Using NETIMIS to investigate alcohol-related admissions and model variations in patient demographics to better understand the care pathway in the North West Coast
- Using NETIMIS to investigate alcohol-related admissions and model variations in patient demographics
The NHS is facing increasing demand to provide a high-quality service for modern health problems with its limited resources to support growth which has been described as “the biggest challenge in its existence” (MyHealthNHS 2018). To tackle these challenges, the government has funded a £20 million programme across the North of England called CHC (Connected Health Cities). CHC aim to better understand and apply healthcare data to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the NHS.
This project involves a collaboration with the University of Liverpool, from CHC’s North West Coast division, and X-Lab, from the Connected Yorkshire division of CHC, to construct a real-world representation of the healthcare system for alcohol misuse care with a focus on alcohol related admissions.
