TUH CASE STUDY
Enabling Tallaght University Hospital with Hospital Analytics
Tallaght University Hospital (TUH) have a long term vision to implement a Care Command Centre that will provide insight and information, enabling hospital administrators to better manage patient safety, experience and quality of care. Limitations in the hospital’s ability to access complete, accurate and timely information and in the capability of available tools to analyse that information were hampering the development of this vision.
Client Solutions has significant experience in developing analytic data platforms for similarly sized organisations and partnered with TUH to develop the ‘Hospital Analytics’ solution. This brings together clinical and operational data across a range of areas – including Emergency Care, Scheduled Care, Waiting Lists, Bed Management, and Theatre Utilisation – in a simple-to-use application built on a proven data model accessible on PC, laptop, tablet and mobile.
TUH’s executive team have been empowered to determine the status of their patients, the effectiveness of their programs and the efficiency of their processes. They can analyse complex disparate data via comprehensive dashboards and drill down to review the specific details needed to identify issues and opportunities and make critical decisions quickly. Isolated ‘data silos’ have been integrated and data quality issues resolved, with TUH maintaining full ownership and governance of their data. Hospital Analytics provides a future proof data platform for the hospital and TUH have now started the journey to developing a state-of-the-art Care Command Centre.
TUH will use the data that is now collated in one central location to drive better patient experiences and outcomes. It will enable staff across different disciplines to quickly access and analyse their own metrics. This will give them greater autonomy and assist with planning future service developments to better cope with increased patient activity. It’s a big step in bringing us closer to the development of a Care Command Centre.
