Getting from data-management to data-driven.

Managing data from a host of PACS/VNA, modalities and healthcare information systems is clearly challenging. Trying to learn something about your organization based on that data can be even more so. When data is confined to proprietary systems, you can’t easily combine it to create a holistic view. And if you need reports from multiple systems, expect long turnaround times.

When systems and data aren’t consolidated, the data can seem to be working against you – not for you. And healthcare leaders are sometimes left second-guessing business decisions. Without centralized access, getting the level of detail needed to make sound decisions is very difficult. But with consolidated access to data, you can run reports that automatically visualize contextual information for quick interpretation and trend analysis. 

Take consolidation to the next level.
Given the industry’s increased financial pressure, imaging leaders need real-time access to financial, clinical and operational data. You may be considering system consolidation for the sake of efficiency and long-term cost savings. But why stop there when you can take your data to a new level, bringing it together to create actionable information?

With predictive and prescriptive analytics solutions, you can gain benefits beyond consolidation and transition from a data-management organization to a data-driven one. You can achieve a new level of enterprise visibility for datasets previously accessible only in local systems. Then you can use your data to collect evidence to point the way to better clinical, financial and operational decisions.

Evidence-based management is showing promise not only for healthcare enterprise management but also for helping imaging groups focus on patient outcomes through enhanced disease surveillance and population health management.

Legacy business intelligence and reporting tools that help answer questions about what has happened in the past aren’t good enough. To combat declining margins, healthcare leaders need solutions that help them look toward the future so they can focus on and prioritize their most valuable opportunities. A predictive and prescriptive analytics solution can help close the gap between knowing what questions to ask and knowing what to do once you have the answers. It can allow you to see opportunities to increase revenues or avoid costs. You can predict how actions you take today will impact your organization tomorrow.

Predictive and prescriptive analytics tools recommend specific actions to take toward achieving objectives, providing a critical, strategic advantage for complex health systems. This level of insight enables you to identify specific actions that can standardize clinical workflows, improve operations and impact your bottom line.

Free users from IT dependence.
Committing IT hours to pulling reports from different viewing systems and multiple PACS doesn’t make financial sense. But with consolidated data, user-friendly, standardized, centralized reports can be developed. And reporting can become a self-service activity. Consolidation also allows you to apply an analytics solution so you can visualize data in ways that make it easier to interpret. This helps to:

  • reveal opportunities to grow your revenue stream
  • enhance clinical quality
  • improve operational efficiency

With the right analytics platform, you’ll have customization opportunities and access to proprietary applications that meet your organization’s unique data needs. Your organization can adapt the system to fit without building a new one from scratch.

Are you ready for freedom?
No more data locked in proprietary systems.
No more specialized reports only IT can run.
No more second-guessing.
