Using Excel for collecting information and signposting and general engagement data

Tuesday 9th August, 2022 - 10:30 to 11:30

About this event

A number of Healthwatch use Excel to collect, analyse and report on their data. Some use various functions to automatically update reports for different stakeholders.

Some Healthwatch are using Power Bi for data visualisation, including more than one data set – such as combining Healthwatch data for ICS purposes.

With the retirement of Civi, some Healthwatch are considering an Excel solution.

Healthwatch England would like to draw on the learning of Healthwatch to see if we can provide a template drawing on the best and most suitable features.
