The Christie aims to provide the highest quality of care efficiently and effectively. This means actively improving quality whilst carefully managing its resources. Like healthcare organisations across the UK, providing better care with limited resources requires a systematic and robust approach. In order to continually provide the highest quality of care, The Christie needs to be able to manage its resources in a systematic manner. As such, it is committed to the use of Statistical Process Control (SPC) to deliver clinical process improvement against set baselines, and to thoroughly measure improvements.
The Christie has used Tableau Software, for 18 months, as its Business Intelligence Solution, providing it with fast and effective data analytics. In order to further enhance its data analytics capabilities, The Christie wanted to be able to create SPC charts in Tableau that would enable the Trust’s staff to monitor change impact and iterative improvement projects on a daily basis.
Working alongside The Christie, Trustmarque developed Scutari as a companion tool for Tableau to provide staff with a simple and mathematically robust view of the metrics that impact the quality and efficiency of patient care. The Christie can now rapidly generate colour-coded SPC charts in a matter of minutes, rather than the hours it took previously to create them manually.
