Reference: Change Request 335
Version No: 1.55
Subject: Meta Model
Type of Change: Fundamental Data standards
Effective Date: 25 February 2004
Reason for Change: The purpose of the meta model is to cohesively support the development and maintenance of NHS data standards in a consistent and integrated manner that also supports the business process within and across the NHS, and with other non-NHS organisations involved with the care of patients.

Background:

The current NHS Data Dictionary data model has developed over the past 12 years. It supports the collection, exchange and comparison of primarily secondary care data based upon an organisation and administrative perspective. Increasingly the need is to have a data model which, whilst still supporting all the organisational needs, is based primarily upon the patient and is focused upon patient care and patient journeys within and across organisations.

Recent data standards development work associated with Revison of Waiting and Booking Information (RoWBI), clinical data sets, patient based central returns and e-gov/e-gif all require or would benefit from a patient based data model which also reflects the business process within the NHS. Therefore, the meta data model will be person/clinical centric rather than organisation centric. It will be based around generic 'activity' for a person/patient at an 'activity location' using 'resources'.

The meta data model will form the underpinning common structure which can be used by all future data sets related to patients and care activity whether they be 'administrative', 'clinical', 'management' etc.

A full review of the NHS Data Dictionary has been done in order to bring existing information into line with the Meta Data Model. This is to facilitate support of legacy data standards and alignment with NPfIT. This will therefore enable both legacy data standards and new data standards to be supported during the implementation of and migration to NPfIT. There may be further pieces of work which follow to ensure consistency of the NHS Data Dictionary with the National Programme and other evolving data standards.Summary of changes:

META ACTIVITY

Change to Class: New Class

META ACTIVITY

This is a meta model class.

A activity which has an identifiable purpose and uses one or more resource in performance of it.

This is used as a general class that groups all activities. It identifies the characteristics that apply to all kinds of activities. Sub types of META ACTIVITY show the particular business activities and their attributes and relationships that relate to the care profession. These include:

- Clinical Interventions
- Clinics
- Appointments

Each META ACTIVITY must have one or more META CHANGE ACTIVITY STATES which are identified by specific subtypes. Each state represents an instance of an event for the META ACTIVITY.

A META ACTIVITY may be broken down into a related series of subordinate META ACTIVITIES all of which must be related to the owning META ACTIVITY.



This class is also known by these names:
Context Alias
plural META ACTIVITIES




Attributes of this Class are:

K META ACTIVITY IDENTIFIER




Each meta_activity

must be activity with one or more META CHANGE ACTIVITY STATE
may be qualified by one or more META ACTIVITY QUALIFIER
may be carried out at one and only one META ACTIVITY SITE
may be comprise qualification of one or more META DIRECT ACTIVITY QUALIFIER

It may be intrinsic to the META ACTIVITY, e.g. the body site or approach for a surgical procedure, an association to another META ACTIVITY, e.g. that one META ACTIVITY is part of another, or an association with a META PERSON PROPERTY, e.g. that a particular diagnosis is the reason for performing a META ACTIVITY.



This class is also known by these names:

META CARE ACTIVITY

Change to Class: New Class

META CARE ACTIVITY

This is a meta model class.

A type of META ACTIVITY.

An activity can be concerned with the assessment (e.g. weigh patient, assess housing needs), diagnosis, treatment or care of a META PATIENT, or that supports the provision of care (request analysis of sample, recall patient) to a subject of care (e.g. META PATIENT).

Examples of a META CARE ACTIVITY include:
   OUT-PATIENT ATTENDANCE CONSULTANT
   THEATRE CASE
   HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL

Each META CARE ACTIVITY may have one or more states which are identified by specific META CHANGE ACTIVITY STATE. Each state represents an instance of an event for the META CARE ACTIVITY.

A META CARE ACTIVITY may be broken down into a related series of subordinate META CARE ACTIVITIES all of which must be related to the owning META CARE ACTIVITY. Each subordinate META CARE ACTIVITY may be further broken down into a related series of subordinate META CARE ACTIVITIES and so on and so on.

For example, a HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL could involve several WARD STAYS, CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS or required activities such as x-rays to be carried out at different times during the period of the spell. Each of these CLINICAL INTERVENTIONS or activities are themselves META CARE ACTIVITIES each of which can be separately scheduled and provided in the same way as the HOSPITAL PROVIDER SPELL itself.
