A rapid evaluation by Erica Wirrmann Gadsby, Linda Jenkins, Stephen Peckham
In November 2012, the Centre for Health Services Studies at the University of Kent was commissioned by NHS Kent and Medway to conduct a rapid (23 day) appraisal of the SHREWD system and the way it was currently operating across Kent and Medway. SHREWD – Single Health Resilience Early Warning Database – is an “online, real-time early warning and decision support tool”, developed by Transforming Systems (a human systems focused software development company) in collaboration with NHS Kent and Medway, partners within the Medway health system, and the University of Greenwich, with financial support from the South East Coast Strategic Health Authority. It is a system designed to be accessed and updated by partners within a local health system in order to share ‘system critical’ information.
