The Model Health System

The Model Health System is a data-driven improvement tool that enables NHS health systems and trusts to benchmark quality and productivity. By identifying opportunities for improvement, the Model Health System empowers NHS teams to continuously improve care for patients. The Model Health System incorporates the Model Hospital, which provides hospital provider-level benchmarking.

Access the Model Health System

How it works

The Model Health System can be used by anyone in the NHS from board to ward. You can explore and compare productivity, quality and responsiveness data to easily identify opportunities to improve.

We provide relevant data for acute, ambulance mental health and community NHS trusts, and have recently created the Model Health System which provides operational and system-level data across your local STP or ICS.

You can use the Model Health System to dive deeper into your data and compare with peers to understand what good looks like and identify areas for improvement.

Access policy

All NHS staff can access Model Health System. Staff in NHS trusts and commissioning organisations can view and download their own organisation’s data, compared to other trusts, national averages, and peer groups. Within the Model Health System, users can also switch to view any other provider across their ICS or STP, and at an aggregated System-level. Staff from NHS arms-length bodies and the Department of Health and Social Care and its agencies can also access the tool. By exception, time-limited access may be granted to other types of user, with the consent of a provider or of NHS England and NHS Improvement.
