Now available: full automation with the Planner API
15/11/2013by Rob Findlay
One of the most popular requests we’ve been hearing is:
“I like the way Gooroo Planner does those week-by-week planning profiles. But now I want to monitor progress against them. I want to know:
- Is activity keeping up with the seasonal plan?
- Is demand growing faster than we expected?
- Is the waiting list the right size for this time of year?
I want to update all of this every week. I want to be able to share it easily with operational colleagues. And I don’t want to spend a lot of time doing it. Can you get Gooroo to do that for me?”
The answer is yes, and it’s available now.
This week the Planner API went “live” on our website. So now your computer system can access Gooroo Planner directly, any time, without any human intervention. It sends over a standard dataset, and gets back all the plans and week-by-week profiles for every service in the hospital. So it can drop them right into your business intelligence (BI) dashboards, where everyone can see them and track progress against them.
That means every BI user in your organisation gets the benefit of up-to-date planning and weekly profiles, including demand, capacity, activity and waits, without even having to log into Gooroo. In fact they don’t even need to have heard of Gooroo. It’s all just there.
The Planner API has another trick up its sleeve too: it can automatically update all your Gooroo users with the latest data. Whenever your system calls the API, it can tell it to share the report it creates with a list of recipients, and that report just drops automatically into their Gooroo accounts.
If you are technically-minded you can see exactly how it all works on the Planner API web page (or look at a worked example). For the rest of you, you just need to know that this is absolutely standard technology that integrates easily with existing data warehouse and BI software.
