Information Builders, St. Luke’s University Health Network team up for analytics platform
Information Builders, a data analytics and integration technology vendor, unveiled at HIMSS17 Omni-HealthData Insights, a new analytics product developed in partnership with the seven-hospital St. Luke’s University Health Network. The platform has been designed to enhance the patient experience, improve population health cut costs and improve the work life of healthcare providers, the vendor said.
Omni-HealthData Insights provides a number of interactive, business-focused information applications, what the vendor calls InfoApps. The initial release of Omni-HealthData Insights concentrates on four high-priority subjects: physician practice management, quality and patient safety, hospital patient experience and hospital performance. Additional subjects are planned for release later in 2017, the vendor said.
Omni-HealthData Insights is built on top of the Patient Edition of the vendor’s Omni-HealthData platform, which is designed specifically for healthcare providers and integrates and harmonizes the data used in the applications. The platform includes a pre-built data model that encompasses inpatient and ambulatory clinical data, as well as administrative, financial, human resources, patient, physician and facility subjects, along with many others, the vendor said.
The Omni-HealthData platform also comes with a number of pre-engineered processes for data quality, data mastering and data integration designed to save clients time and money and enable them to start getting cross-organizational benefits in weeks rather than months or years, the vendor said. Omni-HealthData Insights “snaps” onto Omni-HealthData, the vendor added.
“With healthcare evolving to a value-based payment system, healthcare providers need to drive down costs and improve utilization,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “At the same time, it’s essential that healthcare providers deliver high-quality care and improve upon any patient satisfaction issues.”
