Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust has selected Agilisys to provide a cloud-based data platform which will support its digital strategy. 

The platform will provide reporting and analytics services, with tools to help trust colleagues handle the more than 50million pieces of data which are created every month. The platform will also support colleague collaboration and enable users to explore and exploit data.

Agilisys will also establish and embed a Data Management Framework designed to support the trust’s ambition for digitally-enabled, integrated patient-centred care with data incorporated at every level of the organisation.

Guy Dickie, associate director of digital at the trust, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to enhance our data analytics capability, harnessing the power of the Trust’s data to develop a state of the art, modern solution which improves care and efficiency, reduces risk and saves money. Using our existing strong foundations, we have a once in a generation opportunity to revolutionise and scale our use of data.”

Max Jones, managing partner for health at Agilisys, also recognised the potential of the partnership.

He added: “This partnership truly excites because it’s about more than just cutting-edge technology…it’s cutting-edge thinking. Together, we’ll harness our collective knowledge, shared values and deep ambition to turn data into a primary asset for making better decisions for patients. Inward investment and clinical research opportunities are also at the heart of our plans, not least because they create additional mechanisms for enhancing clinical outcomes.

“This is a truly visionary partnership that will put Leeds Teaching Hospitals at the forefront of healthcare data excellence and develop skills within the Trust that will ensure on-going success, while also recognising how service continuity and transition is at the heart of the end-user experience.”

It’s another boost for digital transformation specialists Agilisys – whose Social Care Cost and Demand Modelling solution has recently been made available to local authorities to help them better plan their social care resources.
