Integrated real time information
An IT tool to support local management decision making…..
Wednesday 6 June: Beardmore Hotel
Graham Gault ( eHealth Lead -NHS Dumfries & Galloway)
Workshop aim……
“To establish what appetite managers have for deploying management
Information/business intelligence solutions to gather real time/near real time
information and what the priorities are for improvement”
 Drivers for change in approach to BI
 Our Approach - Our Journey of change
 Chosen tools, and why
 DEMONSTRATION of Health / Social Care real time data access
Strategy - Christie Report (Gov’t response)
The Scottish Government is committed to the introduction of an integrated system of
health and social care to ensure that older people continue to receive the care,
compassion, support and dignity they need and deserve.
Strong evidence suggests that better outcomes for people, better use of resources (money,
people’s time) and better experience of care and support can all flow from services that are
planned and delivered in an effectively integrated way.
Over the next 20 years demography alone could increase expenditure on health and social
care by 70 per cent. Reform is necessary to help address this unprecedented challenge.
Strategy - Christie Report (Gov’t response)
a decisive shift towards prevention;
 greater integration of public services at a local level driven by
better partnership,
 collaboration and effective local delivery;
 greater investment in the people who deliver services through
enhanced workforce and development and effective leadership; and
 a sharp focus on improving performance, through greater
transparency, innovation and use of digital technology.
Where we were……
 New Quality Strategy for Health ( and requirement for efficiency)
 Lots of data in silo systems
 A basis of retrospective reporting, not current…..
 An increasing need to benchmark amongst Peers……(efficiency)
 Lots of routine reporting……..How useful ?
 Lots of different tools to deliver information to operational staff
 Small Information team (with no budget to expand to meet demand)
 Low level of ability in users to self service
Too many questions being asked with little ability to respond with succinct
useful timely information
Quality Healthcare Enabled by eHealth
Safe & Effective
Safer faster diagnosis
Better understanding of
history & health status
Reduce complications due
to drug interactions
Data for audit,
improvement & population
based studies
Support protocols &
evidence based pathways
of care
Effective patient
Improved data quality &
automatic validation
Equitable & Patient
Timely & Efficient
Improved communications
& sharing of information
between patients,
clinicians and carers across
health and other partner
Reduced duplication of
data entry
Reduce unnecessary
repeat investigations
More efficient collection &
analysis of secondary use
Real time information to
support operational
Less need for patients to
repeat information
More clinical time with
patients rather than
searching for information
Patients will be supported
in accessing, verifying &
amending their health
Patients and carers will
have improved access to
information about their
condition encouraging
greater involvement in
their own health

 Plan GO live…….
KPI Awareness…..idashboards
• Constant Feedback loop
• RAG Targets set throughout
• Live system feeds
