Using technology to reduce the burden of reporting
What is the challenge your project is going to address and how does it connect to the theme?
A recent report mapping exercise carried out by the Clinical Governance Support Unit found that over 40 reports were produced across the Unit, most on a quarterly basis. Although processes and standard operating procedures are in place to increase efficiency and replicability of our regular reports, there is still a manual element that represents a significant proportion of the workload. Other public sector organisations have explored and adopted digital solutions, for example XX organisation which found that….any stats/ data re increases in efficiency etc?
Introducing Reproducible Analytical Pipelines to NHSGGC is a relatively novel idea, which if implemented at a strategic level would increase automation of data production, ensure replicability to make data over time robust, integrate quality assurance processes and ultimately increase capacity to use reporting for real improvement. Real time data?? ?Not necessarily
What does your project aim to achieve?
The novel nature of this idea for NHSGGC means that the objectives for this project will be centred around testing applicability and ensuring an infrastructure that has a robust foundation for such a transformational change. Specifically, the project will aim to deliver:
– A feasibility study of the options for RAPs, version control software, and secure platform for data/ dashboard deployment
– Access to the recommended software to allow a robust test of applicability to NHSGGC data reporting production.
How will the project be delivered?
The project will be overseen by the Clinical Informatics Steering Group which is a collaborative group of clinical leaders, e-health experts and clinical governance representatives. This will ensure that the project is driven from a strategic level, increasing the opportunity for this to be implemented on a wider scale.
At an operational level, the project will be led by the Clinical Governance Support Unit Data Team, all of whom have significant experience in analysing data, producing reports, and creating data visualisations.
