The Challenge

Productive Primary Care returned to VIX to deliver a new product which would provide general practice and commissioners with the information they need to make informed decisions across health communities. Helping them plan services and provide patients with access to timely care. Some of this information was present at a practice level in the Doctor First web application, but this new proposal required the collation of multiple data sources on a variety of metrics and timelines, along with scaling the predictive models to map patient behaviour across entire health communities.

VIX had the task of taking the discovery stage provided by Productive Primary Care, and the analytical insights from their existing web tool, and make them scale across health communities. All whilst being approachable to practice managers and commissioners. VIX worked with the productive primary care team to develop a fully functional product that had to be ready for market within 3 months.

Our Approach

VIX decoupled the intelligence engine from the Doctor First web application so that both systems could benefit from the improvements made to the predictive model. Any improvements made to the algorithms would propagate into each individual system. This reduced the time to market and allowed VIX to allocate resources and time to areas where the most value could be added.

VIX built an interactive insights dashboard which gave Productive Primary Care and the users of the system the ability to draw out insights from complex data patterns. Combined with their existing web tool, this formed an ecosystem where each tool was separated but allowed for value to flow between them. Due to the nature of some of the insights and their flexibility, VIX made the components of the tool adaptable over time. This meant that popular insights could be made available to users over time, building on the the value provided long after the work was concluded.
