Drug & Alcohol Information System
The Drug and Alcohol Information System (DAISy) is a database being developed to collect Scottish Drug and Alcohol Treatment, Outcomes and Waiting Times data from staff delivering specialist drug and alcohol interventions.
DAISy is now in the IT development stage and a number of high level key milestones have been identified for the next phase of implementation.
These milestones are below:
|IT development 1st Nov 2016||1st Nov 2016 - 27th Oct 2017|
|Training on system||30th Oct 2017 - 30th Mar 2018|
|Pilot implementation||8th Jan 2018 - 30th Mar 2018|
|Go live - National||2nd April 2018|
When fully implemented DAISy will:
- support local and national decision making;
- inform national policy and practice development;
- offer the potential to join person-level data with other datasets;
- provide timely information to support local service delivery, improvement and planning.
The current Scottish Drug Misuse Database (SDMD) and Drug and Alcohol Treatment Waiting Times systems will remain operational until the development and implementation of the new system is fully complete. Ongoing work to improve compliance and quality will also continue during this time.
If you would like to participate in the development of DAISy via our various subgroups, or for further information, please contact the project team, nss.DAISy@nhs.net.
