Business Intelligence for Health Services

Providing secure reports to public and private audiences

Dudley CCG

NHS Dudley CCG is the NHS organisation responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) healthcare services for over 300,000 people registered with a GP in Dudley. This includes all GP Practices across six Primary Care Networks.

The Challenge

Dudley CCG needed to build a platform that not only analysed data but allowed access to multiple audiences. A secure, but easily scalable SAS analytics tool was the answer.

The Solution

The new platform utilised SAS visual analytics for reporting and model building. In addition, AWS WAF enabled secure access for public use. Load balancing was dealt with by Amazon Cloudfront.

The VPC and SAS EC2 server was built using Cloudformation along with Ansible for deploying SAS Visual Analytics.

The People

The Result

Within 2 weeks, the BI Platform was built and integrated with Dudley CCG’s existing systems. This gave them a secure, scalable, group wide platform to host public and internal facing reports.

New reports and subsequent data migrations were completed with the next 4 months.

Alscient have used this fast build technique with many of our clients. The method allows results quickly, enabling multiple stakeholders to see the many benefits for future projects.
