Life QI platform

Life QI is an online quality improvement (QI) platform that makes it easy for teams to run QI projects and organisations to report on QI activity.

UCLPartners and AHSNs across the country are delighted to offer access to local partners in the region at no cost.

Development of the platform

UCLPartners and other AHSNs are working closely with Seedata Ltd to support NHS organisations in managing their improvement projects, and ensuring Life QI meets their needs.

UCLPartners hosts a Life QI user group, and all organisations using the platform within the region are requested to send a representative. This group meets monthly to provide feedback on Life QI, share challenges and progress and contribute to the development roadmap.

Life QI only collects information to support your improvement projects; it is not designed to collect detailed information on users, organisations or patients. You can find more information on information governance (IG) and data security.
