South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare invest in Connexica’s business intelligence solution, CXAIR, to transform reporting and data insight within the Trust.
Connexica are pleased to announce a new and exciting development partnership with South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT). The partnership will see the two Staffordshire-based organisations work in partnership to roll out a phased approach to improve and streamline data analysis and reporting within the Trust.
Phase one will see the partnership develop corporate reporting and dashboards for the Trust to help improve the speed of data collection, leading to actionable insight and reporting. Connexica’s solution, CXAIR, allows organisations to easily combine data from a wide range of sources using search engine technology, improving data visibility and empowering staff to generate insightful reports.
SSSFT commented,“The development of the partnership with Connexica will ensure that the Trust has in place a robust infrastructure to meet national, local and internal agendas in respect of all information requirements. Going forward the partnership will also enable any developed models to be enhanced to meet the changing requirements of the Trust and will support the creation of data driven healthcare.”
The Trust selected CXAIR for its flexibility and proven integration with different systems including EPR and PAS solutions. Automated MHSDS submissions from the Trust’s RIO EPR system will be developed to help streamline regulatory reporting and reduce the time spent meeting requirements. The technology underpinning CXAIR enables fast deployment within organisations, meaning the Trust will be live in a matter of weeks, not months.
The development partnership will continue to grow and evolve as CXAIR is deployed throughout the Trust, usable by a variety of end users in areas such as finance, HR and operational departments. The analytics platform will provide a holistic view of the Trust to facilitate continuous performance monitoring and staff will be provided with comprehensive training, enabling all users to quickly create detailed reports.
Kevin Strachan, Connexica’s Operations Director, said: “The development partnership is an exciting time for both South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare and for Connexica. We are looking forward to working closely with SSSFT in the coming weeks and months to help them create a ‘data lake’ which will form the foundation of the self-service reporting and analytics that will be made available throughout the Trust.”
