Arden & GEM’s Business Intelligence service has been successfully shortlisted at the Health Business Awards 2021 in the ‘Healthcare IT’ and ‘Patient Data’ categories.

Recognising and celebrating the many examples of innovation and excellence that happen every day in the NHS, the Health Business Awards finalists shortlist includes two Business Intelligence solutions from Arden & GEM’s Data and Systems Team and Advanced Analytics Unit.

The first shortlisting, in the Healthcare IT category, recognises the National Immunisation and Vaccination System (NIVS) which was developed to enable real time data capture at the point of delivery for the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

NIVS is now live in 457 vaccination settings and has captured over 10 million vaccination events to support safe administration and live reporting. A home screen dashboard within NIVS allows users to monitor numbers vaccinated by cohort while validated and consolidated data automatically updates patient GP records on a daily basis.

The second shortlisting is for the Segmentation Model Towards Individualised Health (SMITH), which has been designed and implemented for Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCG to better understand healthcare consumption, outcomes and inequalities.

SMITH is a needs-based segmentation model, which brings together secondary and primary care data, to give systems a complete view of their entire population to improve care planning and delivery.

The winning projects will be announced during a virtual ceremony – presented by GP, columnist and broadcaster, Dr Mark Porter MBE – on Thursday 9 December 2021.
