Tasmania Health Services creates a nationwide data visualization in four days
The Tasmanian Health Service, responsible for operational analysis in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), has developed dashboards for hospital data in near real-time over the past 18 months.
“The dashboard built on Qlik enables our emergency control centers to display hospital patients and show how many people have been moved to COVID areas. We can also see how many are in quarantine, how many are suspicious, how many are being tested, how many are positive, and where they are in the hospital. “
David Deacon, director of the Tasmanian State Health Service
South Australia Health manages the rapid delivery of critical public health information
Qlik’s data visualization and analytics solutions helped respond to COVID-19 incidents from South Australia Health. Through automated reporting based on current data sets, Qlik informed and supported the National Incident Room, the internal management team and provided insights and population resources at risk. With more than 13 agencies involved, the center needs to share data quickly in order to coordinate the response to pandemics from dashboards created with Qlik.
Identifying hotspots helped them uncover patterns of infection and respond quickly, according to South Australia Health.
“Data is critical to decision making. However, building a solid data pipeline with existing governance structures takes work.
Qlik Industrial Solutions Director for Healthcare and Public Sector Charlie Farah
“The public sector has a real opportunity to learn lessons learned during COVID-19 to create new ways to serve citizens based on data. Sharing data between agencies and promoting high data literacy rates will be key to achieving this,” concludes Farah.
