Congratulations to Rob O’Neill, Matt Heys and Kelly Heys for winning the ‘Delivering for Front Line Staff’ award at this year’s HTN People and Partnership Awards for University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT). The award was for the powerful tool, Command Centre, that has enabled flow coordinators to save time and make more effective decisions on a minute by minute basis.

 Command Centre is a collaboration between University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust and QlickiT, and powered by leading analytics platform, Qlik Sense, that has boosted triage and discharge times. It consists of 5 live-view wall-mounted touchscreens, fed live with Ambulance, ED in, ED out, Live Bed State and IP out data; all interactive and drillable patient level. It enables rapid analysis for flow coordinators making on-the-ground decisions throughout the day.

 Whilst the award was for the positive impact on frontline staff, the solution has undoubtedly had a big effect on patient experience too. 95% of patients are now triaged within 15 minutes of arrival at ED (up from 67%) and the percentage of patients being cared for on non-medical wards, due to capacity pressures, has been reduced from 8% to 2%. Additionally, the proportion of patients discharged by midday has grown from 16% to 19%.

 So, what is next? Well, we are excited to be partnering with Rob and the team to bring Command Centre to the rest of the NHS, already putting it in place at other sites. As an affordable, rapidly implementable (just two days at the latest new site), there is no reason why patients all across the NHS should not be benefitting from enhanced patient flow pathways. Already working in collaboration with other NHS organisations, we have been adding new features to Command Centre, including full predictive modelling capabilities, looking beyond even a complete live view!

 Having specialised in delivering outstanding Qlik solutions since 2005, we work closely with over 60 public sector customers. Recently acquired by Catalyst IT, we are the largest Qlik Provider in the UK, well positioned to ensure the NHS gets the full benefits that Command Centre delivers to service capacity. If you feel your organisation could benefit from a live, predictive view of your entire ED flow, don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information and a demonstration.

 Congratulations again to UHMBT for this fantastic recognition, richly deserved by Rob and the team!

Catalyst IT acquires fellow Qlik Elite Partner QlickiT

Catalyst IT (Catalyst) has today announced the acquisition of QlickiT, in a deal that takes its annual turnover to £6m.

QlickiT is Qlik’s longest established UK partner and supports Public Sector organisations to include the NHS, Central and Local Government. Private Sector clients include Manufacturers and Wholesale Distributors, Services and Legal businesses.

Catalyst is an award-winning IT solutions business delivering Business Intelligence (BI) and Oracle NetSuite Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions. Customers include GKN Aerospace plc, Morrisons Supermarkets plc, Travis Perkins plc, Orange and Wickes.

Both Catalyst and QlickIT are Qlik Elite Partner’s in their own right, the highest possible Partner status achievable. Qlik has been at the top of the Gartner BI Magic Quadrant for 9 years with its unique approach to Reporting, Analysis, Data Mining and Data Interpretation.

Commenting on the news, John Elliott, Owner at QlickiT said, “We are pleased to hand over the reins of QlickiT to the Catalyst Team. The businesses have known each other for several years and developed a great working relationship. After 40 years in the IT industry, I am looking forward to my retirement and leaving QlickiT in a very safe pair of hands.”

Mark Godliman, Managing Director at Catalyst also said, “The acquisition allows Catalyst to enhance its existing portfolio and enables us to operate across 10 market sectors. QlickiT has superb staff, customers and an excellent reputation in the marketplace. The two businesses are identical in terms of structure, go-to-market messaging and have complimentary skills and expertise. It will be very much business as usual with location and contact details remaining unchanged. This is a fantastic first acquisition for Catalyst and kick starts our 3-year period of acquisitive growth.”

Mike Cawthorn, Director and Business Solution Lead at Catalyst commented, “Catalyst is at the forefront of innovating Qlik solutions, primarily into the Private sector. However, we have also delivered ground-breaking Public sector engagements such as Project Axis into The London Borough of Hillingdon and Avon and Somerset Police, which is having a really positive impact on youth offending rates in these areas. By bringing these two businesses together, we unlock the potential to look at the capabilities of the Qlik platform and how predictive and artificial intelligence can be used across our customer base.”

Reload Log File Dates and Times - Qlikview November 2018 onwards.

Please see the following notice from Qlik re the stamping and naming of log files with Dates and Times.

https://support.qlik.com/articles/000060298

The effect of this many of you will not notice until you start looking at your logs and start thinking that your jobs have started an hour earlier. Please be aware that this is an intended behaviour from Qlik. They have stopped recording the times based on the server time, which will take into account Summer Time changes and now only record the actual UTC time (Co-ordinated Universal time) which is GMT regardless of summer time. In winter we will have the correct time and in summer it will be one hour behind the actual time in the UK. Anyone outside of UTC+00:00 will be completely different.

Qlik Sense has always used UTC time for the time in the log files and therefore there is no change but you may have wondered why it was always an hour out in summer, this is why.

Note this does not affect the actual time that it runs just the time shown in the log. A job scheduled to run at 2pm will run at 2pm (14:00) but the log file will show 1pm (13:00) in summer 2pm(14:00) in winter.
