2a. ACTIVITIES AT CARE SYSTEM LEVEL
At this stage, care systems will know which organisations are working together and their governance structure will be in place. This section identifies the range of activities a care system could consider undertaking in support of integrated care. The tool provides a table of Secondary Data Use Activities.
The next stage will then establish which organisations have the lawful basis to conduct the requested activities and begin to identify the required data controller and processor arrangements.
The activities have undergone testing with various local care systems and national agencies. The activities will be reviewed and updated periodically if needs evolve.
It is important that care systems consider carefully the range of activities which they may want to undertake to only choose those which are necessary and justifiable for the work they need to carry out. Selecting too many may not fit within the scope of legal basis and selecting too few may result in the need to have to revise data access requests and sharing agreements.
You should now determine and record:
- the scope of activities that your care system wishes to undertake, using the activity assessment tool (opens in new window)
- if a care system has already identified their activities and just wish to check they haven’t missed anything, the tabulation is a useful mechanism to do this and also to facilitate the use of consistent language to describe activities.
- in the unlikely event that a care system identifies an activity which is not captured in the list of activities, they will need to note the activity and map it manually to the statutes in stage 2b
This information can be recorded in the SUDGT input tool.
