Discovery Data Service

This section will be updated with known issues, and updates, to the DDS and changes relevant to subscribers of Discovery data.

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

We are aware of an issue inside amazon eu-west, affecting a handful of the DDS servers. Upon further investigation, we have found that Core02, one of the main internal FHIR stores, is down and has halted the data transform into and out of the DDS. This is affecting the live ADT feeds and the EMIS data. The Vision and TPP data that was received earlier has already passed through end-to-end processing, so is not affected.

This will also have a knock-on effect to the remote subscriber databases that receive ADT and EMIS data, as we are unable to process any new data until this is back online.

Our hosting team are closely monitoring the situation and we will update our customers as soon as we have more information.

Resolved - AWS have resolved the issue and the affected DDS servers are now online. The DDS will now commence with receiving and transforming todays data, which should be completed overnight, however we will provide a further update if this is not the case.

COVID-19 vaccinations

How long does it take to get the COVID-19 vaccination notifications into the patient records in EMIS Web?

EMIS have informed us that "data is collected by NHS Digital at 22:00 each day, comprising all vaccination data received in that last 24 hour period. NHS Digital send us this data the following day and we will perform a daily upload of these vaccination notifications during that afternoon."

12 May 2021 EMIS Missing Codes EMIS have sent a re-bulk of the Coding_ClinicalCode and Coding_DrugCode files. This has created a large delta for every EMIS practice, as well as the need to re-process some existing data. Due to this, it is taking longer than usual to process the EMIS data and is affecting the processing of other supplier data.

9 February 2021 EMIS data not received This practice has moved from TPP to EMIS but no EMIS data has been received. Data in the DDS in from TPP and only complete until August 2020. This data has been requested from EMIS. Ongoing F86658 Yes NEL
13 May 2020 Registration data status The daily GPSoC IM1 EMIS extract does not include registration status data, which is key in working out a list of registered patients at an EMIS Web GP practice. The daily extract includes the registration date and registration type (e.g. Regular/GMS) but, without the registration status, it’s not possible to match registered patient counts between EMIS Web and DDS because EMIS Web factors the current registration status into its calculation of registered patients. Similarly, the regular extract doesn’t include the 'original term' recorded against each record in the CareRecord_Observation file. EMIS Web allows a free-text term to be recorded against any observation, effectively overwriting the term from the clinical code selected. Without this free-text term, a number of observations are apparently meaningless when viewing a patient record. Ongoing

5 May 2021 TPP Maintenance 'TPP are performing some essential maintenance work which may affect the Strategic Reporting Extracts in your area. This work may cause your delta extracts tonight to be larger than usual and therefore may include data which has already been included in your previous extract'
