Hospital Episode Statistics data service

Hospital Episode Statistics data service

Wessex AHSN has access to a platform that allows our staff to query and interrogate Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data. HES data is a database containing details of all admissions, ED attendances and outpatient appointments at NHS hospitals in England. Access to this data allows us to quantify the existing scale and costs of specific patient pathways, which can be used by innovators as a lever for change to demonstrate the improvements they can bring to the NHS.

We have supported numerous companies to analyse the data for queries including: the size and cost of a particular pathway; segmentation of an addressable market; the increase of a group of procedures over time; the admission and discharge methods for a specific condition. If you are an innovator and think that working with HES data would help you develop your business, then please contact Paul Steynor to discuss further.
