‘How to get buy-in for your difficult decisions: every picture tells a story’ was the title of our panel session delivered as part of the Together - delivering with partners’ programme hosted by NHS Providers on 9 December 2021.
As the saying goes 'a picture tells a thousand words'. Our panellists shared the details of how their organisations have used the power of visualising data to bring their projects and stories to life. They explore how this has supported decision making both within their organisation, and collaboratively across their systems.
Micky Griffith, Programme Director - Fit for the Future, Gloucestershire Integrated Care System shared the success of using geospatial mapping to support delivery of their clinical strategy - A single, ground-breaking specialist hospital for Gloucestershire operating out of two campuses, one in Cheltenham and one in Gloucester.
Shauna McMahon, Chief Information Officer, North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, talked about the Humber Acute Services Review (HASR). a significant programme of work that is clinically led, about transforming how care is delivered to ensure the best service delivery for the local population. She described how data analysis and geospatial mapping is helping to inform and support the planning for services. GIS Mapping services form an invaluable tool for taking some very complex data and presenting it in a simple form.
Micky and Shauna were joined by Ian Maxfield, SCW Associate Head of Geographic Intelligence & Mapping who provided an introduction to geospatial services, and Sarah Reed, SCW Associate Director – Workforce, who explored how visualisation of the workforce can support data-driven strategy development.
