NHS England has deployed Smartsheet‘s enterprise platform to accelerate its digital-first primary care initiatives in its North-West region.
The platform is helping simplify some 87 projects with 40 different project owner-managers, Smartsheet said in an announcement.
“We can identify the situation in real time, make the necessary adjustments, and stay on track,” Cooper says. “The simplicity of Smartsheet made it easy for all of our project managers to on-board and understand the solution immediately.”
According to Smartsheet, the platform enables the NHS region to ditch Excel and PowerPoint, reducing manual tasks while eliminating siloed processes and streamlining its digital transformation.
“With greater accuracy, their team was able to mitigate risk more effectively and in return drive more positive outcomes for their patients,” Russ said.
According to Smartsheet, the team previously used Excel spreadsheets to manage projects and capture data and PowerPoint to report on success metrics.
With Excel and PowerPoint, those tasks had proven “extremely labour-intensive” with sometimes “inaccurate” results, the vendor said.
