A quality improvement project and trials within cohort platform for cystic fibrosis

The Data Observatory project aims to build on the work of the CFHealthHub platform, using objective adherence data from 17 UK CF centres to help improve the care that people with CF (pwCF) receive at a local and national level.

The project aims to do this in two ways:

  • First, adherence data collected using dose-counting nebulisers, will be shared with CF healthcare professionals via the CFHealthHub platform – this information can then be used within routine care encounters and within Quality Improvement projects to help shape the care delivered in CF centres in supporting pwCF to self-manage their treatments successfully;
  • Second, the ‘Trials within Cohorts’ (TwiCs) research database is intended to hold data for a large number of pwCF for future research studies, centred around behaviour change. This approach will help CF researchers to overcome the difficulties associated with conducting research in rare conditions such as high costs and poor recruitment. We have currently recruited 899 patients, across 17 different UK CF centres to the CFHealthHub Data Observatory. The intention is to recruit up to 6,000 adults with CF to contribute objective adherence data to the CFHealthHub platform over the next 4 years.

More detailed information on the study can be found in the protocol which is available to download via the ‘Downloads’ box on the right. We are also working with the Sheffield Microsystem Coaching Academy on the quality improvement aspects of the project – more information about their work can be found here.

CFHealthHub development

CFHealthHub is an agile software development collaborative. Over the project, programmers at the Farr Institute based in the University of Manchester are making constant updates to improve the website and apps. Patient and staff feedback are a key influence in the changes to CFHealthHub, and a fortnightly teleconference is available for centre staff to discuss the software with the designers and programme developers at the Farr Institute.

Phase 2 data salience

The Data Observatory opened in 2017 in three UK Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Centres. Over 2017 these three CF centres have focused on the recruitment of over 300 patients. Each patient has been given a chipped nebulisers that uploads real time information about medication use to the website and app ‘CFHealthHub’. Participants undergo a two month baseline measurement period, followed by a set up appointment where they are given access to CFHealthHub. Participants are then offered adherence support as required or requested, this support is based upon the behavioural intervention that is current being tested in the CFHealthHub RCT. Clinicians in the CF centres have also been given access to CFHealthHub and will receive training on how best to use this tool in their role.

Phase 2 milestones
  • Set up and open Sheffield, Nottingham and Southampton CF centres as Data Observatory sites.
  • Interventionists employed full time in Nottingham and Southampton.
  • Study devices ordered and distributed to patients.
  • 100 patients at each centre completing a baseline period by July 2018.
  • Lung function and BMI entered into CFHealthHub for each participant.
  • Pseudomonas status data collected.
  • Collaboration between centres and central research team to restructure the adherence support intervention to fit into each CF team (new manual to be released in 2018).
  • Begin a process evaluation to understand the implementation of CFHealthHub.
Phase 3 quality improvement cycles

One of main aims of the Data Observatory is to understand and support the integration of CFHealthHub into Cystic Fibrosis (CF) teams. CFHealthHub will provide clinical teams with the real time adherence of their patients, allowing patients to be visible outside of routine clinic appointments.

This visibility will help increase the focus of care on prevention, and over time reduce the burden and cost of ‘rescue’.

However, the implementation of technological and behavioural interventions in healthcare is difficult [1].

To overcome this challenge the Data Observatory is partnered with the Micro System Coaching Academy (MCA), who use Clinical Microsystems methodology [2]. Supported by the MCA, each CF team can make iterative changes to their ‘system’ and test how this impacts upon the integration of adherence data from CFHealthHub.

The Data Observatory will support teams to collect baseline data and to measure change scientifically. Improving the ‘system’ at each centre will help reduce the pressure of introducing CFHealthHub.

We hope that using this quality improvement method will help teams overcome the difficulties of implementation.

Training and support for quality improvement is provided by the MCA and the Data Observatory study team. Quality improvement courses have been hosted during 2017 in Nottingham and Southampton.

Since then, each centre, led by the CFHealthHub Interventionist, has begun to identify “5 P’s” (Purpose, Patients, Professionals, Processes, Patterns).

In doing so, they will collect data on service use and clinic flow, and build a detailed understanding of their services and the areas for improvement.

In June 2018 all three CF teams will have access to aggregated patient adherence data from baseline data collected as part of the Data Observatory. This will allow them to see their patient’s normal adherence alongside the data collected about their service.

Supported by the MCA and Data Observatory study team, the three centres will work together at a series of collaborative events to plan improvement cycles and share ideas and successes.

Phase 4 legacy platform

During 2019 and 2020 we have worked with eighteen UK CF centres to integrate CFHealthHub adherence data into routine clinical care. Using the learning from phase three, the centres apply quality improvement cycles and behaviour change techniques, to integrate CFHealthHub as a resource accessible to all of the MDT. English sites were able to access NHS England CQUIN funding (PSS CF self care CQUIN). The funding allowed each centre to have a dedicated behaviour change specialist to support patients and the clinical team. The CQUIN also provided a day a week pharmacist for each of the fourteen English NHS Trusts. This supported the EMBRACE workstream, exploring how CFHealthHub adherence data can be used for medicines optimisation.

During COVID19 we have changed some of our processes to allow CFHealthHub to be used as a tool for virtual care. To find out more, please see the protocol or contact the study manager.
