Business Intelligence

Medway Business Intelligence is a healthcare business intelligence and data warehousing module with a flexible, robust and powerful toolset.

It can be used to create, manage and maintain highly-configurable reports and dashboards, manage patient flow, emergency care and inpatients, automate the production of statutory reporting and commissioning data sets, and trap and resolve data quality issues.

Fully integrated with the EPR, Medway BI can replace existing information management systems. Data can be integrated from other systems, cross-linked with Medway, stored, analysed and presented according to local and national requirements.

This Business Intelligence tool is built in the UK to current NHS standards, including Referral to Treatment, Commissioning Data Sets, Contract Allocation, Maternity Services Data Set, Healthcare Resource Groups and the Prescribed Specialised Services Commissioning Tool.

It utilises the full capabilities of the industry-leading Microsoft SQL Server database management system, offering reporting and analysis services.

“Medway BI and Vitalpac together have the capability to make real-time performance on the critical clinical issue of sepsis, visible in all clinical areas. One third of deaths in the hospital in 2014-15 were coded as having a sepsis related diagnosis. Medway BI Data Visualisation will enable continuous assurance that all patients developing sepsis receive optimal care. Speed and consistency are key to surviving sepsis. Not all deaths are avoidable, but we’ve already seen approx. 10% drop in sepsis associated deaths since beginning to deploy Vitalpac. A system that enables us to monitor delivery of the sepsis care bundle real-time, allowing everyone to see if we have small delays, will build on the improvements in mortality already achieved, whilst also reducing the costs of providing outstanding care.”
