  • El contrato no entra en el ámbito de aplicación de la Directiva

The Health Board (HB) are committed to accelerating the transformation of their unscheduled care system. In line with their strategy and to achieve these ambitions the HB sought a partner with a proven track record of supporting integrated health organisations successfully to deliver sustained transformational improvement in the unscheduled care domain. A competitive tender process was issued in May 2018 resulting in a contract award to Lightfoot Solutions.

Lightfoot has become the HB’s partner in developing and supporting scaling change through the use of data in a single exclusive platform which provides a unique offering which is detailed in the additional information section.

Based on the additional information section, the Health Board is applying a 10 day standstill period prior to awarding this contract.

Apartado VI: Información complementaria

VI.3)Información adicional:

Lightfoot has become the Health Board’s partner in developing and supporting scaling change through the use of data in a single exclusive platform which provides a unique offering which is detailed as follows:

1) Lightfoot has extensive technical experience in linking together health system datasets from many different sources to provide a timeseries flow view of the patient journey through the whole health system. This automatically refreshes daily for operational use and would take most organisations many months/years to build this facility/capability;

2) Unique Statistical Process Control (SPC) insights from signalsfromnoise (sfn):

(a) the SPC visualisation of data is different from traditional reporting tools and is the only operational enterprise-wide platform automatically generating and distributing SPC charts and visualised views of cross system patient journeys;

(b) the charts have a unique capability, in that they can provide trended and cyclical views of data which also include predictive analytics;

(c) this allows SPC views of patient flow across departments, organisations and multiple organisations, in one single environment, with a live drill down capability to answer any questions across all of the data sets. This is patented in North America and applied for in Europe.

3) Common analytical platform to Canterbury District Health Board: the HB have developed a learning alliance with Canterbury DHB NZ using Lightfoot’s sfn system, enabling comparison analytics between the different systems, departments, patient journeys and clinical cohorts to inform best practice and opportunities for improvement;

4) Live drilldown and clinical challenge: during playback workshops sfn’s instant drilldown capability allows clinicians to ask and answer live ‘why’ questions without the need for further report writing;

5) Live initiative monitoring: the sfn platform is updated with frequent uploads of data allowing it to become the HB’s initiative, monitoring and tracking tool;

6) Outcomes and quality and safety frameworks: The sfn platform provides the option to link to a Canterbury-style outcomes framework in order to connect the HB’s strategic vision to patient outcomes.

The recent delivery workstreams have enabled the HB to test and experience in a live operational application sfn and the implementation methodology, and would now like to take this wider than the initial work. Due to this requirement and the uniqueness of the platform, a 3 to 5-year partnership is necessary to give the Health Board the time to continue to develop and embed the approach, grow the capability and capacity, so that we can sustain this in the long term.

In addition, there are a number of implications on the Health Board in regards to time, resource and finances if a contract could not be agreed with Lightfoot, these are:

1) Lightfoot’s system and data is their intellectual property and as such, this would not be transferable;

2) The organisation implication in the reinvestment of HB resources to implement this live system again would be highly significant and detrimental to clinical time and would seriously impact the project progress;

3) Financial investment by the HB has been agreed, however, costs would significantly increase if implementation had to be re-engineered.
