Unlock more insights from healthcare data in Qlik Sense

Unlock more insights from healthcare data in Qlik Sense

Big Data has been utilised in healthcare analytics systems for years and has proven invaluable. Remote patient monitoring technologies alone are deployed by 88% of healthcare providers in the US as of 2019. And with new healthcare data sources such as IoT devices and wearable tech being introduced all the time, it’s no surprise that the healthcare analytics market is anticipated to reach $16,753 million by 2030 at a forecasted 13% CAGR. 

The importance of gathering and analysing medical data is without question. The issue is information overload, as healthcare professionals may need help to draw conclusive answers from an ever-growing number of disparate healthcare analytics and healthcare data dashboards. This can cause misalignments in opinions or even mistakes in care decisions, putting patients’ health at risk.   

Therefore, healthcare sector brands need a single source of truth when disseminating the sheer volume of data signals out there. They need the right dashboarding and data visualization tools to help them make sense of their healthcare data analytics quickly and dynamically. 

This article will explain how Vizlib can boost Qlik Sense capabilities in healthcare analytics and help teams balance better patient outcomes with healthy business profits.  

Benefits of enhancing Clinical Intelligence with healthcare analytics tools like Qlik Sense

The term Clinical Intelligence describes the process and tools used to conduct healthcare analysis to improve patient outcomes. You can read more about the benefits of Clinical Intelligence tools here

The Big Data sources used in healthcare analytics can include electronic health records, examination results, IoT-enabled medical device data, biomedical research and population health management recommendations. 

Tools like Qlik Cloud  provide enterprise data integration and cutting-edge healthcare industry analytics on a single platform to help healthcare providers make data-backed health decisions quickly. Over 3,000 (and counting) healthcare organisations deploy Qlik Sense to benefit them in the following areas:  

  • Operating Room and Emergency Department Flow 
  • Labour/productivity/workforce data analysis 
  • Pharmacy Supply Chain and Medication Use 
  • Revenue Cycle Management 
  • Executive dashboard visibility…and more  

Qlik Sense, and other advanced healthcare analytics tools align with patient privacy and data security protocols, which you can read more about here.  

Furthermore, the best Clinical Intelligence solutions integrate with data visualization tools like Vizlib to enhance Qlik Sense’s ability to disseminate healthcare analytics to relevant parties.  

Unlock actionable insights with Vizlib

Vizlib is a low-code, intuitive suite of products that democratises Clinical Intelligence for Qlik Sense users, meaning that teams can gather and present Big Data findings without learning a programming language.  

Here is a round-up of Vizlib’s tools and how they can help empower better patient care and business intelligence outcomes: 

Vizlib Library: Making healthcare data dashboards more accessible

Whether you’re looking to generate charts, Venn diagrams, or project timelines, Vizlib Library  provides over 20 highly customisable dashboarding components to help teams quickly digest the information they need to make informed decisions. You can save reports as templates to update and share with team members in seconds.  

When integrated with additional tools like Vizlib Finance, users can create financial forecast reports. Plus, the Vizlib Viztips feature allows users to drill down into healthcare data dashboard information to gain additional insight into the data sets presented. For example, from a bar chart, users can click on any part of the graph data to view exact figures, saving teams the trouble of listing this data elsewhere on their screens.  

Vizlib Actions is another feature of Vizlib Library that can help build data literacy for those less experienced in analytics. It performs predefined actions to help guide users through the dashboarding and data visualizations process to ensure that all vital information is understood.  

Hermes Arzneimittel Holding GmbH, a leading supplier and manufacturer of high-quality healthcare products, uses Vizlib Library to transform their Qlik Sense tables and charts to make them more visually impactful.  

“I recently had an export requirement that relied on a specific format, and I know we couldn’t have done it with normal Qlik Sense. It was easy with the Vizlib Pivot Table. And for me, as a developer, that’s a big factor.” Christian Kuhn, Team Lead Regulatory Affairs International, Hermes Arzneimittel Holding GmbH. 

Vizlib Collaboration: Reducing bottlenecks in crucial services

Collaboration is vital in bringing the best outcome in patient care. However, suppose your analytics consists of static, read-only sheets in Excel. In that case, it can be challenging for parties to collaborate and revise findings, slowing the resolution of cases, or leading to dangerous mistakes. 

 Vizlib Collaboration includes a bank of interactive features which help make analytics more flexible for medical teams. Its Writeback Table      feature, for example, allows users to alter and add comments to data sets to help everyone take part in the decision-making process. It also provides an audit trail enabling managers and healthcare data analysts to track all contributions with time and date logs, helping medical teams maintain data quality at all times. 

You can also add on Vizlib Server to communicate vital patient data to third-party databases like Oracle. Vizlib Server will also help healthcare teams maintain data security, as it allows managers to set up user access protocols, security rules and validation criteria to ensure GDPR compliance.

In addition, Vizlib Gantt is a user-friendly project timeline-building tool you can add to Vizlib Collaboration to ensure companies have the data findings they need to complete their task objectives.   

Healthcare data analysts at Wrightington, Wigan, and Leigh (WWL) NHS Foundation Trust  use VizLib Collaboration to communicate with A&E doctors while ensuring their data quality remains impeccable and their workflows are managed effectively. 

“Driving meaningful conversations within Qlik Sense creates immense value — think of an A&E Dashboard with the collaboration capability. It allows vital messages and alerts to flow instantly, leading to faster and more effective communication and, ultimately, better care for patients.”Mark Singleton, WWL Head of Business Intelligence and Acting Associate Director of IM&T.
