Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit Sees The Value Of Data With Tableau

Harnessing the latest technologies to provide customers with a secure web-based platform to review, share and interpret reliable and timely data sources, the Tableau integration makes it even easier for people to explore and probe their data. For example, CCGs can now compare data across the region enabling benchmarking of peers.

"We have a strong track record for innovation, and have harnessed the latest technologies on the GEMIMA platform to provide customers with a secure, accessible tool to review, share and interpret reliable and timely data sources. Through the Tableau integration we are making it quicker and easier for people to explore data, and ultimately unlock greater value for the NHS," explained Dave Marsden, Director for Information and IT Services, Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit.

The phased implementation is being rolled out over several months, with the first application providing a visualisation and presentation layer for GEMIMA's Significant Contract Management Module from June.

"Empowering our analysts with data visualisation technology will make a tangible difference to their work, and in the future we are looking at extending the capability to our customers. The software is so intuitive that it provides the option for people to self-serve and probe their own data. This not just delivers significant time savings, but may well provide new insights that can benefit other CCGs," added Marsden.

"Data is only really useful if you can extract meaning and insight from it. GEM is making it simple and fast for CGGs to make-informed decisions because they can see and understand the data with Tableau. It also helps provide a clear picture of what best practice looks like in terms of performance, value and patient care which can then be replicated elsewhere – both within the GEM area and other CSUs across England," commented James Eiloart, VP, EMEA, Tableau Software.
