What we do

The SIA’s model was built together with NHS colleagues as well as system specialists, so it was not a disconnected or remote approach. Moreover the alliance is real, up and running and is not a “marriage of convenience” between unconnected parties.
 
It is offered to the NHS as a model which can be used by you and for your priorities. The SIA members collaborate with NHS teams, learn and support them though the analytical and implementation process.
 
Data on its own does not deliver results. It is only when combined with clinical practice and financial resource availability that informed insights are possible. Some results may be unexpected and surprising!  Predictive models need to support the design of and implementation of front-line clinical changes.
 
Thus insights for these clinically-led changes are via verifiable, statistically sound information.  It further allows the NHS user body to promote a creative dialogue, from Clinician to Management and Board level.
 
It might be argued that some recorded data does not fully reflect daily realities, but is system compliance. That point is well understood. To make measurement meaningful it has to be better, reliable and generate tangible outputs.
That implementation process can take time, but then beneficial changes must rest on solid foundations.
 
We offer the capacity to move seamlessly from a system level view right down to specific pathway at ICD10 levels, thereby affording a high level of granularity and accuracy.
 
We do so in order to provide the level of information to achieve safer and better services for the NHS and its patients from a joined–up system.
 
Clinicians and Operational Management inhabit the same space and as an independent partner, the derived information and actions is made available within the institution. Data needs to flow both in horizontal and vertical vectors to achieve the desired changes. The SIA approach is and designed to be, fully transparent to its NHS clients.
