Online Indicators

Feedback and review mechanism that enables you to identify trends in performance and quickly find patients who have not achieved specific acute care processes
  • Provides minute-by-minute feedback on key indicators of care quality
  • Boxes are colour-coded for every patient to show  whether an indicator has been achieved - QI concerns are instantly flagged
  • Drill down to see more information about each KI

Use the online indicators tool to:

  • Track patient care and QI concerns in real-time
  • Encourage regular review of patient data and prospective 'real-time' data entry
  • Support data validation






 
Custom Queries

Enables clinical users to create your own bespoke exports on measures dictated by you
  • Customisable query exports based on specific criteria you require
  • Can be used to address important clinical issues for your team
Use the custom queries tool to:
  • Identify a specific cohort of patients who did not receive an acute intervention
  • Investigate patient outcomes
  • Answer casemix queries
  • Track data specifically related to your QI project
  • Further understand possible causes of low performance

 







 
DIY Root Cause Analysis Tool 

This tool provides teams with SSNAP data analysis for case mix and key acute measures within SSNAP reporting
