The NHSBSA’s data analytics investment is helping the organization to achieve its 5 year strategic goals, which include helping to save GBP1 billion (US$1.56 billion) for NHS patients, reducing unit costs by 50%, improving service and delivering great results for customers, and deriving insight from data to drive change.
“With our newly established Data Lab in place, we can add even more value to the NHS. I cannot begin to describe how significant that has been. This project is really helping us to achieve our strategic goals. In addition, we are working in a different way now and it has even helped with how people interact and function in the workplace.
“We’ve had a very positive response, and our chief executive is extremely impressed with our achievements and the results we have shown so far. As a result, management is recommending that our suppliers and partners come to see what we are doing to learn from our experiences,” Monckton said.
Over the next six months, the DALL team has a large number of analytics projects in the pipeline and is looking to help other areas of the business to better leverage their data. The organization will focus on how it can use Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition with business users. In addition, the NHSBSA is investigating how it might share data and its analytical ability with other government organizations to drive further value from its investment.
