The Summary Hospital Mortality Indicator (SHMI) - has increased steadily over the last three years and the Trust is currently undertaking a review looking at ways of improving this and fully understands the reasons behind this increase. This includes looking at both clinical care and the data.
As a part of this work, the Trust has engaged with an external expert, Price WaterHouse Cooper LLP (PWC), to undertake some work on our behalf relating to the Trusts hospital mortality statistics.
In order to support this work, the Trust will be sharing data in a pseudonymised form (removing any identifiable elements), comprising of all inpatient episodes and discharge data, with PWC, who will then use analytics to analyse data and return outcomes to help the Trust to improve.
This work will start from November 2018 and will be provided on a monthly basis for the next three years.
