BI and Analytics Provider Drives Data Based Decisions Across Spectrum of Care

NEW YORK. NY and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2016) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and data integration solutions, today announced that its technology is helping healthcare providers reduce costs, streamline efficiencies and improve care with effective data management. Information Builders is proud to work with leading healthcare providers and partners operating across numerous areas of care and support.

Information Builders' healthcare customers include:

Butler Health System (BHS), a Pennsylvania hospital system with 60 outpatient locations that sees 500,000 outpatient visits, 50,000 emergency department visits and 14,000 admissions each year. Before working with Information Builders, data collection and analysis was not as efficient as desired, which prevented the organization from devoting the time needed to system improvements. Under the leadership of BHS CIO Dr. A. Thomas McGill, the organization worked with Information Builders to create a reporting portal, parameterized reports and InfoAssist™ reporting objects that empower clinicians and administrators to conduct their own analyses. This resulted in qualitative improvements that met government requirements. Additionally, the BHS emergency department reduced its arrival-to-admission and arrival-to-discharge times while it increased patient throughput volumes. Dr. McGill received a 2014 Analytics All Star award from Health Data Management for his role in the initiative.

Memorial Health System (MHS), one of Illinois' leading healthcare organizations, oversees four hospitals across the state and serves hundreds of thousands of patients. MHS was faced with the challenge of improving critical performance goals, overcoming integrity issues and enabling compliance with government regulations. The organization worked with Information Builders' master data management (MDM) technology to create a unified information repository and reporting environment that delivers a single view of patients, providers, and other key business entities. Working with Information Builders gave MHS access to deep reporting and analysis that wasn't previously available to them. Since implementation, the organization has seen accelerated time-to-market and improved accessibility to complete and consistent information to enhance patient care, cost control and compliance. Information Builders has helped MHS create single "golden records" for each patient, which reduced confusion and improved overall care. 

Information Builders works with numerous providers in the healthcare space in addition to BHS and MHS, including Quinte Health Care, Allegiance Health System and others.
