Decision-making in the NHS has
never been harder

Unprecedented operational pressures, spiralling ambulance response
times, increased A&E waiting times and staff shortages.

Every day you make complex choices about where to allocate scarce
capacity, resulting in imperfect trade offs. Bottlenecks in care
pathways are impacting patient outcomes.

Something needs to change.

Make the right decisions for patients and staff

Patient intelligence

  • Understand what’s happening and where things have gone wrong
  • Predict and fix bottlenecks in patient flow
  • Proactively plan interventions under different demand and capacity scenarios

Discharge optimisation

Join up care teams and reduce length of stay
  • Accelerate front door screening with
    automatic alerts
  • Align multidisciplinary teams around a common discharge plan
  • Give partners the information needed to manage community discharge demands
  • Understand the reasons patients stay
    longer in hospital and take action

Bed allocation

The right bed, first time, every time
  • Optimise bed allocation to improve flow
    and reduce unnecessary patient moves
  • Allocate beds on predicted demand and capacity constraints
  • Dynamically plan your hospital estate for
    now and the future

    proactively plan for cover

    with overbooking

    provider level


Build operational resilience and improve
patient outcomes

Mission control for your organisation


  • Root cause analysis – Click into patient pathways and see exactly why things went wrong yesterday, and what’s likely to play out tomorrow.
  • Forecasting – Understand what will happen next with accurate forecasts, even when your data is messy and the world around you is changing quickly. 
  • Scenario planning – See the consequences of each option before deciding which one to take, so you can be confident you’ve made the right call for patients and staff. 
  • Optimisation – Optimise how you use your scarce resources so every patient gets the right care, in the right place, at the right time. 
  • Risk modelling – Sort patients according to their health risk and target interventions with precision and confidence.
