CHKS focus on the information and underlying data that drives mortality indicators to get to the root of the issue, identifying what needs to happen to reduce mortality

Using the information and benchmarking programmes we have developed over the last 25 years, our NHS-experienced consultants are able to interpret a vast array of data and identify priority areas for further investigation and improvement. We apply our skills and know-how to help trusts understand the reasons for high mortality rates and engage clinicians and board members in the effort to understand and improve mortality measurement.

Ensuring the accuracy of healthcare data is core to our work and we provide a range of services to support information governance, including: coding audits, coding process improvement and coder training.

Mortality Profiling

Our Mortality Profiling programme is the only one that allows you to understand variances across SHMI, RAMI and HMSR. This takes the most accurate and robust view of mortality available, enabling you to make more informed decisions to drive change and improvement.  It helps you to quickly understand your ‘true’ mortality position at any time and highlights areas of concern for further investigation. Our programme includes an online tool, supported by CHKS consultancy to help you identify risks and opportunities and make improvements in safety and care quality.

CHKS account management is invaluable. I know I will get the one-to-one support from someone who understands the way an NHS trust works and that makes a big difference when it comes to interpreting data.
