From real-world evidence to real-world impact

Posted on 17 December 2020

In the Christmas edition of their magazine, The Decision Group (a consultancy firm), has written an article about Dr. Joris van Dijk’s & Job Eijsink’s experiences with implementing and using Real World Evidence (RWE). Van Dijk and Eijsink both work in Isala hospital – a hospital with a great focus on integrating VBHC initiatives within several specializations. In the article Van Dijk and Eijsink mention CTcue as a system to generate the data for dashboards with:

At Isala we have our own advanced BI department that can retrieve all structured data from the data warehouse itself. We can therefore do most of the jobs ourselves. As soon as we want to combine structured and unstructured data in a dashboard, we use CTcue to retrieve the unstructured data from the EHR, and then export this data to Power BI for visualization to create dashboards. That combination is very nice.” 

They also stress the importance of using unstructured data to add value to healthcare:

“These dashboards run entirely on our own data warehouse because you want it refreshed at night. For the outcomes, we make use of CTcue as the unstructured data is also very important here in order to be able to add value to healthcare.”
