Site Specific Reports
The latest analysis of site specific reports for 2015/16 Q3 have now been produced and sent to Burn Services. Each quarter other reports are produced and sent directly to Burn Services.
Some historic reports are available under your site specific log-in details. These log-in details are available from your Burn Care Network Manager. The use of a site specific password, or specific access rights using a registered name and password is necessary to gain access.
All reports are derived using the most recently updated iBID software, which has successfully been deployed in all English Burn Services. The data from Wales is currently being supplied in the old format, but plans are in place for this to be corrected. The reports are based on some of the the original templates in use over recent years but have been reduced in number in line with user feedback. The plan is to put in place a far more comprehensive set of web based reporting tools, configurable by the user.
Some general reports are accessible to non-registered / public users. The design of burn service reports for public use is under way and drafts have been circulated to stakeholders for comment. It is anticipated that stakeholders will inform the Burn Care Informatics Group how best to publish these.
Please take a look and suggest any changes that might be helpful. . . .
Any identified problems will be dealt with according to cause - some will be local and may need resolution by the Burn Service with support from the Burn Care Network Manager, whilst others may represent technical problems requiring support from the iBID team centrally.
Introduction and Welcome
This site will hopefully be of interest to you if you are looking for information about burn injury.
In the different sections there is information about the common causations, susceptible age and social groups and healthcare consequences of this type of injury. Elsewhere on the site there is information about how burn care services are assessed and some information about the work being done to stimulate the process of continual self-assessment and quality of care improvement.
There are articles on the matter of injury registry creation and running. Accumulated experience since 1992 may be of interest to those involved in this area of work, or to those misguided/optimistic enough to want to start!
It may be of interest to some that with the current level of development of both the iBID and iBCS software along with the centralised analysis and reporting systems, it is now possible to offer them both to an unlimited number of burn services. Expressions of interest should be made through the 'Contact Us' menu.
Some areas of the websites are open to the public, however many of the specific reports and functions, including downloadable software, are only available to registered users of the site. Because of changes to the function of this website, registration will only be available to those that have a demonstrable role in burn care provision or its organisation, as of November 2013 it will no longer be available to other users. Previously registered users may find they have been de-registered. It is thus imperative that if registration is being sought, all relevant details should be provided at the time of registration. This information will be independently verified.
Should you have comments, suggestions or criticisms to offer please use the 'Contact Us' menu item to let us hear from you.
