Turning region-wide data into insights and actions
November 25, 2020
TORONTO – How can health information from providers across a whole system or region be transformed into intelligence and insights? A new platform for sharing and quickly analyzing health data is being introduced into Canada from the United Kingdom, where it is used in 30 percent of National Health Service England (NHS) organizations. The solution is improving patient flow and the quality of care and has been particularly effective in supporting their response to COVID.
Join this webinar to learn how the new platform, called SHREWD, can enhance coordination and delivery of healthcare services across a health system, health region and integrated health network for Canadian providers. The platform enables you to transform the data into insights and actions for improved performance.
December 11th – 1:00PM – 2:00PM (ET) / 10:00AM – 11:00AM (PT)
SHREWD is a powerful, real-time, business intelligence platform that provides simple visibility of data across entire healthcare systems. It empowers health and social service providers to make the most of their data, enabling the provision of safer, more effective care, improved patient flow, better care coordination and more efficient utilization of resources.
What You Will Take Away
- How SHREWD provides care teams with operational visibility of early warning signs to help identify bottlenecks and surges of patient visits across a region.
- How SHREWD can prepare for and manage a sudden increase in demand across any part of the system/region, comparable to those seen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- How to improve patient flow management by implementing the SHREWD portfolio, with shared experiences from three NHS operational directors.
- How adaptable the SHREWD portfolio is to meet the needs of Canadian organizations. Whether it be operational use in acute settings or wider system level, SHREWD is able to support many aspects of patient flow management.
