EDISON is a real-time national information system that records and shares information on patients delayed, the care setting in which they are delayed and the main reason for the delay. ISD generates monthly management reports and publishes quarterly reports for all Partnerships. These reports state the total number of hospital bed days associated with all delays, including delays recorded as ‘code 9’ where it is recognised that discharge is out with the immediate control of the NHS or local authority. Code 9 includes patients awaiting a highly specialist facility and where an interim option is not appropriate, patients for whom an interim move is deemed unreasonable, and delays as a result of adults with incapacity legislation.
