For many years the great work of structured education providers has gone unreported in the National Diabetes Audit (NDA). The Yorkshire and the Humber Clinical Network has done a survey for the last 3 years and proved that ducators are providing an efficient and responsive service way above anything that is being reported. Historically, data on education has been taken from the GP clinical record.
The results of the survey have helped to lobby the NDA and there is now a simple way for providers to upload structured education attendance data directly to the NDA through their Clinical Audit Platform. Providers should still send a letter to the GP practices or enter data directly on to SystmOne, but now won’t be reliant on the GP practices having to enter this data on their systems any more.
Data can be sent as a bulk upload and an initial upload of data from 1/1/2017 can be submitted – or earlier data if the providers have access to it. As the data is recorded against the individual patient, one upload is sufficient even if the providers cover two or more areas.
The upload process is very simple andrequires only 4 pieces of information for each patient:

Key things to note:
You will see from the tutorial that this is a very straightforward process which can be done by admin support. The NDA ask that at least one of the providers in each area register and upload their data in this way (you can register multiple people to upload):
