Elizabeth Street, Australia (PressExposure) June 13, 2013 -- The partnership will see the Trust - the largest provider of mental health and community care services in Lancashire, and one of the biggest in England - utilise Yellowfin's Mobile BI capabilities to deliver reporting and analytics to its 6000 field based clinicians.

Due to Lancashire Care's goal of democratizing its data - making it available to its broad range of services personnel - attaining a cost effective BI solution was important.
"It quickly became apparent how expensive most Business Intelligence solutions were to roll-out across large organisations," said Lancashire Care Director of Finance, Dave Tomlinson. "We wanted a solution which could start small and then be scaled up without giving us headaches about cost. With Yellowfin's value for money pricing structure, we knew we could do just that."
Independent data access and analysis on-the-go
Field-based clinicians can now independently access and share the information they need to boost individual and collective performance, as well as improve the quality and efficiency of patient care.
"Previously, the Trust's community services staff worked remotely via a paper-based diary system of record keeping," said Lancashire Care Business Intelligence Manager, Mark Singleton. "With Yellowfin, our services staff can enhance the care they provide, by independently accessing personalised patient and performance data directly from their tablet devices in real-time, wherever and whenever necessary."
"When evaluating the different Mobile BI solutions on the market, I often found that each product would have its own strengths, but would come with equal weaknesses," said Singleton. "However, Yellowfin was different. No matter how hard I challenged and pushed the product, it always delivered."
Beyond Mobile BI: Enhanced management visibility
Using Yellowfin, the Trust has also developed a Balanced Scorecard - pulling together clinical, financial, human resources and quality control information - to provide Trust executives, management and Board of Directors a comprehensive picture of current Trust performance.
