Hawke’s Bay has developed a strategic partnership with Healthcare Logic to integrate its hospital analytics solution into the district health board’s environment.


Executive director digital enablement Anne Speden says the board is implementing SystemView to “enable our clinicians and health services to improve clinical processes and performance”. 


“We have successfully completed the first phase and are about to embark on the second phase to develop an automated, curated data environment that will take data from our ECA patient administration system and deliver near real-time actionable insights through a visual and interactive interface,” she tells


Chief executive of Healthcare Logic Martin Connor spoke to eHealthTV during Digital Health Week NZ in Hamilton in November, where he described SystemView as a next-generation data platform for public hospitals.


“It automates and visualises the patient-level data that clinical teams, administrators, executives and policymakers need to improve the outcomes of clinical systems, and provides patient-identifiable data so that we can support quality improvement interventions without having to worry about access to data,” he said.


The company has installations in Queensland and South Australia and its work with Hawke’s Bay DHB will be its first in New Zealand.


Connor says Hawke’s Bay is a great partner, “to both appreciate the potential of SystemView and also to enable us to have the right conversations about both data and clinical processes to give us very high confidence of a successful installation with a short time to value”.


He says the DHB has made some smart strategic decisions about leadership structure that have combined their ICT, analytics and quality improvement teams into the same division. 


“This means there is direct access not only to the data and the systems, but also the interpretation, process analysis and clinical engagement that is required to engineer their intended shift towards a true data-led culture,” he says. 


Speden adds: “we are forming a strong foundation for an effective broader developmental partnership as we can see very positive connections between our strategy, their roadmap and our agile result-oriented organisation.”


Connor told eHTV that clinical leaders want to improve the clinical systems they work with, and one of their key frustrations is access to the information required to make better decisions.


“If we can make sustained progress there, we can get better outcomes and improve relationships, but also begin to learn better about what types of interventions are going to be effective in clinical systems,”  he said.
