Nominee's story :
The Data Engineering Team have been at the forefront of the Trust’s digital activity this year, and in particular around their response to the challenges and extra workload that COVID has brought.
The Team consists of 5 specialists who all work alongside 50 other colleagues in I.T to deliver I.T Data and Solutions.
They have managed an extreme amount of applications this past year and were responsible for implementing the Test and Trace app through the Trust on several thousand devices. They oversee all Data warehouse changes to facilitate national requirements that resulted in Cleric changes, e.g. Category 3 / Category 4 changes, electronic prescribing and have facilitated an overwhelming amount of upgrades to the warehouse to ensure that the Trust can continue to maintain its services to support staff and patients. Inclusion of more data into the warehouse has facilitated more analytics and reporting particularly around our critical systems such as GRS, Datix, HR Selenity, etc. The Team provide the essential data and performance monitoring, to allow the Trust to track and scrutinise its performance, and manage all data related activity through the various pathways.
The Team have worked tirelessly to provide data provision to Hospitals throughout the pandemic, to ensure our systems all align, and have driven data support and management around the 3000 ipads used daily by frontline staff as part of their day to day patient data recording. Terabytes of data managed by the team is essential as it enables the trust to monitor and measure performance, assess utilisation, demand and much more. They are responsible for all national mandated work for the Ambulance Data Set (ADS) changes which they have managed at pace and in addition to their day to day activities. Data Engineering is a critical part of the I.T infrastructure, and the Team have remained steadfast in delivering their service through what has been an extraordinary year.
