QlikView Gains Momentum As The ‘New Prescription’ For Boosting Cost Management, Productivity, And Medical Outcomes

“The ability to acquire fast and accurate BI is becoming more essential for healthcare providers as they make critical decisions, such as whether to become an accountable-care organization (ACO) or how best to meet the requirements of meaningful use (MU) on schedule,” said Brian Veara, ThedaCare’s Manager of Decision Resources. “QlikView dramatically reduces the time to answer business and clinical questions and it has helped ThedaCare transition from standard static reporting to a truly analytical environment where any information can be rapidly accessed, analyzed and viewed exactly as needed. This capability is especially critical now that we’ve been selected to the ACO pioneer program.”

Leading research firms are also recognizing QlikView’s ability to enable healthcare companies to transform mountains of data into actionable, real-time intelligence. Recently, Frost & Sullivan awarded the QlikView Business Discovery platform with the 2011 North American Technology Innovation Award in Health Data Analytics. Selection is based on several criteria such as innovative element of the product, value-added features and benefits, and increased customer return on investment (ROI). This acknowledgment built on the announcement of QlikView’s overall performance score of 91 out of 100 1 in the August 2011 Business Intelligence report 2 from KLAS, a healthcare-focused research firm.

“Faced with changing payment models, regulations, compliance, and healthcare reform, healthcare executives and clinicians are embracing the idea of using information to their advantage,” said Ed Daihl, CEO, Surgical Information Systems. “Specifically, SIS clients are using analytics in the perioperative space to find actionable information to help improve patient care through outcomes analysis, monitor and report compliance metrics, measure financial performance through accurate case costing, and manage operational efficiency by increasing OR resource utilization.”

Business analysis software provides the capabilities to integrate data from hospital systems and thereby the visibility to deal with critical healthcare operational issues affecting financial performance, safety and quality of patient care, clinical operations, transparency, and resource management. Traditional BI products however require substantial investments in capital, time and IT resources beyond reach of most healthcare facilities. QlikView provides all capabilities of traditional BI and more – with capabilities to efficiently describe, record, quantify, and analyze administrative and patient procedures and quickly adjust data views according to the demands of different, non-technical, end users.
