CASE STUDY: DATA IN MENTAL HEALTH
Harness Advanced Analytic Applications to Improve Outcomes in Mental Health
In comparison to other fields of medicine, applying advanced analytics to strengthen care delivery in a mental health context has been relatively limited. Deliver deeper patient insights by advancing your AI/ML capabilities and expanding your data sources to include consumer health data. Create an action plan to:
- Streamline your service delivery and patient flow by leveraging ML to gain key insights, including prediction of no shows and readmissions
- Enhance your ability to identify signals of relapse with new data sources from consumer wearables
- Optimize treatment selection by predicting case complexity and optimal service delivery modality
Revolutionize your mental health service delivery and outcomes with data.
INDUSTRY EXPERT: AI
Case Studies in Data Analytics and AI in Canadian Healthcare

CASE STUDY: CONTINUOUS PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
THE TEAM APPROACH: AN EFFECTIVE STRUCTURE TO DEVELOP AND EMPOWER TALENT, CREATE CAPACITY, CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVE AND INNOVATE
There are many challenges in the fast-moving data analytics field of the changing healthcare industry. Our biggest challenge is not data, not technologies, not even budget but the right talent and a sustainable high-performance team. There are 30+ team members in the London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) Decision Support and Business Intelligence Team, with highly specialized expertise in hospital internal and external reporting, data analysis, knowledge creation, knowledge distribution, as well as internal consulting. There was a need for course correction, as although staff were working very hard and produced large quantities of reports and BI products, customers were dissatisfied and disconnected. In order to create capacity, we needed to prioritize automation by leveraging our BI data warehouse, standardizing our toolsets, empowering people, and really listening to clients. Our initial deep-dive analysis pinpointed root causes; for example, it was apparent that our traditional hospital leadership structure and approach were ineffectively engaging knowledge workers, which contributed to the lack of innovation and inspiration. We have since recognized that technical subject matter experts should be formally included in our leader team structure, where they have accountability to contribute to and help develop our departmental vision, business strategies, proactive planning for training, capacity building, team building, and mentoring team member professional development. A Team Lead model was established with the recognition of the daily technical and operational workload and the fast-growing professional and technical knowledge needs for data analytics healthcare. Three Team Leads (Decision Support and Knowledge Transfer, Data Analytics and Community, BI Services and Products) were promoted within the department to establish a core professional team structure to work on team vision, strategies, branding, promotion, and operational priorities. The following were the key deliverables of the new team structure in place for 12 months:
- Developed a Strategy Roadmap with five key initiatives (Reporting Infrastructure, Corporate Reporting, Re-Branding & Operational Models, Building Data Community, Research, and Innovation). Several projects with timelines fall under each category.
- Implemented Power BI as a reporting infrastructure to effectively and efficiently deliver comprehensive clinical and operational data to clinical units daily to support the enterprise-wide initiative of Continuous Improvement of Care
- Implemented projects that aim to automate and maintain regular reports and expand self-serve reporting to leverage Power BI to efficiently deliver the right information to the right people at the right time
- Established a centralized intake and task assignment tool process to allow measuring activities and workforce efforts, ensure knowledge distribution among team members and improve communications with clients.
- Established regular meetings, retreats, formal regular check-ins, and focus group discussions to systematically analyze the evolving situation and challenge the leaders, the team, and the hospital to do better and continuously improve
PANEL: DATA ACCESSIBILITY
Democratize your Data to Maximize its Value and Accessibility
Achieving effective analytics starts with improved data literacy. However, there is still confusion surrounding what organizations must do to not only capture the necessary data but to mobilize it. Boost your productivity and create a sustainable digital environment with democratized data. Source practical tips to:
- Establish clear goals and boundaries for determining what your data should accomplish
- Create an action plan to educate teams on appropriate data acquisition and use
- Understand the ‘power plant’ of data and information management
Develop an integrated approach to improve your organization’s data literacy.
CASE STUDY: DIGITAL PROCESSES
Lessons from Digitizing Processes in Healthcare with a Data-First Approach
Medication reviews are an important part of healthcare and safe prescribing for older adults, and in Long Term Care settings, these reviews largely remain a pen-and-paper process. Development of a digital process creates a more efficient workflow for clinicians, but also allows us to rethink how data can be collected and applied in this healthcare setting. We discuss our approach to:
- Successfully collect and use data to improve care.
- Engage clinicians to be part of a new digital process.
- Utilize insights made possible from the data collected.
CASE STUDY: RARE DISEASES
Evaluation of Real-World Data Assets on Rare Diseases
There are many existing data sources that could be potentially used for real-world evidence generation purposes. However, majority of them are broad datasets with limited focus on rare diseases. This study gathers information on existing data sources in the indications and geography of interest, and compares the coverage, time span and capabilities of datasets. Evaluation of data quantity and quality in terms of rare diseases of interest is then performed to estimate potential bias in rare disease analysis by comparing demographics across datasets. Gain deeper knowledge to;
- Evaluate real-world datasets to provide assessment for fit for RWE generation in rare diseases
- Gather information on coverage, capacities, and characteristics of 10+ real-world datasets
- Provide insights on potential bias of broad datasets for rare disease analysis
