Qlik Enables Australian Government Department of Health to Deliver Critical Public Health Information During Pandemic
SYDNEY, Australia, June 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qlik® today announced that the Australian Government Department of Health is leveraging Qlik’s technology to deliver data analytics capabilities in support of the Department’s reporting of COVID-19 related information to key stakeholders.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic in Australia in early 2020, the Department of Health has been using Qlik to provide health officials a clear perspective on COVID-19 related statistics. Qlik’s data visualisation and analytics solutions underpin COVID-19 public announcements, pandemic incident management and COVID-19 updates on the Department of Health website.
The Department needed a rapid data solution that was external facing, easily adaptable and could support the National Incident Room to provide curated data on a daily basis so as to keep the Australian public informed on the unfolding COVID-19 situation. This meant clear and swift reporting, with no room for error.
Qlik offered an end-to-end solution, allowing Health to join to many disparate datasets quickly and produce a wide range of reporting formats. As soon as the pandemic hit, it took not more than three weeks for a prototype platform to be delivered for the Department of Health. A live public website was available shortly after to provide up-to-date information built to support half million hits a day and up to 5,000 hits a second.
The project was ground-breaking from the start, as the Health team were challenged to develop new and innovative data products for many different audiences with the key guiding principles of accuracy, reliability, availability and consistency, all delivered rapidly.
Qlik solutions were used across the following areas:
Collaboration for success
For its pioneering work, the Australian Government Department of Health was recently presented the “Qlik Excellence in Healthcare Award” at Qlik’s Australia and New Zealand Health & Public Sector Digital Transformation Awards 2021.
“Australia’s approach to the COVID-19 pandemic is well-regarded globally and this can largely be attributed to a well-coordinated and collaborative effort across government, the healthcare sector as well as the private sector that was underpinned by data-driven decision making,” said Charlie Farah, Director of Industry Solutions for Healthcare and Public Sector at Qlik. “This enabled the government to swiftly act and provide clear communication to citizens and State authorities on the rapidly changing situation to help limit the spread of COVID-19 within the community.”
