11 BI Tools To Analyze Healthcare Operations
May 25, 2012 09:00 AM Although clinical decision support systems remain the rock stars in many large hospitals and group practices, let's not forget the need to analyze operational, financial, and quality control data.
The Pandora suite of modular intelligence software from Omnicell allows healthcare organizations to analyze medication and supply distribution throughout a hospital. The Pandora analytics tool assists healthcare organizations with drug diversion prevention, regulatory compliance, and inventory optimization.
Pandora can also customize reports to fit each healthcare provider's unique environments and needs. Confidential or sensitive patient and drug usage data stay in servers within a hospital's data center.
The software can help providers prioritize action items for compliance, lowering costs and addressing operational issues. The tools can also help track costs per patient visit or case. For clinical operations, the software can be used to identify suspicious activity, inform nursing staff about cancelled medication transactions, and track improvements based on actions taken.
Pandora's My Views and My To Do Lists enable pharmacists and nurse managers to filter content to their areas of focus.
