Linking Registration Services to other local government services
Worcestershire Office of Data Analytics (WODA) is submitting this bid on behalf of all Worcestershire’s public sector partners who are committed to working together.
In England, there were c.880k births, deaths and marriages in 2017. Registration Services therefore collect large amounts of personal data. With the additional data sharing opportunities presented by the Digital Economy Act 2017, the discovery phase will explore the benefits of securely sharing Registration Services data to support other local government activities such as planning provision of local services, removing barriers by verification services, safeguarding children, fraud, and improving statistics for planning and policy decisions.
Discovery will test, with users, potential use cases for Registration Services data sharing and identify opportunities for sharing this data between public sector partners. Accessing and sharing data could be achieved by creating common data models and standards, as well as API’s to enable connection between agencies and associated services. This would enable the design of uniform data standards to create a structure that all local authorities can adopt and build upon. This would potentially provide significant cost savings and efficiency benefits nationally, based on volumes of births, marriages and deaths in England.
