Health Intelligence Using Splunk

Converging Data

Real-time data to deliver more efficient healthcare

A powerful, easy-to-use business intelligence tool that analyses real-time data from multiple sources - enabling managers to run more efficient healthcare services.

Key facts

  • Pulls data from multiple sources to give a real-time, end-to-end view of a healthcare service
  • Platform-agnostic and quick to install (fast time to value)
  • Combines HL7 data with other data to give a complete picture
  • Based on an internationally-recognised big data platform (Splunk); proven track record with Australian government’s e-health programme
  • Seeking customers in UK hospital trusts and NHS organisations


NHS organisations are awash with data - but how many have a real-time, end-to-end view of what is happening with their services?

Delays in an A&E department, for example, may not be the result of a shortage of frontline resources but due to issues further down the care pathway, for example a lack of beds.

Converging Data solves the problem - with a secure, easy-to-use solution that can combine and analyse structured and unstructured data from multiple sources, including but not limited to HL7 data.

It gives healthcare managers a real-time view of what is happening across a service, via dashboards that can track anything from admissions and discharges to transfers of patients between wards and services.

Unlike other business intelligence tools, our approach is platform-agnostic and does not take your data outside your organisation.  It can also handle requests ‘on the fly’ and does not need to have questions pre-programmed into it.


How we will make a difference

We will make it easy for health service managers to understand what is happening in their services by bringing together data they already hold into a single, powerful business intelligence tool. Real-time monitoring enables earlier intervention, better use of resources and better care.

Our credentials

The business is founded by two former NHS health informatics professionals with a proven, senior track record. Our solution is based on the internationally-used big data platform, Splunk, and is already being used to support the Australian Government’s NEHTA e-health programme.
