GHA digital transformation scoops award
Publicly funded Gippsland Health Alliance (GHA) has been recognised for its digital transformation success, with the 2023 Qlik Excellence in Healthcare Award. The organisation was praised for its work in deploying critical business intelligence solutions to solve complex health matters across Victoria’s Gippsland Region.
Asher Brooks, GHA Lead Reporting and Business Intelligence Developer, thanked the 17 health centres and hospitals supported by GHA’s service, including Latrobe Regional Hospital.
“This award reflects the hard work of Gippsland’s health centres and hospitals, and in particular, Latrobe Regional Hospital, which have championed the journey of digital transformation for their patients, over the past few years,” Brooks said.
“Sharing best practices, resources and collaboration is the key to boosting the efficiency of the regional health sector as a whole.”
In February, GHA switched from an on-premise data centre to cloud, which improved the efficiency of its service to client health sites. With the help of data strategy and analytics firm Notitia, the project took only a month to complete.
“We have seen the positive impact on health care in Gippsland,” Brooks said.
“GHA, along with our health centres and hospitals, has greatly benefited from improved security, data and reporting.”
Alex Avery, Notitia Managing Director and Founder, said that the work that GHA had achieved with its health clients was sector-leading.
“Data and technology has enabled Gippsland’s health sites to go toe-to-toe with the Victorian metro health sites,” he said.
“It’s really exciting to see this application of data and technology, to improve clinical and operational decision-making, being demonstrated in real life, right here in Victoria.
“It’s been a pleasure to support GHA alongside their data journey and we look forward to working with them as they continue to grow from strength to strength.”
Charlie Farrah, Qlik Senior Director of Solutions and Value Engineering, said GHA had seamlessly and securely managed the Qlik Cloud migration.
“GHA’s seamless migration to Qlik Cloud is applauded as a benchmark for other health sites across Australia who are looking to leverage data to its fullest to help clinicians and the wider health system better perform their duties,” Farrah said.
“Public and private healthcare organisations across Australia stand to benefit hugely from improved data analytics, reporting and security, which help to achieve greater efficiencies, outcomes and patient experiences.”
