Focused investigation (deep dives) into areas where data is highlighting alerts/anomalies to fully understand the issue/reason for the alert and therefore provide recommendations for action.
The quarterly NEQOS Hospital Mortality Monitoring reports give providers and commissioners regular hospital mortality and benchmarking information to assist with assurance across the region. This report provides a focus on a single North-East Foundation Trust as a result of the information available within the twenty second report.
NEQOS can support specific, independent investigations required as a result of an alert highlighted by NEQOS reports, by an external organisation (such as Dr. Foster), or by a commissioning or regulatory organization (CQC or Monitor).
All subscribers to NEQOS have the advantage of access to our team of expert analysts and clinical epidemiologists for advice on quality measurement queries.
