Case Studies

Leeds North CCG

Leeds North CCG is made up of 26 NHS GP practices within the North Leeds region. The NHS provides an Urgent Care System to cater for all patients within the UK who require immediate action/attention. The Urgent Care System requires some improvements and adjustments to meet the requirements to provide all patients with care that is both safe and effective. As part of the NHS Five Year Forward View, Leeds North CCG are currently looking at how the Urgent Care System across Leeds could be improved.

In collaboration with X-Lab, Leeds North CCG completed this as an undergraduate project, with the University of Leeds, to explore various changes in the pathway using NETIMIS.

We are grateful to the Yorkshire Connected Health Cities (CHC) programme for support in the development of this case study.

Connected Yorkshire

Connected Yorkshire is one of the Connected Health Cities that aims to deliver service improvements to the population across the Yorkshire region using anonymised electronically recorded routine data available in health and social care organisations. The data will be linked anonymously and will be hosted on a digital platform at the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics. The de-identified linked data aims to support redesign of pathways of care, develop and evaluate new interventions, support learning health systems and test innovative research approaches to improve health and wellbeing across the population.

By working in collaboration with X-Lab, as part of a Leeds University undergraduate project, NETIMIS has provided pathway visualisation of replacing the Children’s Assessment Unit (CAU) with a Children’s Clinical Decision Area (CCDA) to explore whether there is a reduction in hospital admission rates.

Diagnostics Evidence
Co-operative — Leeds

DEC Leeds facilitates the required research to enable the evaluation of diagnostic tests to provide benefits to the NHS in fields including urological, oncology, liver, musculoskeletal and colorectal diseases. Working in partnership with DEC Leeds, is Chapel Allerton Hospital, who are a leading source in the investigation of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal diseases. The Rheumatology department acts as a regional hub for the Yorkshire and Humber region. The department’s main aim is to provide service for patients who have been diagnosed, or undergoing the diagnosis of Scleroderma. Scleroderma is an autoimmune and rheumatic disease that affects the body by hardening the skin and connective tissues.

In collaboration with X-Lab, Leeds DEC have had the opportunity to explore how a Point of Care Testing Device will impact their current state pathway within Chapel Allerton Hospital. This case study was completed as part of a University of Leeds undergraduate final year project.
