This paper reports on a cohort analytics process that used text mining on data collected from 64 interviews conducted in Queensland Health wards. The focus of the interviews was on implementing a technology. The cohort analytics helped 'normalise' the data view of patient care, and supported the development of a set of rules for the display of patient data in a form that is comprehensible to a range of carers in wards that have differing functional elements. The analytics helped to represent a visual view of the data using a touch screen panel, and the carers, such as doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and pharmacists were able to see and update different domain functionalities so that patient data was accurate and up-to-date. This culminated in efficient patient management, as well as effective generation of reports on bed utility.
