Information Builders sells BI software tools to many industries. For healthcare providers, the company's BI tools, which include WebFocus, offer insights that can boost decision support to improve quality of care, increase patient satisfaction, and operate more efficiently.

The company says its "data intelligence, integration, and integrity" tools can also help providers "achieve Meaningful Use, and transform into accountable care organizations by turning financial, clinical, and administrative data into information that clinicians, staff, and administrators need for evidence-based decision-making."

The offering includes tools for integrated health intelligence and performance management that allow organizations to improve labor productivity, asset utilization, and supply-chain costs. The tools can help healthcare leaders view key performance indicators across service lines and departments to improve workflow and coordination of care.

Hospitals and medical practices can also use these tools to improve financial management and reporting, budgeting, and planning, and to enable physician and patient profiling, market share analytics, and clinical informatics.
