Our Group Digital Strategy

← Back to Themes

Providing insight to support decision-making


Our ambition for this theme

We want to revolutionise the way decisions are taken in our Group and across our health system. We will start with being clear about what data is relevant for making decisions and build a consistent structure that supports this.

We will adapt and provide increased insight and analysis, getting to the point where our teams are anticipating the questions colleagues may ask.

We need to make it easy for all staff to have information at their fingertips and for it to be easier for clinicians involved in research being able to analyse data for better care and prevention.


Our priorities

  1. We will understand what data is needed to support patient care so that when we are creating data, it provides value.
  2. We will develop dashboards that are intuitive and staff can use to revolutionise decision-making.
  3. We will improve the consistency and data quality across the sites, including standardising the way we report our data.
