News: Strata IQ™ – Real Time Patient Flow Dashboard Launched
Strata Health today announced a proprietary analytics Dashboard – Strata IQ™ – which interprets in real time, complex transactional data generated by its Strata PathWays™ suite of patient flow solutions.
One of the key benefits Strata Health provides to its clinical users is timely, accurate and meaningful data about the flow of patients and the Community programs they are utilizing.
“As Strata PathWays™ accessed previously static patient waitlists, we discovered early on that very unique data was captured. The challenge has been to effectively interpret this complex data and put it quickly in the hands of key health decision makers – both at the front line and in the executive offices,” commented Don Schick, Strata Health founder and CEO. “Frankly, I’ve not been inspired by the reporting strategies within our category to date so Strata Health made this an investment priority over the last year.”
The most recent version of Strata PathWays™ has introduced at-a-glance dashboards providing up to the minute decision support for front-line clinicians.
Additionally, where clients focus on leveraging enterprise analytics, Strata PathWays™ now delivers data streaming for utilization within this reporting matrix.
However, surveys suggested clients face delays in accessing their enterprise analytics, yet have an accelerating need to quickly interpret patient flow trends as managing Acute ALC, ED Access, Programming Gaps and Balanced Scorecard KPI’s become critical within today’s stressed health systems. The answer is Strata IQ™ – a drillable dashboard engineered by Strata Health to present patient flow metrics from broad trends down to the specific transactions making up those trends – in real time.
With clinical support from the Fraser Health Authority in Surrey, BC, Canada and the UK’s Outer North East London Community Trust, Strata IQ™ was developed to fill that need for useable information. Simply – Accurately – Quickly – and Cost Effectively.
John Cowman, Director- Performance for ONEL (UK NHS) comments, “Strata IQ is now how we report and trend our KPI’s especially around acute avoidance and eReferral efficiency. I don’t go a day without referencing our IQ dashboards.”
“We’ve learned over 9 years just how complex patient flow data can be to analyze and drive to action, “ concluded Schick. “Strata IQ™ is the outcome of matching our client’s years of category experience with state of the art informatics technology. The result? Easily interpreted graphics that highlight trends at a glance, and identify specifics with a click supporting immediate strategic and operational decisions.”
Strata IQ™ is now available across all Strata PathWays™ installations.
