SLAM saves time & increases efficiencies at South Tees Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Working with Civica enables South Tees Hospital to free up expert income personnel by transferring and removing unnecessary tasks; utilising the cloud optimised SLAM platform.
Increasing demand for income reporting was challenging a small team to do more with less.
South Tees Hospitals contracting team were under growing pressure. They needed to process their income position twice monthly using the output to report to both internal stakeholders and commissioners.
Processing was lengthy, taking over 5 days to modify and import over 50 data imports. With data volumes growing and becoming more complex they found their infrastructure was also starting to struggle with the increasing requirements. On top of that they were now challenged to generate the same requirements with less people and ideally have time to review and analyse the resulting output.
By using SLAM and the associated automation tools the Trust can now spend more time reporting and analysing the results to stakeholders in a more efficient and timely manner.
