Seven NHS trusts in London have adopted modules from the Analytical Command Centre at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT). The command centre is a series of screens based at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary site which shows live information about a patient before they enter the Trust’s hospitals, during their stay and when they are discharged home.

 

The London trusts have adopted two modules from the command centre:

  • ambulance messaging which alerts staff to how many ambulances are predicted, details of patient type and visibility of incoming COVID-19 risks
  • bed management messaging which gives staff access to the bed status across each ward on every site on any device and flags where patients have COVID-19.

 

The Trust developed the command centre with QlickiT, a Catalyst Company, so it would fit with any NHS patient systems.

 

Rob O’Neill, Head of Information, UHMBT, said: “This safe and effective model is testament to the hard work of my team and our partners QlickiT. We’re delighted that other trusts in the country have adopted the command centre model to help them with the flow of patients in and out of their organisations during COVID-19 and beyond.”

 

Mike Cawthorn, Director and Business Solution Lead at Catalyst BI, said: “We are proud to be supporting our NHS Trusts with the rapid deployment of command centre in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Rob and his team have developed a world-class product at UHMBT and QlickiT worked with the team to add a configuration capability, which allows the command centre to be deployed within days to any NHS organisation in the UK and further afield. This combination allows the London trusts to deploy the modules developed by UHMBT within hours.”

 

The command centre is part of a different set of activities that have been implemented in the emergency setting at UHMBT to help staff to improve patient management, care and experience.

Other benefits of the command centre include:

  • Showing which patients are due for discharge and themes of why there may be delays
  • Highlighting the performance in the Emergency Departments (ED) which allows staff to see the number of walk-ins and if there has been a surge in patients
  • Showing the number of admissions to hospital through outpatient appointments and departments such as the Ambulatory Care Unit.

 

The Trust holds patient flow meetings every two hours in the command centre which helps teams to better analyse the emergency care setting and patient flow in and out of the hospital.

The command centre has been designed to work in a similar way to airport Air Traffic Control and displays live and predictive information about patients throughout their hospital stay, from incoming patients travelling via ambulance to patients waiting for discharge home.

The command centre was awarded the ‘Delivering for Front Line Staff’ award at the Health Tech Newspaper awards earlier this year.

Qlik Data Market will be retired

Qlik recognises that organisations need to provide their data consumers with easy access to trusted, external data in addition to internal information. This drove our decision in 2014 to acquire the company called DataMarket. Qlik DataMarket enabled Qlik customers to easily combine their own data with aggregated, curated and trusted external information on topics such as business demographics, currencies, population, economic indicators, or weather.

In the past few years, as customers have become more sophisticated and knowledgeable in their use of data, we have found that their external data requirements have evolved to become either very simple or very specific. Many customers are now able to source simple external data needs by themselves. And a customer’s specific data requirements can vary widely according to their exact market, industry, geography, or a combination of these factors. 

We have determined that it would be a significant investment to ensure Qlik DataMarket remains a competitive option. Based on Qlik’s overall priorities, we have decided to retire the Qlik DataMarket service. This retirement not only affects licensed Qlik DataMarket customers but also all Qlik Sense customers that have Professional/Analyzer licenses as those users are entitled to use the Qlik Data Market Essentials package.   

The Qlik DataMarket product along with access to all data packages will be retired on June 30, 2021.  Product support will also end on this date. However, effective immediately:

There will be no new sales of Qlik DataMarket. All new Qlik Sense Enterprise subscriptions will no longer include the Qlik DataMarket Essentials package license. For Qlik Sense Enterprise renewals:  The Qlik DataMarket Essentials package will no longer be part of the license as of the subscription/maintenance renewal date or July 1, 2021, whichever date is sooner.

Furthermore, customers who want to continue using Qlik DataMarket until the End-of-Life date will need to stop upgrading their installation of Qlik Sense around the end of 2020.  As of the November 2020 release of Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows and the January 2021 release of the cloud editions of Qlik Sense, the product will no longer access Qlik DataMarket.

Qlik acquires CrunchBot and Crunch Data

Natural language AI bot CrunchBot has been acquired by Qlik. The bot enables users to ask questions of their data in a conversational manner in Qlik Sense or on popular communication platforms like Skype. Alongside that product, Qlik have also acquired the AI experts at Crunch Data. It is fantastic that Qlik continue to invest in powerful new technologies, enhancing the ability of employees to (in this case, quite literally) converse with data. Their continued focus on the power of AI and data literacy is exciting, keeping Qlik on the bleeding edge of visual analytics. You can find the media take on the acquisition here.

What does it mean for me?

CrunchBot is available today as a value-added solution to Qlik Sense. Read more about that here. Like previous acquisitions, CrunchBot will be incorporated into the core Qlik Sense product, in this case enhancing the existing insight advisor functionality. Previous acquisition, Podium Data, has undergone a similar process and is available as Qlik Data Catalyst, which accelerates the delivery of trustworthy, actionable data.

Proud sponsors of this fantastic event, themed around leading with data.

We were lucky enough to attend the London round of the 2018 Qlik Data Revolution Tour. The future direction of the Qlik platform is certainly exciting! There is huge focus on how Qlik enables us all to capitalise on the market shifts and opportunities that digital transformation has brought about.

The biggest question is ultimately – how can your data help you to deliver a better experience for the people who use your services?

Whether it is a customer, patient or citizen, we all want to do more to enhance their experiences but, unless you are extremely lucky, you are not going to have an unlimited budget to do that. You need other ways to innovate and exceed the expectations of those people.

Maximising the value of the data in your organisation is the best way to identify where those opportunities lie and how to smartly implement them. It is an exciting time to be a Qlik partner, when the Qlik solution is so uniquely positioned to fully close the gap between how you currently use your data and how you COULD use it to drive customer value across your organisation.
