Moorfields and UCLH collaboration win data quality award for second year running

Moorfields Eye Hospital in collaboration with University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) has won the award for data quality in clinical coding (specialist trust) at the CHKS Top Hospitals Awards for the second consecutive year.

The CHKS Top Hospitals Awards celebrate healthcare organisations across the UK and internationally that have excelled in the areas of patient safety, data quality, patient experience, quality of care and healthcare efficiency, as well as recognise the top performing acute trusts.

The data quality award for specialist trusts is a national award given in recognition of the importance of clinical coding and data quality, and the essential role they play in ensuring appropriate patient care and financial reimbursement from commissioners.

The trust was shortlisted based on the data it regularly submits to NHS Digital and a range of data quality indicators. The data is supported by the clinical coding team at UCLH.

The awards ceremony was held at the Royal College of Physicians and was hosted by Sue Saville, former ITV News Medical Correspondent.

Ranjita Sen, head of performance and information at Moorfields Eye Hospital, said:

"I'm delighted that the team's work alongside UCLH has been recognised. We were competing with some fantastic, high profile organisations so to be acknowledged as leaders in the field of clinical coding is a really proud moment for us. We’ve been working extremely hard over the past few years to improve data quality throughout the trust so we can provide the best care for our patients across the Moorfields network and help research through high quality diagnostic information."
