"Analytics in healthcare – particularly those in revenue cycle reporting and quality reporting – is becoming increasingly important," said Paul Constantino, director, Healthcare Solutions, Datawatch. "Analysts consistently find that most of the decisions within a healthcare organization can be made with the data they currently possess. For healthcare, this data is typically available through existing financial and clinical systems. The issue is this data needs to be extracted, integrated and transformed into information in formats that support effective analysis, and served up in easy to use executive dashboards that provide information for visibility and control. This is the value the Monarch Report Analytics platform can provide. "This partnership will deliver a combined solution of the most widely used report analytics solution with a well-respected thought leader in healthcare consulting services," continued Constantino.
