NHS Trust in UK Chooses Dundas Data Visualization for Dashboard Platform

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Today Dundas Data Visualization announces that a National Health Service (NHS) Trust in the UK has chosen Dundas Dashboard as its dashboard and data visualization platform.

The NHS provides public health care in the UK and Devon Partnership NHS Trust provides mental health and learning disability services in the county of Devon, in the south west of the country. The dashboards will track various key metrics, including waiting times and patient follow-ups, which will help the Trust to monitor its performance against internal and national targets.

The Trust needed a dashboard solution to make the vast amount of health information it deals with easier to analyze and use. The staff who will benefit from the dashboards are mostly clinicians, and needed a solution that would allow them to quickly understand insights from large volumes of data. Once implemented, the dashboards will visualize data more effectively and make data more meaningful.

The dashboard will be used by approximately 2,000 staff, including doctors, consultants, and clinical team leaders. Non-clinical teams, directors and managers of the organization will also use the dashboard.

Devon Partnership NHS Trust selected Dundas Dashboard because it provided user features, including annotations, which allow users to comment on the data and collaborate. They also wanted interaction from the data, including drill-down functionality, which Dundas Dashboard also supports.

Head of Performance Information at the Trust, Rony Arafin, said: "One of the key reasons we chose the Dundas Dashboard platform was because of the user-friendly features. We were looking for a solution that would provide some interaction with the data, especially drill-through functionality, so that people can drill-through the information easily through a much richer visual platform. We also wanted to allow people to comment on the data, to facilitate seamless communication across a wide range of clinical and non-clinical staff, in order to drive improvement and, ultimately, improve the experience of the users of our services. The annotation feature that Dundas Dashboard offered is an important enabler for us."

Troy Marchand, President and CEO of Dundas Data Visualization, said: "The NHS and Dundas share the goal of trying to produce better results by making data easy to understand and accessible to a wider audience. The NHS strives to provide the best possible health care for UK residents, and we were happy to provide the Dundas Dashboard platform to help them improve the standards of delivering information."

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Tha...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster.

Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
