Introduction: As the volume of data and analyses grows with time, so does the need to present this increasingly complex information in an accessible and clinically informative manner which is responsive to, and reflects the nature of, the enquiries made by those seeking to access the data. The UK Renal Registry interactive data portal: The UK Renal Registry (UKRR) now has a bespoke interactive data portal which provides a focussed point of access to a variety of graphical display formats and analyses of UKRR data including: – Centre-specific reports – a distillation of annual UKRR data including a colour-coded dashboard summary as well as both funnel plots and longitudinal statistical process control charts for a range of clinical parameters. – Interactive flash-based longitudinal Statistical Process Control charts on a per-centre and per-parameter basis allowing for a more detailed review of performance over time. These charts are the interactive correlates of those available in the centre-specific reports. – Rosling/Gapminder-style motion charts on a perparameter basis simultaneously detailing performance and activity data from multiple centres interactively over time (more details below). – An interactive graphical pivot chart solution using OLAP technology allowing users to design and export their own charts/analyses in real-time using UKRR data. Conclusion: This work builds strongly on the wealth of information arising from the high-quality validated UKRR datasets. The portal will empower and engage the UK renal community in the comparative analysis of delivered renal care ultimately leading to enhanced quality improvement over time.
