What does it show?
SSNAP summary reports provide SSNAP results at domain and key indicator level, making adjustments to overall scores based on case ascertainment and audit compliance, before finally giving an overall SSNAP score.
These outputs are available for the following levels: national. These are available on a regional and team level for reporting periods prior to April-June 2018.
How can you use it?
This report aims to provide a summary of performance and the recommendation is that this report should be the entry point for understanding stroke performance.
Both patient-centred and team-centred results are provided for each key indicator. The key indicators are then grouped into domains, and each domain is given a performance level (level A to E).
The domain levels are then combined into patient-centred and team-centred Total Key Indicator scores. The Combined Total Key Indicator score is derived from the average of these two scores, and is adjusted for case ascertainment and audit compliance to derive the SSNAP score. The methodology aims to take into account guideline recommendations and clinical consensus.
The SSNAP score is calculated from Key Indicator scores which are grouped into 10 domains.
Domain 1: Scanning
Domain 2: Stroke unit
Domain 3: Thrombolysis
Domain 4: Specialist assessments
Domain 5: Occupational therapy
Domain 6: Physiotherapy
Domain 7: Speech and language therapy
Domain 8: Multidisciplinary team working
Domain 9: Standards by discharge
Domain 10: Discharge processes
The domain scores are calculated by combining the scores of the Key Indicators within the domain. The key indicator scores are typically the percentage performance in each KI, but for median timings and some other KIs it is necessary to take a different approach.
