THE CHALLENGE

 

Our engagement began with a focused initiative on COVID reporting, leveraging data to provide timely and accurate insights into the situation. This involved the creation of comprehensive reports, presentations, and dashboard products that were vital in monitoring and communicating crucial information related to the pandemic. The success of this initial stage laid the foundation for the expanded case.

As the Public Health landscape transitioned from the acute phase of the pandemic, our collaboration shifted towards addressing business-as-usual tasks. This involved an array of ongoing public health initiatives, including a dedicated project on substance misuse.

In response to these evolving needs, our team continued to deliver a range of communication materials. Presentations served as a means to distil complex data into comprehensible insights, facilitating effective communication with stakeholders. Reports offered in-depth analyses, delving into the intricacies of various Public Health projects and providing valuable recommendations for decision-makers.

 

THE SOLUTION

 

During the challenging times of the pandemic, we played a crucial role in delivering regular updates on COVID-19 cases, patient information, and the impact of the virus on the community. This involved the careful analysis and reporting of data to provide a comprehensive understanding of the situation, contributing to informed decision-making and strategic planning.

A key achievement was our contribution to Lancashire’s vaccination delivery planning, exceeding 1.2 million residents. Utilising data-driven insights, we crafted responsive vaccination strategies, ensuring successful and timely inoculation.

Beyond the pandemic, we facilitated a comprehensive review of substance misuse services. Our Quality Assurance Framework product guided lead commissioners and service heads in evaluating service effectiveness, timeliness, and equity, ensuring efficient service delivery and client support.

 

THE RESULT

 

In response to COVID challenges, we established automated reporting systems using PowerBi, providing real-time COVID data. Regular Situational Report meetings presented findings, aiding stakeholders’ decisions. We set up vaccine uptake monitoring, enhancing public health strategy.

For substance misuse, we analysed client trends using published indicators and NDTMS data. Collaborating on a Quality Assurance Framework, we selected relevant metrics for service reshaping and monitoring. This framework ensured service alignment with best practices and allowed for continuous improvement, adapting to community needs and delivering high-quality care.
