The Health Estates Facilities Management Association (HefmA), which has a membership of over 380 Estates and Facilities Directors and Managers within the NHS, today announces that it is implementing Intuitive Dashboards, the award-winning Business Intelligence (BI) dashboard solution from Intuitive Business Intelligence. As a result of the implementation, HefmA’s members benefit from instant, real-time visibility of benchmarking data presented in an easy-to-use, interactive dashboard format. Using Intuitive Dashboards, HefmA members can access a consolidated view of estates and facilities management statistics, including regional data from HefmA’s membership body, Estates Return Information Collection (ERIC) and clinical data, empowering them to benchmark and analyse their performance, to achieve cost savings and enhanced quality measures.

Intuitive Dashboards unites critical management information residing in existing disparate NHS data sources, presenting users with relevant information in a highly customisable dashboard format. By delivering proactive alerts to potential shortfalls, as well as highlighting trends, users can take fast action to maintain performance and maximise opportunities, which ultimately aids efficiency, service delivery and cost effectiveness.

Tim Litherland, National Chairman of HefmA, comments, “HefmA members are responsible for the management of the day-to-day operation, maintenance and support services of all hospitals within the NHS. As a result of these wide-ranging responsibilities, our members need access to meaningful information on which to base their decisions about the utilisation of facilities management resources. Our goal is to provide our members with instant access to the data they need, in order to benchmark and improve their performance and effectiveness. Intuitive Dashboards delivers a superior approach to reporting critical information as it is highly customisable, very intuitive to use and enables our members to take a faster, more informed approach to decision-making.”

Litherland concludes, “The emphasis on estate rationalisation means that every aspect of estate and facilities management is under increasing scrutiny. Intuitive Dashboards enables us to meet the evolving needs of our members for a state-of-the-art solution for robust performance analysis and benchmarking of services. Intuitive Dashboards is a must-have dashboard solution for all facilities management professionals who want to drive performance improvements and uphold the quality of their services.”

Tony Bray, Managing Director at Intuitive Business Intelligence, says, “We’re delighted to welcome HefmA to our expanding list of membership and trade association clients. The significant pressures on those delivering essential services to the NHS is set to continue, so we’re extremely pleased that HefmA’s members now benefit from rapid, real-time dashboard access to their critical performance data, irrespective of where the source data resides. As they strive to deliver quality healthcare facilities within the NHS, HefmA’s use of Intuitive Dashboards empowers their members to make more accurate, confident decisions in resource utilisation which will ultimately benefit patients across the UK.”
