The PAT CAT Network allows information to be shared through the use of “Channels”. A channel defines a set of filters and graphs for which an organisation is willing to share data with another. An organisation “subscribes” to a channel to participate. Only aggregated data is shared. The data becomes available by “connecting’ to a channel and then viewing the data through the normal PAT CAT interface along with the organisations own data for comparison. When connected to a channel, the predefined filters replace the usual PAT CAT filter panel and the graphs for which shared data is available are flagged with a * on their tab. A filter is selected to recalculate the data.


Only Super Users can create and share Channels - please contact PEN CS to nominate the super users in your organisation.

To enable data sharing without PEN CS becoming a data custodian we have expanded the PCS Network to handle the PAT CAT Network data travel. The PCS Network is currently used to provide the prompts data travel from PHN/organisation to practice. It does not store any data from the individual organisations using PAT CAT, but rather stores the details of the direct data connections, i.e. who sends what to who.
