Developing an

Progress so far

January 2023 - webinars

We held two webinars at the end of January 2023, where we shared the latest iterations of the Digitising Social Care (DiSC) Minimum Operational Data Set (MODS), the DiSC Needs Dataset, the Conceptual Data Model, the personas and use cases, and the Adult Social Care Terminology Data Catalogue. Our thanks to everyone who attended and contributed their feedback.

You can find all the resources relating to the webinars here:

Glossary Working Group

21 February, 14:00-15:00 - book here

Conceptual Data Model Working Group

Your feedback is essential to the continued development and improvement of the Conceptual Data Model so we would like to invite you to attend a working group to share your views and ideas.  If you felt that any areas of the model were unclear or found them difficult to understand, we would like to hear from you so that we can ensure that the next iteration of the model is as clear and accessible as possible.  

If you are interested in being part of this group but did not attend the January webinars, we would recommend watching the recording of the MODS webinar first to familiarise yourself with the model.  (The section on the Conceptual Data Model starts at time code 21:45.)

Some people have experienced difficulty accessing the MODS and DiSC Needs datasets via the Data Catalogue. The DACHA-DOM team have put together this useful guide to accessing and providing feedback on the MODS (.pdf, 764Kb). We encourage you to use this guide and give us your feedback on your experience of accessing the Data Catalogue.

If you aren't able to do this, you can also download the datasets here:

You can save a local copy of the datasets, add your comments and send them to
