In our programme evaluation work, and other contact with PHOs and practices, we frequently encounter situations where a small amount of expert health IT input at an earlier stage could have significantly improved a project. CBG can analyse a programme and advise on the database design and infrastructure.
Because we know the data structures in most PMS systems, hospital systems and national databases, we can ensure from the outset that reporting will be accurate and comparable with other services, and that on-going monitoring and quality improvement will be reliable. In particular, we have positioned this service for funders: e.g. DHBs considering funding a programme requiring regular reporting against KPIs - e.g. a PHO / other provider providing a community service. A preliminary CBG IT Health Check can save a lot of problems later on.
