The Clinical Effectiveness Group at Queen Mary University of London, one of our partners, has been successfully using online tools to improve care in a number of ways. In this case study, we hear about how it works and what it’s helped achieve in three East London boroughs.
Three east London CCGs (City & Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham) have performed exceptionally well on a wide variety of metrics in the 2015/16 Quality and Outcomes Framework results by optimizing IT systems for Quality Improvement.
City & Hackney and Tower Hamlets came either 1st or 2nd in 18 out of 65 (28%) of clinical indicators, while Newham was in the top 20 in 5 of the indicators. The outstanding performances of these CCGs are especially significant given the historic health inequalities in the region.
