Reconciling the information needs of clinicians, managers and commissioners – a pilot project

  • Matthew Broadbent (a1)
Abstract
Aims and Method

Clinicians are often required, by managers, to provide information that does not appear relevant to clinical practice. Rooted in compromise, an outcome-based information model that supports practice and also provides information for managers was developed. A 9–month pilot project at three sites in South-East London took place to test the feasibility of this model in real clinical settings.

Results

Accurate data were reliably collected. Clinicians at participating sites agreed the model produced potentially useful information and, on condition that support is provided, continue to collect data voluntarily.

Clinical Implications

This is not an exclusively clinical model. However, because it also fulfils management needs there is a better chance that clinicians will get the support they need.
