Integrated Intelligence

We know that it’s about more than just technology when it comes to integrating healthcare systems and information. Our Integrated Intelligence team is helping healthcare organisations implement business and process change, improve efficiencies, and gain greater insights from their data to help decision making to improve patient care.

What is integrated intelligence?

Improving delivery of healthcare requires huge change, in process, technology and culture. That’s where our Integrated Intelligence team comes in. We have a specialist team that focusses on business change, information management, business analytics and integration technology, helping you bring together people, processes and systems to create better, safer care.

How can integrated intelligence help me?

We know that there are different challenges for different healthcare settings, so we work with you to address your particular challenge, and can offer any combination of services to help you meet your goals. Whether it’s improving processes and behaviours when moving from a paper based system to a digital system, analysing data in your clinical system to make better informed decisions, or improving staff communication with consistent information and data sharing, our experienced team has the healthcare experience that is needed to understand your requirement.

Engaging people

Our Integrated Intelligence team understand the challenges of healthcare environments; many are ex-clinicians, hospital managers and healthcare technologists. We work closely alongside your teams to drive change, whether through process improvement or technology changes. We help in the transfer of knowledge so your teams have increased levels of skills and confidence, ensuring you get the most out of your investment and resource.

Transformation

Our benefits-led approach to transforming healthcare helps you to achieve successful, enduring transformation – frequently IT enabled – in your organisation. We work with you to identify your transformation strategy, establish baselines and key performance indicators to measure and track progress and enable optimisation.

Our approach is based on a five stage model:

  • Strategy – helping you set the direction, define the service and solution change, and focus your outputs to outcomes.
  • Planning –  identify current processes and the changes required (technology, process or clinical) to move towards the future state plan, aligned to value-adding outcomes.
  • Configure, build and test – emphasis is towards the technology process of the project, delivering safe, efficient healthcare technology for the benefit of patients.
  • Go Live – consultants assist in the go live by observing working practices, assessing them against best practices agreed in the planning stage to document lessons learned and areas for improvement.
  • Optimise and extend – key performance data and staff feedback is collated to evaluate success of the change programme including benefits realisation. Identify areas to optimise clinical, administrative and operational efficiencies to maximise the benefits of change.

We can work with you at any stage of your change process, giving you the flexibility of utilising your internal teams and having external assistance and guidance at the appropriate time for you. 

Making sure your teams are engaged and motivated about change in technology and processes is vital to the success of a transformation project. Ultimately this means that healthcare organisations are better equipped to provide safer, faster, effective care for patients.
