“Presenting complex data in a meaningful way that has the power to transform care”


The Disease Management Information Toolkit (DMIT) is a good practice toolkit designed to help increase the efficiency of services for children with long-term conditions - asthma, diabetes and epilepsy. It was originally developed by the Department of Health for the NHS to help service providers identify which conditions contribute to high numbers of emergency bed days.

This toolkit is primarily aimed at clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and commissioners of children's health and social care services, although it will inform those working with people with long-term conditions at all levels.

The toolkit uses data already in the public domain to present information in a user-friendly format. It also provides a summary report of key data and information on trends over time and potential cost savings.

The toolkit has information at CCG level on emergency hospital admissions for patients aged under 19 years with a primary diagnosis of asthma, diabetes or epilepsy. It has been updated to include 2012/13 Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) data.

DMIT includes:

  • Emergency admission rates, bed days and lengths of stay against a range of different comparators.
  • Red, amber and green colour coding to highlight where a CCG is better, worse or similar to comparator areas.
  • The ability to download the report as a pdf for printing.

The toolkit uses data from the HES, Health and Social Care Information Centre data warehouse on emergency admissions, emergency bed days and length of stay.
