The Lord Carter Report looks at improving productivity and making efficiency savings in the NHS. It highlights the importance of data quality in producing accurate metrics, and notes that as the national workforce solution - ESR can play a critical role for organisations when implementing its recommendations. Particularly it states that ‘Trusts must get a tighter grip of their coding to the ESR database and use the data in their daily management of staff’ and cited ESR as an ‘enabler’ by providing workforce information and functionality.
ESR is a data rich environment, providing a vast range of quality workforce information across the whole workforce solution to employees, managers, and organisations, providing a full hire to retire solution presented in a variety of forms to suit the user. Whether that’s provided through the ESR portal and its portlets as targeted pre-analysed information to assist with managing compliance, to view pay and pension information for the employee, to help manage annual leave or appraisals for people managers, or through the Business Intelligence tool to understand the sickness level and turnover rates at an organisation level; it is all available to you at no cost to the organisation.
As well as the ability to view, and if necessary manipulate information, to monitor and measure performance either as a manager or from a whole organisation’s perspective, the functionality built around the information is designed to aid the user to understand its relevance and meaning. It is also designed to assist the user in taking action, such as improving training compliance for an employee, or adjusting the organisation’s education offering to meet the training demands of staff.
The Five Year Forward View sets out a clear direction for the NHS; it understands the world is changing, stating ‘the NHS needs to adapt to take advantage of the opportunities that science and technology offer patients, carers and those who serve them’. ESR is centrally funded technology; the national workforce management solution, developed uniquely for the NHS by the NHS. Are you fully utilising this technology and gaining optimal efficiencies?
This interactive tool will help you understand how ESR can provide you, your teams, your managers and your employees with right information at the right time unique to the user.
