Digital, Data and Information
The Digital, Data and Information Workstream is responsible for working with the other workstreams to identify and develop appropriate metrics for measuring achievement against outcomes.
We are developing recommendations to improve wound care data and information. Our aim is to identify the existing national data sets, coding systems and IT systems in use to establish what is already measured and what needs to be measured across all healthcare sectors.

The Digital Technology Assessment Criteria for health and social care (DTAC) gives staff, patients and citizens confidence that the digital health tools they use meet our clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability and usability standards.
On Friday 26th of March 2021, the AHSN & NHSX held DTAC Deep Dive online learning session and the recording can be found here.

The National Wound Care Strategy Programme is addressing the unwarranted variation in UK wound care services, underuse of evidence-based practices and overuse of ineffective practices, to improve wound care healing and prevention for people and use NHS resources more efficiently.
There is currently no recognised standard for a generic information record that can support the delivery of wound care (including assessment, management, maintenance and prevention), so the Professional Record Standards Body (PRSB) has been commissioned to produce a wound care information standard to support the adoption of best practices in wound care and increase the quantity, quality and impact of these approaches.
