UK Healthcare User Group

March 2016 Previous month Next month

Hi everyone,


Thank you to the 110+ people who attended the Tableau Healthcare User Group in Basingstoke yesterday (22nd March 2016); I have deliberately left out the UK bit of the User Group as we were incredibly lucky to have Jonas and Jonas not only attend from Denmark but also present their Tableau experience to the group. Feedback from the day has been incredibly positive and it's great to hear so many people left the day feeling inspired by the experience of others and energised to try new approaches and techniques in their use of Tableau (obviously helped by seeing the amazing viz in viz demonstration by Alex Ross!).


As promised the content from the user group will be shared with everyone who attended and those of you who couldn't but have taken the time to register for our online Tableau online community page.


The following content is attached to this blog:


- Agenda

- Viz : Where attendees came from and which organisations attended

- Slide deck : Paul Champkin - Tableau at Unilever

- Slide deck : Adrian Downing - Data Driven Organisation Readiness

- User engagement examples : Simon Beaumont - Release notes, User support events, Fabulous Friday example (celebtrating success and positive performance in Tableau)


The following content will be attached to an additional blog due to the number of attachments


- Viz : Competition entries, Marcela Janowska (winner) and then in no particular order Tom Dewar, Kerri O'Connell and Peter Wong.


The following content will be uploaded shortly:


- Slide deck : Jonas Eskildsen Sorenson - Tableau in Denmark (Region Midtjylland)

- Slide deck : Alex Ross - Tableau 9 through 9.3

- Slde deck : Helen Adams - Tableau in Wales


I am sure everyone who attended would join me in thanking Adrian (Concentra), Rory (Tableau) and all of their colleagues who helped make the day so enjoyable; I look forward to seeing many of you at Tableau On Tour in London on the 13th, 14th and 15th of June.



I thought you might find a couple of webinar's useful as a follow up to our user group yesterday:


- Digital Health Network (Presented on Friday 18th March 2016 at 12:30) : How Tableau has transformed the way Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust uses data within 6 months (Slides attached, web link of the recording to come)


- Tableau hosted webinar (Wednesday 27th Aprul 2016 at 14:00 BST) : Creating a Data-Driven Healthcare Organisation


I hope you enjoy the content.



Hi everyone,


At the Tableau UK Healthcare User Group on 22nd March 2016 we provided you with a dummy healthcare data set as part of a competition for all attendees to see who could make the most impressive viz.


In total we had 4 entries; Marcela Janowksa, Kerri O'Connell, Tom Dewar and Peter Wong.


Thanks to the generosity of Concentra, Marcela Janowska, won a ticket to Tableau on Tour in London in recognition of the great viz she created.


Attached to this blog are the 4 entries made to the competition, feel free to download the packaged workbook and see for yourself how each entry approached the task.
