TrustCompare is an application which compares how different NHS hospital trusts care for cancer patients. Different hospital trusts specialise in different treatments, and so comparing how care is given between trusts is difficult. But comparing trusts is useful to help commissioners in the NHS decide how best to deliver cancer services.
The application was built by one of our summer 2019 interns, Andrew. Andrew built the app using R, R Shiny and Plotly.
The comparison app demonstrated proof of principle. Further work is required in order to make this available to the NHS.
