Innovative fCast™ application improves waiting lists

MedModus experts in healthcare business intelligence and performance improvement

Dublin, Ireland July 19, 2017 – MedModus, a leading provider of Business Intelligence and Performance Improvement solutions for the healthcare sector, has today announced the launch of their innovative fCast™ application to complement their CareAnalytics BI platform. fCast™ standardises and simplifies the process of waiting list forecasting and capacity planning across hospitals, specialties and clinicians.

fCast™ automatically generates waiting list forecasts by patient type, specialty and clinician. An intuitive interface allows users to easily change activity assumptions. The application also provides an initiatives grid for planning the impact of waiting list initiatives such as outsourcing, new consultants, insourcing, and validation. The interface encourages the treatment of longer waiters and provides users with infotips relating to scheduling and activity effectiveness. With fCast’s dynamic dashboard visualizations, hospitals will now have a flexible tool to commit forecasts to a database and observe actual vs. forecast performance over time. Importantly, fCast™ enables the involvement of clinicians in the capacity planning process and brings clarity and focus to hospital’s waiting list improvement efforts.

Déaglán MagFhloinn, chief executive officer at MedModus, commented, “Growing hospital waiting lists are a major problem in many countries. fCast™ is a powerful waiting list forecasting and capacity planning application that automates the complex process of forecasting across multiple hospitals, specialties and doctors. It brings new clarity to waiting list improvement efforts and improves collaboration between clinicians and managers in addressing waiting list challenges”.
