Northdoor plc has won the Big Data/Analytics Solution of the Year award at the 2023 IT Europa Channel Awards. The ceremony took place on the evening of the 18th May 2023 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London and saw Northdoor plc, scooping the award for its work with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust.
Empowering hospital services and enhancing patient journeys
Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust wanted to modernise its business intelligence (BI) reporting capability to improve time to insight, standardise and automate report generation, allow BI self-service, and improve data security. In addition, there was a requirement to be able to share this new analytics platform with local NHS partner organisations to reduce costs.
The Trust commissioned Northdoor to design and implement a shared Microsoft Power BI P1 Premium environment and to design and develop a range of near-real-time reports and dashboards. These allow the MTW BI team to deliver faster, more accurate insights to support the management of hospital services and to provide assurance around the quality and safety of patient services, ultimately resulting in a better patient experience.
Through a shorter time to insight, clinicians, administrative staff and senior managers can understand changing demand patterns faster, helping them enhance patient services.
“We work with organisations across the private and public sectors and understand data’s crucial role in everyday life. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the NHS. The nature of the data generated by NHS Trusts can make a huge difference to frontline services, so ensuring that it is accurate and timely is really important. Our relationship with Microsoft means that we have implemented and managed its Power BI solutions and know just how effective it can be, and how it could make a huge difference to Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. Working with Microsoft and the client meant that we could quickly prove its effectiveness and potential value to clinicians, admin staff and patients. Winning this award is fantastic as it reflects the great relationships we have with all those we work with.”
Richard Hartill, Public Sector Client Manager at Northdoor plc, commented,
“Winning this award for our work with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust is fantastic. The collaborative nature of the project across our team, MTW’s NHS Trust’s analytics and BI team, and other NHS organisations within the South East are one that other health providers should be considering. By implementing this BI reporting solution, the Trust and other local NHS partners can gain timely and accurate insight that helps enable better patient services and care. Indeed, these teams are committed to delivering improved patient outcomes, and it’s been a pleasure to work alongside them. To win with a project that improves how the NHS provides their services is very satisfying.”
James Jarvis, Assistant Director of Business Intelligence at Maidstone and Tunbridge Well NHS Trust said,
“We are extremely proud of this solution, which helps keep critical systems up and running and delivers vital information to support the management of hospital services and to provide assurance around the quality and safety of patient services”. You can see the full video testimonial here.
