Healthcare Data Warehousing

A Data Warehouse Solution Should Provide Easy Access to Healthcare Data

By | Blog, What's New | No Comments
The healthcare industry has been facing significant disruption in recent years, due largely to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). ACA has changed the landscape in how medical records are maintained. Many healthcare providers, especially smaller ones, had not previously implemented an electronic medical records system when ACA was first enacted. With the implementation of the ACA, the role of IT in healthcare organizations has changed significantly.  Meeting reporting deadlines has required the IT organization in healthcare to move quickly to provide easy access to data. Now that most providers are using Electronic Medical Records (EMR), the healthcare industry is in a good position for the next wave in healthcare IT. EMR has set the stage to allow healthcare systems to have greater visibility into the business and to identify opportunities for improvement across the spectrum of patient care delivery. This is made possible through a Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence (BI) solution. Compelling Benefits of a Data Warehouse and BI Solution There are many advantages to implementing a data warehouse and BI solution.
