NVD - record status November 09-November 10...are all your records available for analysis?
The graph below shows the status of AAA records on the NVD per month from November 2009 until November 2010. The White bars represent records that have key data fields complete, the Yellow bars represent records that have all the mandatory fields completed but are still missing some key data. The Red bars represent records that have incomplete mandatory data fields. When records are Yellow and White they can be included in any data analyses that are performed, however Red records cannot be included because the mandatory fields must be complete in order for the records to be analysed.
Please ensure all your data is entered into the NVD and that your red records are updated as soon as possible. We realise that this requires significant effort by all contributors, but with complete data entry we will be confident in our data analysis reports in addition to demonstrating a commitment to gathering data to support patient safety. Those centres collecting data in house for upload should try and upload at least 3 monthly. The upload facility is functioning well and uploads should be carried out as soon as possible.
