Ramakanth Gade says VCH's True North goals are reflected in everything his team does.
The Business Analyst with Strategy Deployment and Clinical Optimization at Richmond Hospital believes the Clinical & Systems Transformation (CST) project will also help him reach these goals.
"CST has the potential to deliver a phenomenal shift in the way we provide care to our patients," says Ramakanth.
He says it's critical to get data quickly to identify trends and roadblocks preventing patient flow. Today, Ramakanth accesses information in clinical information systems, but this can be difficult and time-consuming because each site has its own.
Through CST, he will be able to get data from one system shared between VCH, PHSA and PHC.
"This will help analysts like me access real time information and identify problems. It also means clinical staff can see their patients more holistically and provide them with better care."
