Tarian Group was formed to improve the access and quality of healthcare provision across a number of sites in South Wales.
With a focus on productivity, they implement solutions to combat the challenges that General Practice faces in these ever-changing times.
At their St John’s Medical Practice location, their ‘Virtual Ward’ concept – a multi-disciplinary approach to managing patients in the community – was running so successfully that the local health board were interested in rolling out this concept across the entire region.
But there was a catch.
The Health Board needed sound evidence that the concept was a success before it could seek central Government funding for the roll out. But, the concept’s complex nature, and limited access to data capture, meant it was difficult to ‘prove’ it was making an impact.
That’s where we came in.
Our role on this project was twofold. Not only did we need to implement a data capture and reporting suite that could prove both the short-term and long-term benefits of the ‘Virtual Wards’ concept, we would also need to provide the basis of a business plan to secure Welsh Government funding.
Here’s what we did:
- We built a complex outcomes suite that included a detailed benchmark and workflow analysis.
- We incorporated a longitudinal approach of the practice systems.
- We implemented a reporting process that was used to map the success of the project itself – this data informed the business plan used in part to secure Welsh Government transformation funding which in turn facilitated its roll out across the Health Board.
Such was the success of this concept that the Virtual Ward team at St John’s Medical Practice were shortlisted for the Team of the Year award at the national General Practice Awards.
