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.
Differentiating itself from some of the big-name BI players who offer their products to many industries or who also sell other kinds of non BI-related enterprise software, Humedica focuses exclusively on business intelligence and analytics software for the healthcare industry. That includes hospitals and health systems as well as ambulatory care providers and life sciences companies.
Humedica's MinedShare products--which are offered via a software-as-a-service model--include a population health dashboard and predictive health analytics for chronic health failure patients.
The company says its longitudinal clinical data analysis provides insights into the sequence of care for defined patient groups, such as those with specific diseases or chronic conditions. Through its analytics, the MinedShare products also help users address topics such as identifying patients at high risk for preventable complications and helping organizations reduce hospital re-admissions.
