Acumentice is pleased to announce that it is one of seven providers that has been awarded a national framework for the provision of Data Validation Services by The Countess of Chester Hospital Commercial Procurement Services (COCH-CPS).

With the framework in place, NHS organisations can access highly specialised support enabling the testing and validation of patient data during the process of migrating from a legacy patient administration system (PAS) to a modern electronic patient record (EPR) system.

Benefits of the national framework

Having been awarded a place on this national framework, this should provide added reassurance to NHS organisations looking for Data Validation Services knowing that in becoming an approved supplier, Acumentice have met high quality standards including Cyber Essentials Plus.

Further benefits of the framework for NHS organisations include:

  • Providing assurance to the Board, CCGs and patients of the accuracy of patient data
  • Supporting RTT and other patient access standards
  • Improving patient data quality held in the EPR
  • Supporting the optimal use of a new EPR from implementation
  • Ensuring effective transfer of knowledge helping to develop in-house central validation and booking teams expertise

Karina Malhotra, Managing Director at Acumentice said: “We’re really proud to have become an approved supplier on this framework scoring the maximum mark for our technical abilities. Data validation services are an extremely important enabler of elective care recovery, and I’m very much looking forward to contributing to the success of the framework, now our third, and ultimately working with new NHS partners to bring sustainable improvements through a value for money and technically expert service.”

Andy O’Connor, Director of Commercial Procurement Services at COCH-CPS said, “We put this framework in place to help the NHS improve the quality of patient data held, and how this is managed. We’ve selected the leading specialists to help NHS organisation provide assurance to their Boards, their commissioners and most importantly their patients that data is working to deliver better outcomes.”

Data validation services from Acumentice

Data validation services from Acumentice have supported multiple trusts with improving their data quality through carefully considered operational changes coupled with ‘smart’ data validation and correcting hundreds of thousands of records across various patient administration systems.

By working in partnership with hospital trusts and organisations, they can find out the specific operational and data issues impacting their performance metrics to ensure the right changes are made.

Each service is bespoke to the organisation’s needs, following an initial assessment to identify specific issues. These can be targeted to specific cohorts of high-risk patients, or they can be more generalised to the Trust’s needs with recommended improvements that provide sustainable solutions.

The team also understands how complex it can be moving patient data from a legacy PAS system to a modern EPR system and organisations don’t always have the skills internally to complete a smooth digital transformation. Acumentice can deliver an efficient reconfiguration to support all operational and clinical needs.

Our team is looking forward to forging new partnerships within the NHS, supporting their transition to modern EPR systems and providing expert advice on data quality and validation.

If you’re an NHS Trust looking to migrate from a legacy PAS to a modern EPR system or require more information, get in touch with Acumentice at info@acumentice.com or contact The Countess of Chester Hospital Commercial Procurement Services at info@coch-cps.co.uk.
