Power BI Enablement in the NHS

Many NHS organisations need to improve the speed, quality, volume and resource efficiency of their reporting which can be achieved by taking advantage of available technology. So, when implementing Power BI there is much to consider:

  • Set up challenges including virtual infrastructure and dashboards
  • Disparate and unconnected databases and data sources
  • Security and accessibility to data
  • Skills gaps within the developer, informatic and analyst’s teams
  • Licencing approaches

Why Trustmarque for Power BI?

We have over 10 years of NHS Data Analytics experience and we understand the processes that the data represents and the pressures that users face. We know what is important. We understand the processes that are needed to collect and collate NHS Data. We recognise the issues relating to storage, quality and security.

In this time, we have never found a data set that is not informative and can give great insight. It doesn’t always deliver the answers we were looking for, but typically the results are very useful and often surprising. We like to think that we can have an informed conversation with your data and discover what it really can tell you.

We bring dashboard templates for A&E, inpatients, outpatients, portering, community nursing, cancer, waiting times, HR processes and many other specific areas for the NHS. This means you can start with a working model closer to your final goal and working with people who really understand it.
