The Data Coordination Board (DCB) closed on 19 November 2020.
Responsibility for the approval of Information Standards and Data Collections (including Extractions) has transferred to the Data Alliance Partnership Board (DAPB).
The following definition will remain in the NHS Data Model and Dictionary as it is relevant for Information Standards and Data Collections (including Extractions) that were assured and approved by the Data Coordination Board.
The Data Coordination Board replaced the Standardisation Committee for Care Information (SCCI) on 1 April 2017.
The Data Coordination Board is one of three sub-groups of the Digital Delivery Board, the other two being the Enterprise Architecture Board and the Technology and Data Investment Board.
The Data Coordination Board:
- has delegated authority from the Secretary of State to approve Information Standard and Collection (including Extractions) (ISCEs) for health and social care
- provides the authority to publish Information Standards Notices (ISN) under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012
- has responsibility for the approval of requests to change, deprecate and retire existing Information Standard and Collection (including Extractions)
- prioritises the progression of Information Standard and Collection (including Extractions)
- works to minimise the burden from Data Sets, and maximise the benefit received from available data
- takes its membership from a wide range of national bodies and ORGANISATIONS involved in the provision and management of health and social care services in England. This ensures a system-wide, joined-up approach to decision-making.
