The challenge

To improve South West London’s (SWL) understanding of impacts on patient health during and post wave 1 of COVID-19. This included the need to better understand how to support and combat problems across patient care, wellbeing, inequalities, local outbreaks, shield list support, testing opportunities, second wave reporting and vulnerable patient first approach via segmentation and stratification.

Our approach

We worked with local acute trusts to develop daily patient level COVID-19 reporting to present in a dashboard. We worked with  South West London CCG, Croydon University Hospital, Kingston Hospital, St Georges Hospital, Epsom and St Helier trusts.

The outcome

A dashboard was created that included all patients in SWL during the pandemic, cutting across, acute, primary care, community, mental health, 111, IAPT, social care and shield list datasets.
