How to gather data efficiently

What good is collecting data if you can’t put it to the best possible use? With Radar Healthcare, you can get your data to work for you, gaining insight and knowledge that will help you with continuous improvement across your entire organisation.

The phrase GIGO (garbage in, garbage out) is commonly used in the IT industry to describe how the quality of the output is determined by the quality of the input. As a result, organisations are under pressure to ensure that their data collection methods bring in high-quality data. But with so many options available, how do you make sure you’re using the right technology for your organisation?

One of the most common issues in the healthcare industry is digital adoption, which conjures up ideas of complex codes, multiple systems and wasted time and effort. It doesn’t have to be that way; sometimes it’s better to go back to basics and focus on collecting the right data before doing anything with it.

Four Seasons Health Care Group, one of our partners, has done just that, and as a result, they have completely transformed the way they look at reporting. They’ve taken significant steps toward improving quality of care by collecting the right data and having one centralised data system instead of three, not to mention saving them 65% percent on licence fees.

At Radar Healthcare, we know the world of data can sometimes feel confusing – that’s why our software is here to help. Some of our key features include:

Secure Data

With our secure and protected system, you can rest easy knowing that your patients’ and colleagues’ data is stored safely, confidentially and accurately.

Integrate with other systems

With the help of our inhouse development team, we can help you integrate systems from a variety of different departments including Care Management, IT, and HR. Like Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, you don’t have to worry about the technical side once your systems talk to each another.

Centralised Data

It’s fine to have organised sets of data, but they must also be accessible to the right people at the right times. By utilising a centralised management system, it will make navigating and collecting data much easier for you and your team. With Radar Healthcare, everything is in one place, so you don’t have to overwhelm your team with different data points.

Configurable to you

Unlike other providers, Radar Healthcare is completely flexible and we’ll never ask you to change your processes. We’ll take your way of working and digitise it to allow you to develop what’s needed to attain your KPIs. Our customised modules enable you to create forms, risk matrixes, assessments and audits to aid in the collection of data.

Ongoing support

Throughout the onboarding process and beyond, we work in collaboration with our partners – no matter how big or small – to make sure that everyone gets what they need.

Radar Healthcare is more than just software; it identifies areas for improvement, supports your teams in implementing best practices and new initiatives, and saves time while you’re at work. All while helping to provide the best outcomes for you and your patients.

Don’t let data hold you back, use it right, and it will help you with your future.
