information is consistently recorded and available so it can be more easily analysed and compared.
The aims of ADAPt:
- To make it easier to monitor the quality and safety of services by including private healthcare data within healthcare reporting systems.
- To help staff keep accurate and complete records when a patient journey spans both private and public providers.
- To ensure transparency for patients by publishing comparable performance measures relating to quality of care and patient safety for both privately funded and NHS funded healthcare.
- To identify where the burden of data collection and reporting by NHS and private care providers can be reduced.
