BADS Directory of Procedures has been updated with new OPCS 4.10 codes

The BADS Directory of Procedures National Dataset (DOP) has been updated. Back

It provides recommended day case rates for over 200 surgical procedures, arranged by specialty and defined using OPCS coding. It now includes new OPCS 4.10 codes, all codes are now four-character and some procedure names have been clarified. The day-case rates quoted are arrived at by a combination of reported practice from leaders in their field, actual rates from Hospital Episode Statistics figures and expert opinion.

The National Dataset is produced in collaboration with Caspe Healthcare Knowledge Systems using their hospital benchmarking solution iCompare. It shows the day surgery performance of the top achieving 5%, and 50% of English hospitals for all the operations listed in the BADS Directory of Procedures, with potential release of inpatient beds and cost savings achieved by maximising day case rates.
