  • InFocus+

    InFocus+ is the advanced functionality package of our InFocus dashboards, making it easier and quicker to identify and predict areas of variance and opportunities for improvement, both for your own organisation, as well as for your system.

    What it delivers

    Using the InFocus dashboard as its basis, InFocus+’s advanced analytics functionality allows users at all levels to quickly identify key focus areas for organisational or system-wide performance, and be more efficient with their own analytical resources. InFocus+ is highly configurable and can take multiple data sets from different areas such as primary and social care, and combine them to give an intelligent and predictive view of your performance.

    Benefits

    • Improved performance across the system: As InFocus+ can pull together different types of datasets into one location, users across a healthcare system are presented with a single version of truth, and can quickly access the information and insights that they need to improve performance.
    • Flexibility to make you future-ready: Metrics can be designed for your specific requirements, and InFocus+ has the flexibility to create new metrics as your requirements change – even if it is from a new data source.
    • Making the complex simple: InFocus+’s consistent visual language enables anyone looking at the dashboard to understand trends, or variation highlighted by the data. This glance analysis conveys the message quickly and will trigger relevant actions quickly rather than requiring a competent analyst to get the information.
