National Paediatric Diabetes Audit - Data submission for 2012/13
The RCPCH Electronic Web Platform and NPDA data submission for 2012/13
We are pleased to announce that the RCPCH Electronic Web Platform is now open to accept submissions for the 2012-13 National Paediatric Diabetes Audit.
The NPDA 2012-13 will collect data for patients that were seen at Paediatric Diabetes Units (PDUs) between 1 April 2012 until 31 March 2013 up to and including 24 years of age during the audit year. As such, all 'Visit Dates' submitted must fall within this period.
Full details about this year’s audit are included in the updated (PDF, 1.2MB). We kindly ask that you read this guide carefully prior to submitting your data as it contains important details about data submission and Web Platform functionality that did not apply in previous years (e.g. sharing data between users and resubmitting data by CSV).
The Electronic Web Platform will provide users with a ‘real time’ continuous Data Quality Report as soon as you submit, or begin to submit, your unit’s data. Full details on how to access, interpret and use these Data Quality Reports are detailed in Section 4 of the updated (PDF, 1.2MB)
Data may be submitted for 3 months, until 5:00pm on January 31 2014. After this time, users will no longer be able to submit, review or amend any data for the 2012‐13 NPDA.
- The will remain the same as for last year, as will the (.csv, 2KB) Please ensure that the format of your data matches the format specified in this dataset document (eg dates must be in the format DD/MM/YYYY and not DD-MM-YYYY or any other variation thereof).
Again, we ask that units submit details of ALL patient visits conducted during the 12 month audit period.
- As with last year, users will be able to submit either by uploading a single, comprehensive CSV file or by completing an online form for each patient visit.
The RCPCH would like to thank you in advance for your continued support of the NPDA which has the ultimate aim of improving outcomes for children and young people with diabetes.
RCPCH Electronic Web Platform registration
Users who have previously been approved to use the RCPCH Electronic Web Platform to submit NPDA data do not need to register again this year and their login details remain valid.
Any additional users who wish to submit NPDA data for 2012/13 must first seek Caldicott Guardian approval and submit a completed Web Platform to the RCPCH. Once this form has been submitted you may then register for an account at the following page and await approval from an NPDA administrator.
About the RCPCH Electronic Web Platform
A new Electronic Web Platform has been developed by the RCPCH which will allow data to be entered for each patient in your clinic. Centres will be able to either upload their NPDA data in CSV format (as in previous years) from Twinkle.NET, Diamond and System 1 databases which will be fully integrated with the new web platform.
The web platform will allow multiple data entries on different dates during the audit year for single variables (eg HbA1c). This will allow the audit to present a fuller picture of diabetes outcomes.
