The National Treatment Purchase Fund (NTPF) is an Irish government body which was established to decrease waiting lists in the Irish public healthcare system. The NTPF pays for public patients to obtain treatment in private hospitals in Ireland or abroad. In carrying out its functions, the NTPF works closely with the Department of Health, the HSE, acute public hospitals and private nursing homes across the health system.
NTPF required a modern Business Intelligence solution to analyse waiting list data. They needed a system which could provide instant insights to ensure waiting list targets were tracked and achieved, assist in improving chronological scheduling and provide an accurate breakdown of the demand for hospital services.
