PICANet Annual Dataset Freeze 2023

The PICANet dataset for the period 01.01.2020 to 31.12.2022 will be frozen at 12 midnight on 31st March 2023; it is essential that all event data for this period is completed and all validation queries resolved.

For children admitted prior to 31st December 2022 who remain as inpatients on your unit please ensure that all daily intervention data up to and including 31st December 2022 is complete.

Although there has been a reduction in the submission time of data to PICANet from three months to two months (PCCS standards 2021), we have not brought forward the data freeze this year due to the current climate. However, next year we plan to freeze on 01st March 2024 to be in line with the new standards.

Thank you all for your efforts to work to 31st March to enter and validate the data.
