The ultimate aim for many organisations that are undertaking workforce planning is to be able to see the outcome of future scenarios on their workforce. Our team has worked with numerous organisations to devise scenario models using data and evidence to inform a realistic view of the current and future environment, which can be used as a base for workforce planning decisions.
We recognise that the provision and delivery of health and social care is complex. However, we believe there is value in collecting the detail of the delivery of care and can work with you to be able to quantify it numerically.
Since the advent of modern analytical tools, large volumes of data can be rapidly analysed and visualised to deliver valuable insights into both workforce and activity. More information on this can be found in our Data Visualisation section.
Through our experience we have found that a data driven approach:
- Supports clinicians in making decisions to transform the delivery of care, leading to insights into potential improvements in care the can lead to increased savings
- Improves clinical and front-line buy-in to the modelling output. This increases the chances of successful implementation delivering real improvements for service users and the public
- Improves understanding of the operational delivery of care across all disciplines
- Provides further insight into other aspects of the care that are not directly related to the primary challenge asked of WRaPT
