Responding to the launch of the NHS Digital and PHIN’s consultation on the Acute Data Alignment Programme (ADAPt), David Hare, Chief Executive of the Independent Healthcare Providers Network said: 

“The recent Paterson inquiry report rightly called for much more of a ‘whole systems’ approach to patient safety and data transparency.

“In seeking to better align NHS and independent sector data, the ADAPt programme represents a key step towards the seamless flow of data along the patient journey – helping to ensure full visibility of the safety and effectiveness of care delivered by all providers, and enabling patients to make the most informed choices about their treatment.”
