The EBI programme is committed to continuous improvement, including enhancing the data underpinning the clinical guidance. There will be regular reviews of the coding, for example the programme team is exploring the potential link between EBI data with the Diagnostic Imaging Database (DID) and the Patient Level Information and Costing System (PLICS). This joint working with other datasets and improvement programmes will enable and ensure alignment of any developments, therefore reducing any duplication in work.
