Welcome to the latest edition of the InstantAtlas blog news – our monthly round-up of projects where InstantAtlas software solutions are used to map and present statistics in interactive dynamic reports and profiles.
In this edition we review two case studies from Diabetes UK and New Zealand’s Health Quality & Safety Commission, plus we have two new ‘InstantAtlas Essentials’ videos for you to watch.
Helping people with Diabetes ensure they are getting appropriate levels of care with an interactive online reporting tool
Diabetes UK is a charity that cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of every person affected by or at risk of diabetes. There are currently 3.8 million people in the UK with diabetes, including an estimated 850,000 people who have Type 2 diabetes but do not know it. The charity is committed to ensuring that people with diabetes receive high-quality care wherever they live, and that they know what care to expect.
The charity says getting all the checks, seeing the right healthcare professionals and understanding diabetes are vital in supporting the best possible self-management. To help people with diabetes see how local services are measuring up the charity has compiled a checklist of 15 healthcare essentials that should be provided in each local area. This campaign is part of an initiative called Diabetes Watch and aims to shine a light on the very best services, identifying examples of excellent care, and identify those areas where more needs to be done.
New Zealand’s Health Quality & Safety Commission
How interactive mapping software is being used by New Zealand’s Health Quality & Safety Commission
New Zealand’s Health Quality & Safety Commission (HQSC) was set up to ensure all New Zealanders get the best health and disability care within available resources. Its role is wide ranging and includes: providing advice to the Minister of Health on how quality and safety in health and disability support services may be improved; leading and coordinating improvements in safety and quality in health care; identifying key health and safety indicators (such as events resulting in injury or death) to inform and monitor improvements in safety and quality and reporting on safety and quality, including performance against national indicators.
Catherine Gerard is a Senior Analyst in Health Quality and Evaluation at HQSC. She works with Richard Hamblin on the New Zealand Atlas of Healthcare Variation and also on developing quality and safety measures.
