The Decision Support (DS) department at SSW comprises of two main streams:


1.       Data Management

Data Management is responsible for managing procurement lifecycle data integrity. The team works in collaboration with various departments at SSW, including; Strategic Sourcing, Purchasing, Analytics/BI and Finance as well as our Hospitals to ensure data accuracy, alignment and flow.

2.       Business Intelligence & Analytics

Business Intelligence and Analytics team works closely with many stakeholders at SSW, member and customer hospitals. Through building strong relationships and stakeholder management, the team addresses and supports variety of analytical and reporting needs of its stakeholders. The team is also building a strong and integrated data platform to support interactive reporting and Business Intelligence.

As data is one of SSW’s most valued assets, and used daily across the organization to support evidence based decision making, Decision Support’s goal is to leverage and integrate disparate procurement lifecycle and Supply Chain data sources, and model them into one source of truth in order to enable evidence based decision making, gap analysis to highlight areas of improvement, value analysis to improve processes and increase efficiencies, as well as enable risk assessment capabilities to identify and analyze potential events or processes that may impact patient care at our hospitals.

To date, SSW’s Decision Support department has successfully lead and supported multiple complex ‘Materials Management’ system restructuring and harmonisation initiatives for our Member and Customer hospitals.

In addition, DS department provides variety of services to support internal stakeholders and teams better access quality data, analytics and interactive reporting.
