Failure to meet practices’ training needs means variable levels of care for patients, and can lead to more hospital admissions, complications and specialist care referrals. The team uses artificial intelligence algorithms to analyse training needs assessments and make individual training recommendations to thousands of HCPs while monitoring uptake saving hours of DSN time analysing records.

The judges were impressed with the use of big data to provide real time training needs analysis, focused on the specific needs of individual populations of patients. The approach really supported value in the delivery of training by identifying specific learning needs.
