Ten things you need to know about Atmolytics

8 February 2018


Did you know that our analytics platform is 100% self-service and enables you to undertake in-depth data exploration, visualisation, benchmarking and reporting? Here are the top ten things you need to know about Atmolytics.

1. What is Atmolytics?

Atmolytics is our unique devolved analytics platform. It's 100% self-service and enables anyone working in the care system to undertake in-depth data exploration, visualisation, benchmarking and reporting.

2. Who is Atmolytics for?

Anybody who wants to make a difference in health or social care. The platform has been developed by people with decades of experience in the sector. The apps cover the most common report types used in medical or clinical research, as well as performance and business analysis. There is also the ability to import custom report types, meaning any type of analysis is possible. The intuitive user interface means that clinicians, social care managers and any other operational staff members can create reports and explore data without the need for technical knowledge or database interrogation.

3. What makes it different to other analytics platforms?

The unique way in which the data is coded within the database is what makes Atmolytics such a powerful data discovery tool. The same data from multiple sources is represented in the same way, so that the user can see all answers from a single operation. This, paired with a dynamic and minimalist user interface, makes data discovery simple and easy for non-technical users to create outputs they have not been able to before.

4. Who is currently using it?

Local authorities in England are using Atmolytics for social care assessment and budgetary information. CCGs are also discovering insights into their clients who are eligible for Continuing Healthcare, or have long-term conditions. Several research institutions across the European Union are harnessing the platform for research purposes, with diverse datasets covering diagnoses, treatments, public health and much more. In the United States, Imosphere has partnered with data ecosystem specialists, Clearsense, to deliver Atmolytics to universities in California and medical colleges in Tennessee, taking in millions of records on clinical diagnoses of patients.

5. What types of data can it support?

All types of data are welcome. We have specifically designed the system to support the operations and cohort discovery in health and social care environments. Atmolytics can happily handle data from critical care, clinical care, tumour registries, clinical trials, social care... the possibilities are endless.

6. What if I want to add more datasets?

You can... easily! Adding datasets has never been easier. With the Atmolytics approach, you won't have to rewrite the entire database from scratch. Simply append the new datasets to the existing 'staging database'. Here, the new items will be coded in the same way the initial data was. Automatically generated scripts will do the rest, meaning all records can be seamlessly searched and filtered, as if they were always there.

7. Does it scale?

Yes. Consider the components that make up Atmolytics as building blocks. The blocks can be slotted together to make the system as small or as large as you wish. As other organisations, hospitals and departments join, we can grow the system as required.

8. What kind of problems has it helped solve?

Atmolytics can be used for any number of everyday tasks as well as providing a 'systemwide' view of the service user journey. Simple examples include tracking whether process or performance standards are being met; monitoring satisfaction and change in quality of life; or identifying the characteristics of service users who fail to attend appointments or patients who need screening for diabetes or COPD. Social care examples include seeing whether personal budget expenditure is in line with the service user's estimated budget or support plan; or identifying those people who are caring for a relative or friend with social care needs but are at high risk of their situation breaking down, with a view to avoiding costly emergency placements in residential care. Researchers can identify complex cohorts speedily and explore large datasets highly efficiently.

9. How much training do users need?

Due to the intuitive and minimalist interface, users do not need extensive training before they are able to create their very own reports. A brief introduction to the main features of the system has been all it takes for clinicians, social care managers, researchers or business performance managers to perform the required functions. A brief introduction to the system administration, along with easy-to-interpret supporting documentation, is all that system managers will need.

10. What ongoing support and development do you provide?

Atmolytics is designed to minimise the ongoing support overhead for your organisation. Imosphere typically provide second and third line support once your Atmolytics environment is established. However, this can be adapted to suit your requirements.
