Helping Trusts access data directly to create complex analytics and integrate with other business intelligence tools

Trusts today require access to the most pertinent data and information to accomplish efficient tasks and valuable analysis. As a leading provider of healthcare intelligence and quality improvement products and services, our iCompare system already provides a user friendly, efficient and wide range of analysis tools delivering comparative performance and patient safety benchmarking. As the use of business intelligence (BI) software grows across the NHS, Trusts want to be able to show critical business and governance data in a single system for staff to facilitate decision making. Informatics teams and operational managers want to be able to produce reports using a single source of data from a trust wide BI software.

The solution

The CHKS application programming interface (API) allows clients to extract the same data they can analyse in iCompare directly into their BI tools. CHKS gives you the ability to create complex data analytics and integration with local BI tools increasing automation in your data flows.
