NHS Digital has commissioned the PRSB to undertake a new project to assess the burden placed on healthcare providers when they are collecting and reporting on the Commissioning Data Sets (CDSs).

The purpose of this project is for the PRSB to undertake burden assessments of the data sets across a representative sample of the health and care systems. This will help us obtain a rich and accurate picture of what information is needed to accurately measure and assess burden. We are aiming to take a representative sample of providers at differing levels of digital maturity, as measured by the Digital Maturity Index.

The project will also identify examples of good practice which can be used to inform future work within NHS Digital to minimise the burden of collections for providers and frontline staff, while maximising the data value and helping provide advice to the Secretary of State for Health.
