PHIN partners with iWGC to support data submissions

PHIN CEO Dr Ian Gargan

The Private Healthcare Information Network (PHIN) has launched a new initiative to enable the free submission of data to PHIN through the iWantGreatCare (iWGC) patient feedback platform.  


The collaboration with iWantGreatCare/Top Doctors (iWGC/TD) focuses on support for the collection and submission of patient satisfaction data, providing hospitals with a simple way to collect the mandated patient feedback questions. The iWGC platform will then submit that data directly to PHIN on their behalf.


PHIN CEO Ian Gargan announced plans for the organisation to work with affiliate companies to provide greater support to providers to help them comply with the CMA Order at its December AGM.


‘It is important for healthcare transparency that we are able to collect large volumes of high-quality data. We know patients value the experiences of those who have undergone procedures before them. Therefore, we are keen to do whatever we can to help providers submit their patient feedback data, so that we can help patients make more informed choices,’ he said.


‘Working with iWGC/TD on this initiative provided a great opportunity for us to create a new avenue for data submission and reduce the burden on hospitals. We will continue to explore ways to develop this relationship, and others, to ensure we provide a gold standard in healthcare data.’


Jon Twinn, MD of iWGC and director of B2B for Top Doctors added: ‘We are delighted to work with PHIN to extend the capabilities of the iWGC platform to the sector and to collect more data that ultimately will help patients find great care.’
