To support the capture and flow of information about diagnoses, long term conditions and childhood disabilities, the BACD encourages all paediatricians to:
Make the managers, IT and data teams in their organisations aware that the CYPHS is live and that reporting the data is now mandated
Encourage their NHS provider organisations to register with the HSCIC to set up the processes to allow data submission
Develop together with their IT and data teams an appropriate interface for data capture at the point of clinical care
Become familiar with the Paediatric neurodisability outpatient diagnosis description subset (Please note the Description ID is not the SNOMED CT code. Please click on each term to see the SNOMED CT code). This is also presented in spreadsheet format: Data Capture List (+snowmed CT codes)
Check out the updated Explanatory Glossary of Terms to support data capture, that now includes suggestions for outcomes and actions for Education, Health and Care planning as well as links to relevant national guidance where this is available. This has been developed in partnership with parent carers and allied health professionals.
