Improving quality and lowering costs in health care
Stockholm County Council increases efficiencies with shared skills and shared data
Stockholm County Council (SLL) uses several different SAS solutions for analysis and reporting to improve health care outcomes, reduce government costs and improve citizen welfare. To become even more efficient, the council conducted a successful consolidation project with help from SAS partner BearingPoint. As a result, all units within SLL now have access to shared information, shared skills and a common interface. The consolidation has lowered SLL costs and was kept within predetermined budgets and time frames.
The joint portal (called GUPS) covers SLL's need to collect, analyze and report data for planning and monitoring needs, volume, quality and effectiveness of health care. Users of the information include purchasing officials, pharmaceutical centers, hospitals and other care providers.
On budget, on time
"The Administrative Board meets every two weeks. A more regular contact between all users of the platform allows us to easily share knowledge and learn from each other's experience," says Lord.
