Spine Mini Services
 What are Spine Mini Services?
 Services that allow you to retrieve information direct from the
spine - in real time.
 SMS options:
 Verify NHS number
 Get NHS number
 Get patient’s demographic details
 Why Mini?
 Reduced options - we can’t update the spine - something we
need to take forward with cfh - hcic
 Having retrieved the data we get to decide what to do with it.
Why introduce spine mini services
• Interested in ITK
• Technology partners of intersystems
• To improve our data quality
– Non spine compliant PAS
– No real time access to up to date demographic
information
– Few NHS numbers for newly registered patients,
reducing our ability to communicate with other
healthcare providers in a timely fashion.
PICTS, SMS Implementation
 Worked with InterSystems and CFH through Common
Assurance Process (CAP)

Queries to DQ Team
 Spine Mini Services live May 2012
Benefits
 Patient safety - Large reduction in the number of discharge
summaries and other correspondence being sent to the wrong
GP.

sent to the wrong address.
 Patient safety – documented incident where a patient
was linked to the wrong (deceased) patient. – DQ alerted
in real time.
 Patient safety – documented incident where a patient
was linked to the correct (deceased) patient. – patient
had been incorrectly recorded as deceased on the spine
– DQ alerted in real time, GP informed, spine corrected
Benefits
 Patient safety - documented incident where a long term
regular patient was found to have the wrong NHS
number recorded against them.
 Patient safety - documented incident where a patient
was linked to the wrong patient on iPM and the details
adjusted to match.
 Its quick and saves time - DQ team. They update iPM
and the NHS number appears checked and verified in
seconds.
 Reduction in calls to DQ team.
Caveats
• The spine is a good source of data – but it is not
perfect
• Humans exist on both sides of the primary
secondary care divide. – and humans make
mistakes.
• Bad practice - Documented incident(s) where patient’s
address fields have been used for other purposes,
overwriting their actual address and delaying
treatments.

Summary
• Spine mini services improves patient care, saves time and is
one of the key enablers to the safe sharing of information
across healthcare organisations.
• Spine mini services, in conjunction with business rules
improves data quality at the trust, at the GP practice and on the
spine and helps to identify mistakes early.
• Supported by HSCIC we should look to standardise on
business rules to support spine mini services.
• Supported by HSCIC we should look to standardise on
workflow elements to support spine mini services.
