One of the primary benefits of Ardens Manager as a practice, PCN, Federation or CCG is the ability to benchmark and aggregate activity. To do this, please complete our group setup request form and a member of the team will be in touch to confirm that your group has been set up.


Once the group has been set up, all organisations will be sent a task on Ardens Manager to accept the invitation to join the group. This invitation will contain information about the lead organisation, other member organisations, reporting access levels and also our bespoke Ardens Manager datasharing agreement text. 


When setting up a group on Ardens Manager different access levels can be selected for both the lead of the group and/or the individual members of the organisation.


The different access levels are: 

  • Can view entire data set
  • Can view restricted data set
  • Can view aggregated data



Can view entire data set


Users can see the entire dataset of every organisation within the group.

When benchmarking is turned on, they are able to click on the bars next to each individual organisation name to view their entire data set. The organisation can also click on the bars next to individual report names to benchmark that selected report.

Can view restricted data set


Organisations can only view the entire dataset of their own organisation and cannot see other member organisations entire dataset.

However, when benchmarking is turned on they can click on the bars next to the individual reports to compare their own performance against other organisations for the selected report.

Can view aggregated data only


Organisations can only view the aggregated data for the entire group and cannot view any organisational level data.


Groups can also be setup so that organisations can view aggregations of any connected groups within the group. For example, a CCG can view its connected PCN’s aggregate group data.
