NEW YORK and ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the 2017 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition, Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, data integrity, and integration solutions, announced the launch of Omni-HealthData Insights. The product was developed in partnership with St. Luke's University Health Network, a non-profit, regional, fully integrated, nationally recognized network providing services at seven hospitals and more than 200 sites in counties throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. It has been designed from the ground up, by health professionals for health professionals, to achieve the quadruple aim of enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, reducing costs, and improving the work life of healthcare providers.
Omni-HealthData Insights provides a number of highly interactive, business-focused, out-of-the-box information applications – 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.
Omni-HealthData Insights is built on top of Omni-HealthData (Provider Edition), a powerful information management platform designed specifically for healthcare providers, which integrates and harmonizes the data used in the applications. It includes a prebuilt 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. Omni-HealthData also comes equipped with a number of pre-engineered, powerful, state-of-the-art processes for data quality, data mastering, and data integration. This saves customers time and money, and enables them to start getting valuable cross-organizational benefits in weeks rather than months or years. Omni-HealthData Insights snaps on to Omni-HealthData to deliver value immediately.
Mary Jane McKeever, vice president, Finance, St. Luke's University Health Network said:
"St. Luke's University Health Network is pleased to have selected Information Builders to implement its network-wide healthcare enterprise data warehouse (EDW). The EDW, and a large suite of analytical applications, were brought on-line in record time. The EDW contains our most important data assets and provides us with a patient-centered view of our population with the ability to measure clinical and business performance with great precision, while also enabling targeted patient outreach. We are pleased to take our partnership with Information Builders to the next level by making these applications available to other healthcare organizations."
Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders said:
"With healthcare evolving to a value-based payment system, healthcare providers need to drive down costs and improve utilization. At the same time, it's essential that healthcare providers deliver high-quality care and improve upon any patient satisfaction issues. Omni-HealthData Insights addresses these equally vital requirements, by arming all business users with consumable access to critical information. Organizations can obtain a unified view of data from different IT systems, leverage that data more effectively and apply insights to achieve the quadruple aim. St. Luke's was indispensable in bringing Omni-HealthData Insights to the market, and we look forward to helping more healthcare organizations obtain value from the partnership."
