Transforming reporting and analysis at the NHS with QlikView
In the UK, QlikView is used by more than 162 NHS Trusts to analyse and report on data from multiple critical systems. It empowers non-technical users to get the answers they need to be more productive, more efficient and more effective, and promotes total visibility across all functions and departments, saving time and money in all areas.
QlikView substantially aids clinicians and managers with their day-to-day tasks by providing reliable, up-to-date information on a range of metrics. Drawing information from disparate sources and presenting it on-screen for real-time analysis, QlikView applications allow users to drill down to individual patient level for a clear and detailed view of performance. The multi-layered security model allows access to be restricted by rank, role or department, maintaining absolute patient data confidentiality while ensuring that everyone has access to the information that supports their function.
The result?.. Patterns and trends can be seen at a glance. Problems can be flagged early. QlikView compels users to take action by arming them with the facts. Trusts like Cambridge University Hospitals, Newham University Hospital and Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital are all benefiting from improved clinical reporting and dashboards thanks to QlikView.

QlikView builds executive dashboards from transaction level data so users can go from high level costs to individual line item detail in seconds. This ability to truly understand what makes up the high level numbers enables the right decisions to be made more quickly and with more certainty than ever before.
