Microsoft PowerApps

Large Healthcare Provider Deployment

Challenge

A large healthcare provider operated a lean 6-sigma quality program that includes regular assessments of inpatient nurse care. They built an ambitious assessment platform using Microsoft PowerApps, SharePoint and multiple Access databases. When a key resource left the company, the healthcare provider could no longer maintain the system. The solution reached a critical point of failure and stopped reporting new information entered by users.  

Solution

The healthcare provider contracted Mobile Mentor to restore the platform to stable operation by removing critical choke-points, adding automation, building a new performance dashboard.   

Outcome

The assessment platform has been expanded to have 14 unique PowerApps collecting data from different clinical functions. The platform has been deployed in 4 more locations with a total of 56 nursing units on the system. Data updates are now received on 2-hour cycles, as opposed to the previous 24 hour delay. The solution leverages Microsoft PowerApps and Flow.
