The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust in the UK has selected Intuitive Business Intelligence’s advanced business intelligence (BI) dashboard solution.
Currently being used to deploy information on ward statistics, the Intuitive Dashboards will enable the NHS Trust to monitor key performance targets at ward level.
The dashboard solution will also help the NHS Trust to provide staff with improved visibility of their performance at every stage of the patient pathway.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust performance and informatics deputy director Michael Brown said the hospital has recently been independently recognised as one of the top 40 hospitals in the UK.
"Therefore, performance management is at the heart of everything we do," Brown added.
"We needed an effective way to view and analyse the key factors driving our performance against operational and Government-based targets.
"Intuitive Dashboards gives us a vastly superior approach to reporting, so we can quickly highlight issues before they have a negative impact."
The solution will help the Trust to gain real-time, graphical access to operational data and share the information quickly.
The software, which delivers real-time web-based reporting, is also expected to improve performance and help identify operational aspects of the Trust that require attention.
Intuitive Business Intelligence director Roger Stocker said that access to and visualisation of data is vital to being able to manage the complex activities of a modern healthcare provider.
"Intuitive Dashboards delivers advanced capabilities to empower business users with real-time access to their most critical information which typically resides in numerous disparate systems," Stocker added.
The Intuitive Business Intelligence team is now working on dashboards relating to contract monitoring, waiting lists and outpatients.
