UK hospital taps SAS for analytics

Tuesday 28 May 2013 | 17:20 CET | News
Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust has chosen SAS to transform how it manages and delivers research through big data visualisation. Information will be used from all its clinical and non-clinical systems to build a single view of the patient from which it can then apply SAS analytic techniques. The deal, the first time SAS has worked with a UK hospital trust, will deliver better clinical outcomes and build an enterprise information layer that improves how the hospitals deliver patient-centred care. Royal Brompton & Harefield will initially use SAS Visual Analytics to give quick insight into research problems that can be more fully explored on the SAS platform. The trust will then look to move some of its operational reporting into Visual Analytics and, in the longer-term, the service will be seen as a mechanism by which clinicians and management collaborate and share insight across the business of the hospital.
