Spire Washington Hospital shortlisted for CHKS data quality award for independent providers

15 April 2015

Spire Washington Hospital has been shortlisted for the CHKS Top Hospitals programme data quality award for independent providers 2015. The CHKS Top Hospitals awards celebrate excellence throughout the UK and are given to acute sector organisations for their achievements in healthcare quality and improvement.

CHKS has used over 25 years of experience in the analysis of hospital data to decide the indicators on which each of the Top Hospitals programme awards are judged. Awards are made on the basis of an analysis of publicly available datasets and every NHS acute trust is included.

The data quality award recognises the importance of clinical coding and data quality, and the essential roles they play in ensuring appropriate patient care. It is based on a range of coding indicators, including coding related to primary diagnosis.

Jason Harries, managing director, CHKS said: “Every hospital is accountable to its patients, their families and carers as well as the local community to provide a safe environment. Our data quality award highlights those trusts that clearly share a commitment to driving improvement and engendering a culture of excellence throughout their organisations and it is a credit to the staff at Spire Washington Hospital that it has been shortlisted for this award.”

The CHKS Top Hospitals programme awards will be held in London on 19th May and is set to be attended by over 200 guests including leaders from across the healthcare sector, from the Department of Health, Royal Colleges, and acute trusts.
