PARTNERSHIP SIGNED WITH USA COMPANY CQInsights
Data Dissect is excited to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with CQInsights Inc, the US-based Global frontrunner in the development and implementation of learning health care systems.
Dr. Bruce Ramshaw, one of the Managing Partners of CQInsights, is a recognised world expert in learning health care systems and an advocate for patient centred medicine.
Dr Ramshaw says: “We are very excited to collaborate with Data Dissect as it allows us to expand our value-based continuous quality improvement model in Australia.
“We’ve learned that the problem of improving patient outcomes and lowering costs is not unique to the United States, it is a global problem,” he ended.
This exciting development allows Australian clinicians and researchers to access the years of experience and expertise that
Dr. Ramshaw and his partners, Remi Forman and Briana Alvoid-Preston, bring to this pivotal collaboration.
Data Dissect will gain further insight into the use of learning health care systems to improve the patient journey through the hospital systems – an area that Dr. Ramshaw has been at the forefront for many years.
The Adelaide company’s vision is for this collaboration to promote the benefits of value-based clinical quality improvement to healthcare institutions and clinical teams around Australia.
“Data Dissect is pleased to bring the insights and expertise of Dr Bruce Ramshaw to Australian clinicians.
Bruce is a leading figure in the learning health care system community and his contribution to the development of this field in Australia is timely” says Chairman of Data Dissect, Professor Peter Hewett.
Importantly, the collaboration will enable an amalgamation of resources from each company to provide insights such as data visualisation and analysis for Australian healthcare institutions and clinical teams.

GROUND-BREAKING SOLUTION FOUND TO IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES AND LOWER HEALTHCARE COSTS
Adelaide based medical technology company, Data Dissect, has devised a software solution solely focused on improving patient care and lowering the cost of that care by applying learning health care systems to patient data.
Data Dissect designs and develops software to assemble, analyse and interpret medical and financial data. This enables health professionals across the treatment team to improve patient outcomes and reduces the cost of healthcare in hospitals.
Development of a patient-learning health care system that enables analysis of treatment episodes to feedback into a patient care algorithm is a powerful tool. The Data Dissect addresses issues such as: Why is the average length of stay of patients at our hospital, undergoing a particular procedure, significantly longer than the national benchmark”?
THE LEARNING HEALTHCARE SYSTEM WAY
With Data Dissect, clinicians and health researchers are now able to gather detailed information specific to any health condition in a fraction of the time when compared to current data collection processes.
The idea arose for founder and surgeon, Dr Sanjeev Khurana through the frustration that he shared with many clinical colleagues in not having access to often expensive resources required to perform routine quality control audits in their everyday practice.
This set Sanjeev on the path to creating Data Dissect, a healthcare system in which knowledge generation processes are embedded in daily practice to produce continual improvement in care – also known as a Learning Healthcare System.
Data Dissect has been successfully deployed in South Australia where it has generated a 22 per cent reduction in hospital stay for children with complicated appendicitis.
“As a senior clinician who has been exposed to the problems around data collection in health and the power of modern data science, I am driven by the urgent need to fill this huge gap in the healthcare system,” says Sanjeev. “The Data Dissect platform is an affordable tool that works for clinicians and researchers in their quest for capturing clean data.”
Sanjeev joined The Accelerator in 2019 to learn what it takes to be successful in creating a MedTech startup and to connect with a supportive network of people and companies.
Delivered by the MedTech Actuator, the 15-month, industry-led, venture-backed program aggressively funds and accelerates early-stage medical, health and biological technology startups. The MedTech Actuator works alongside venture capital partner Artesian to support startups on their journey.
Since coming on board with The Accelerator, Data Dissect have raised funds and generated a proof of concept and product validation.
“I highly recommend The Accelerator to MedTech entrepreneurs,” says Sanjeev, “knowing what we know now, it is critical for success.”
