Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust employ around 6,000 staff who deliver compassionate care from their two hospitals, Calderdale Royal Hospital, and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary as well as in community sites, health-centres, and patients’ homes.
Foundation trusts provide the core health services needed for their community but are also free to invest quickly in response to the challenges they face in striving to deliver the best possible patient outcomes.
Calderdale and Huddersfield Trust was under pressure to provide more detailed and accurate reporting to NHSi, but also found it cumbersome, time-consuming and extremely challenging to budget and forecast due to spreadsheet laden processes. Different divisions would budget at a different granularity and use different assumptions making consolidating budgets and consistent reporting problematic and tedious.
"By using the NHS Planning Template everyone is now focused on future state rather than just explaining past expenditure. All our budget holders have greater visibility."
Our team implemented Qubix's Q.health Planning and Budgeting solution based on Oracle EPM Cloud Planning. Moreover, this engagement used our Journey to Cloud methodology to achieve their finance transformation objectives - a best practice approach that combines our deep industry and technical expertise to design, implement and manage your migration to the cloud.
"We can now report at a plan, actual and forecast level which drives better insight. We also now have a significantly streamlined business planning and budgeting process, which saves significant time."
Why did CHT choose Qubix?
" Working with our partner Qubix, we have delivered a seamless and automated integration between Q.health Planning and Oracle Fusion Financials using Qubix Cloudbridge. This streamlines the flow of actuals and forecast data, as well as simplified meta-data management. "
