Two new Power BI dashboards are ready for release to you - the COVID clinical dashboard and the CVD clinical dashboard.
Each designed around a set topic with easy to navigate filters, these dashboards should assist with case finding, thinking about quality and identifying patients who may need your care.
This will allow practices to see how many of their patients have been tested for COVID-19 and when, but more importantly a detailed breakdown of COVID vaccination – including the ability to map out where patients live.
You'll be able to filter your patients by test results, ethnicity, and vaccination status (and much, much more!). A map is provided so you can also clearly see any clusters of patients meeting the criteria you define, including those patients eligible under 'Group 3' criteria, who are most vulnerable.
For example, the map below shows fully vaccinated Māori patients in west Hamilton.
This dashboard will help practices to specifically identify who has not yet had a COVID vaccine, and where they live, in order to very directly target their vaccination campaign to the people and places it is most needed.
Please note if the map function doesn’t load it could be a browser extension such as LastPass preventing correct operation, please try disabling such extensions.
This dashboard helps practices understand the disease burden their population brings, their CVRA assessment rates, and whether people who have a known past CVD event are on appropriate medication. This will allow practices to specifically identify people most at risk of CVD and to consider ways to lower their risks. In addition to presenting key clinical metrics for your CVD patients, you will also be able to compare your performance against a benchmark group.
In the example shown below, we find that 78 per cent of eligible Māori patients are receiving triple therapy compared with 52 per cent of European patients. We can find out exactly who these patients are within the app and use that information to follow up.
Because the new dashboards now also contain identifiable patient information, we need to make sure we can audit access of this data. Access will therefore only be given to named users in your practice.
Pinnacle will cover Power BI licence costs for one named user per practice, and you can purchase others as required at a rate of $4.50 per user per month. We recommend you begin with access for the clinical lead within your practice.
To arrange access for your named user please contact Libby Harper.
Please note that these dashboards are only available for practices using Indici, Medtech 32 or Medtech Evolution.
Dr Jo ran a “Covid clinical dashboard” session to demonstrate the dashboard and answer any questions. View the recording below.
Our clinical dashboard programme aims to provide focussed data visualisations of your own practice information. The dashboards will give you practical outcomes for individual patients and populations, and in particular support pro-equity activity.
More clinical dashboards are on the way with a focus on diabetes, cancer and respiratory disease outcomes.
If you have ideas for future dashboards that will be useful, questions, or would like a demonstration personalised for your practice please get in touch.
