The performance measures providers need in their line of sight continues to increase. Frequently, the data resides in disparate systems, requiring providers to waste valuable time navigating multiple systems, and analysts to spend days each month manually creating reports. To ease this burden, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center leveraged the EDW to construct a provider metrics analytics application, integrating disparate source data into one easy to use application.
16 service line data sets integrated into the application.
500-hour savings in development time, while achieving marked improvement in data availability.
11 strategic improvement goals established – new insights gained from increased data accessibility illuminated opportunities for improvement.
