Owen will spend his time as a NICE Scholar focusing on developing a mechanism in the trust to monitor NICE Inverventional Procedure activity (IPG) through integrating Clinical Coding and information systems including the Operating Room Information Management System (ORMIS). This is with a view to enabling the organisation and potenitally other trusts to analyse the number of interventional procedures undertaken, whether clinician(s) have been credentialed to under take the procedure and what the outcomes are for patients, post procedure. Coding of NICE interventional procedures will enable the development of appropriate costing (tariff) of NICE interventional procedures. It is his aim to publish the work as a result of this project.
