Participating organisations based in England, please be aware that PICANet has been granted an exemption from the National Data Opt-Out by the Health Research Authority Clinical Advisory Group. This is because the absence of even one child’s data can lead to inaccurate conclusions. This means that even if a National Data Opt-Out has been set, the child’s clinical audit data can still be entered into the PICANet web database. Please note that from 31st July 2022, PICANet will however apply the National Data Opt-Out to the PICANet research database to ensure that no children are included in any research projects where an opt-out has been applied.
PICANet need to take the database offline on Wednesday lunchtime to allow us to complete some maintenance work which should enable participating organisations to resume importing data files. Please save your work and exit the application before this time, any unsaved work will be lost. Please consider the system at risk until the news item in the PICANet web database has been removed.
The PICANet dataset for the period 01.01.2019 to 31.12.2021 has been rescheduled to be frozen at 12 midnight on 30th June 2022. It is essential that all event data for this period is completed and all validation queries resolved.
For children admitted prior to December 31st 2021 who remain as inpatients on your unit please ensure that all daily intervention data up to and including 31st December 2021 is complete.
If you have any concerns about the dataset freeze, please do get in touch with the team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
