Clinical dashboard helps Wigan trust to monitor performance

Bridgewater Community Healthcare deploys QlikView solution to boost innovation and compliancy

Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust is to deploy QlikView dashboards to monitor performance against its strategic objectives and core performance frameworks covering quality, HR, finance and clinical effectiveness.

By opening up information access and, in effect devolving decision-making, we’re far more likely to achieve the level of clinical engagement we need to encourage innovation and embrace new ideas to deliver improvements in patient care

The business discovery platform will be implemented with the support of IT specialist, CACI, and will be accessed by 200 users including the executive board and heads of frontline service delivery.

Commenting on the project, Carl Powner, programme lead at the trust, said: “The power of QlikView is that we can provide anyone with access to information about key performance indicators that relate to their role and their clinical service line. By opening up information access and, in effect devolving decision-making, we’re far more likely to achieve the level of clinical engagement we need to encourage innovation and embrace new ideas to deliver improvements in patient care.”

Graham James, vice president and director of CACI’s business intelligence division, added: “We work extensively with the public sector and understand that it is absolutely crucial for healthcare managers to be able to effectively monitor performance. QlikView offers a highly-visual and easy-to-use reporting and analysis environment that provides the trust with the up-to-date performance information they need to drive service improvement plans.”
