Everything we do involves collaborating and partnering for a better health system.
Last year our Clinical Informatics team partnered with NALHN Aboriginal Health to streamline their national data reporting on Aboriginal Health indicators. Led by Executive Director, Kurt Towers, NALHN Aboriginal Health delivers high quality and compassionate services to support the wellbeing of the Aboriginal Community.
Through genuine partnership and collaboration, our teams worked closely together and identified opportunities to use rich data assets to identify at-risk patients and develop an interactive analytics dashboard to deliver insights on chronic disease management, preventative health, and child and maternal health indicators.
This partnership included CEIH expertise in data science, user experience, data engineering and business analysis, working closely with key Watto Purrunna Aboriginal Health Service staff, to design and develop the insights-driven analytics dashboard.
This approach will make a real difference to Aboriginal people serviced across NALHN, with the data insights helping Kurt and his team in the planning of their services to improve health outcomes for the Aboriginal Community.
We’re proud of this partnership which proves that many minds are better than one and that data makes possibilities endless.
We look forward to continuing this wonderful partnership with NALHN Aboriginal Health and supporting their new patient information system.
