VUIT for Commissioners (ICS) and Place Based Teams (ICP) full detail
The current situation
As integrated care systems Become more established and begin to define their strategic intent the expectation on Executives and senior managers within the ICS to identify opportunities for service improvement and cost reduction opportunities is growing quickly. To achieve this the need for accessible consistent population and provider data is growing at pace. At the same time the forming of place based teams & partnerships, along with system wide provider collaborations, will require an entirely different approach to managing unwarranted variation and identifying cause and effect or cost in one part of a system versus benefit in another If the benefits of a systemwide approach ought to be realised. The need to be able to deliver the right local solution in the context of system thinking and management is now critical and this will require new data and informatics to be available.
Issues between providers around data governance, GDPR, shared care records and variation in the way that providers measure the same things mean that good information from providers and the wider Partnership which can be used for decision making can be hard to come by. Typically, analytical and informatics teams are still delivering all of their historic roles and are, typically, carrying vacancies which means they are under pressure. Equally they are finding it challenging to interpret the expectations of executives and senior managers tasked with mobilising transformation and improvement activity at place and system level. Currently the way in which national data sets are published does not address or contribute to the solution as the historic way in which the data is published (Siloed, no visualisations, no trend data, large un-manipulatable files etc) meaning that there is currently an informatics and insights void.
The solutions VUIT can offer
The VUIT platform draws on a raft of national data not only from healthcare but from other sources.
By combining this information and transforming it from a vast array of disparate siloed data sets into interactive visualisations which allow users to interrogate and understand population data from the highest System level to provider level and in certain circumstances units of activity and cost.
By using data which is provided under license from the Government we are able to deliver unprecedented levels of insight without concerns over GDPR or patient confidentiality. Equally our ability to combine disparate data from multiple sources means that view it offers a completely unique view of your ICS or Place populations and the unwarranted variation in the way that they are served.
