Premier healthcare alliance is a performance improvement alliance of more than 2,700 U.S. hospitals and 90,000 other sites. Owned by hospitals, health systems and other providers, its mission is to promote high-quality, cost-effective care via a leading healthcare purchasing network and the nation’s largest clinical, financial and outcomes database. The organization also develops and hosts a number of applications to help members improve their performance. Premier healthcare alliance needed faster, more accurate feedback on how its members were interacting with these applications in order to improve decision making related to further product development.
Premier chose the BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC) BMC End User Experience Management solution because it effectively and efficiently captures application performance data that provides visibility into the actual user experience.
“When I saw how this resource sits on the network and captures all the data I need, I was impressed,” said Rene Falzarano, lead engineer for web analytics at Premier. “It really hit me that a solution like this is the only way one person can possibly cope with managing a dozen or more applications like I have to do.”
Falzarano added, “We can filter in a variety of ways. We have tremendous flexibility in specifying what data is collected.”The ChallengePremier needed to collect application performance data that reflected end user behavior, such as page visits and navigation, in order to improve user satisfaction and identify areas where users were having issues.
