There are two types of additional data fields that are available to use on the ROOT. These exist to allow you to collect extra data items not included in the standard, 'core' ROOT dataset, should you wish to do so.
The benefit of using additional fields is that it can provide your organisation/service with a more detailed, richer dataset. If you opt to use these, however, it is important to be mindful of the additional burden on colleagues collecting the data.
The optional fields that are currently available on the ROOT are provided in the table, below. These are fields that organisations/services can choose whether or not to collect. This list will develop over time in response to feedback from SLT services and in response to the changing environment.
(formerly 'care pathway')
Method of service delivery
To record whether interventions were delivered:
To record the total time taken to complete the episode of care.
To record the total number of contacts for intervention during the completed episode of care.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish to activate any of these fields for your organisation/service.
Some services also choose to set up their own local fields that are useful for their own reports and analysis e.g. team name or SLT name. ROOT users with admin rights can create these, and there is a video that shows you how to do this in the training module for admin users. If you need any help, or have questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com
