Insource Health BI Clients ‘on the record’.
Below is some of the material our clients have approved to be in the public domain.
Please feel free to download, save or print the case studies for your reference.
At the start of our BI project we recognised that our existing information systems did not meet the increasing business needs of the Trust. We had a number of fragmented systems acquired to meet ad-hoc department needs and sought to move to a more integrated environment, whilst protecting our investment.
We wanted to enhance our current business intelligence capability as the demand for meaningful and accessible information increases. This included the visualisation of reporting content, accessibility to that content, and the timely provision and distribution of relevant business information to all levels of the organisation. It was important to us that we benefited from Business Intelligence expertise through a partner and that, over time, we took on skills to expand the system ourselves to meet further demand.

The Trust needed to provide a strategic long-term information strategy solution to address their business issues and improve efficiency, productivity and their ability to control costs.
As a result of implementing the Insource Health BI solution:
- Managers at Colchester will spend less time looking for information
- Clinicians are able to create their own patient reports
- Managers and Clinicians use that information to help them transform their services
A task that used to take a month to complete now happens automatically each day, and is now providing accurate information in time for it to affect performance across the business. A key factor in the success of the solution was the ability provided by Data Academy to capture the multitude of reporting rules which used to reside within the reports themselves and hold them centrally in the Data Warehouse so that they proliferate to all the reports automatically. The business now has one version of the truth across all reports.Read Download
