We are experts in national and local data flows. We are one of four national DSCROs (Data Services for Commissioners Regional Office) accredited by NHS Digital to handle patient identifiable data securely. We provide this service to over 70 CCGs and are the largest supplier of business intelligence to NHS commissioners. NEL’s DSCRO provides the means by which data can be de-identified but still linked to provide that system wide view across health and social care.
Data is pseudonymised to allow consistent identification of an individual without the use of patient-identifiable data, allowing local data to be linked with national datasets. Our conformed centralised data warehouse feeds enable us to do things rapidly at scale. As part of our service portfolio, we can push your data into your own data warehouse to be interrogated by CCG analysts or our dedicated analytics function.
Our expertise in Information Governance provides assurance for NELIE.
