October 27, 2008 - Central and North West London (CNWL) National Health Service Foundation Trust (NHS) signed an agreement with Information Builders to deploy a custom-built business intelligence (BI) solution across the organization.


Information Builders WebFOCUS platform will enable the Trust to measure its performance and make process improvements against government and local targets as part of the NHS commitment to providing quality patient care for all.


The system will gather key performance information from disparate sources to allow NHS Foundation Trust managers to make more informed decisions on improving patient care and driving performance. The solution will automatically measure data against all key targets to enable improvements both at an operational and strategic level.


The solution will extend beyond CNWL to gather details from multiple organizations, including Primary Care Trusts and the Department of Health, as well as from patients, to give Trust management a holistic view of its performance. Using WebFOCUS, authorized users, including all CNWL staff, can access, drill down and analyze data relating to their specific area of the Trust and use it to make necessary improvements and drive performance metrics.


"The decision to implement the Information Builders solution is part of our commitment to high-quality care for everyone who uses our services,” said CNWL's John Vaughan, director of partnerships and commercial development. "We have approximately 3,400 members of staff at CNWL and a vast amount of information is held across different systems. This platform will integrate these systems, giving the Trust visibility into specific areas for improvement. Most importantly, CNWL management will no longer spend so much time sifting through vast quantities of data and instead can focus on putting improvement initiatives into action quickly.”
