Agenda released for HTN Now AI, Analytics and Data

Join HTN and colleagues on 30 November for the second in the HTN Now Focus series – five one-day online events to include: Supporting Digital Integrated Care Systems; AI, Analytics and Data; Electronic Patient Records; Digital Strategy, Transformation and Change; and Digital Mental Health.

For the AI, Analytics and Data edition, we’ll explore an algorithm used by Medway NHS Foundation Trust to support staff retention, hear about digital programmes at NENC ICS, welcome the University of Essex for a session on social media as an early warning system, listen to Ideal Health discuss the challenges, requirements and potential solutions for delivering data, and watch a presentation by HDRUK on using advanced analytics to understand COVID-19 hospital readmissions.

Join us for an agenda that includes:

  • 9:00 – NHS Shared Business Services and Medway NHS Foundation Trust share their innovative work around NHS staff retention

The two organisations developed a new workforce analytics solution, which uses data science techniques to improve retention by predicting – with 95 per cent accuracy – which individual employees are at increased risk of leaving. Working with data scientists and workforce experts, the partnership analysed historic data from staff and leavers over a five-year period, with an aim to prove that statistical modelling could be used to accurately predict an employee departure. The model identifies and assigns a weighted numerical risk score to a range of primary and secondary factors, which when combined can determine the probability of an individual leaving.

  • 10:00 – Improving data and analytics to enhance practice and patient experience

In this webinar from Ideal Health, the panel of experts will explore the challenges, requirements and potential solutions for delivering data, analytics and information that create an accurate picture of a patient’s care and enable improvements in practice, patient experience and safety.

  • 11:00 – North East and North Cumbria ICS

Ian Davison, Business Information Services Director, NENC ICS will take us through some of the data, analytics and automation programmes used across the ICS.

  • 12:00 – Using advanced analytics to understand COVID-19 hospital readmissions

Almost one third of patients admitted to hospital in the UK with COVID-19 are re-admitted. Sepsis, pneumonia and heart failure have been reported as common readmission diagnoses, with 20 per cent of patients needing to be treated in intensive care.  A new study supported in partnership by Health Data Research UK and The Alan Turing Institute has been established to examine why there is such a large number of readmissions, identify those at risk of readmission and the potential long-term health problems after COVID-19. The study will apply artificial intelligence approaches to the data infrastructure established by the National Core Studies into COVID-19. This work will optimise individual patient care and inform policy to help predict unplanned hospital readmissions, therefore protecting the NHS at a time of strain.

  • 1:00 – Social media as an early warning system for the NHS, Dr Farhana Liza, University of Essex

Is the current Yellow Card Scheme fit for purpose and could social media be used as an early warning system?   This webinar will demonstrate how you can benefit from this organic evolution of data and how it is opening a new world of information for the NHS.

The session includes case studies; adverse reactions (statistics, pictures, NLP and the personal story behind each experience); unproven treatments – protecting the public; reducing the delay in NICE guidelines updates – supporting innovation; and a segment entitled ‘mental health or suicide prediction? detecting suicidality on Twitter –  catching someone before they fall’.
