We’re looking forward to putting MemorialCare in a much stronger position to leverage its vast information resources for more informed and timely decision-making.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
Health Care DataWorks, Inc. (HCD) is entering into an agreement with MemorialCare Health System of Southern California to provide its KnowledgeEdge™ Enterprise Data Warehouse for a broader view of the health system’s data that will contribute to more informed and timely decision making.
MemorialCare, an integrated health care delivery system based in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA, will rely on HCD’s Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) to aggregate organization-wide data for seamless access to information across multiple operational systems, including clinical, administrative, and financial data. This end-to-end user analysis capability provides an increased level of business intelligence for more informed decisions that can improve quality, reduce costs and enhance the bottom line.
MemorialCare turned to HCD for a business intelligence solution to accelerate its EDW initiative because KnowledgeEdge includes numerous accelerators, including the underlying data model, comprehensive data dictionary, pre-built hospital dashboards and reports and technical expertise. The EDW is particularly beneficial in the new paradigm of health care, where the population health/pay-for-results approach is replacing the fee-for-service model.
“We’re looking forward to putting MemorialCare in a much stronger position to leverage its vast information resources for more informed and timely decision-making,” said Detlev H. (Herb) Smaltz, Health Care DataWorks CEO. “By aggregating and organizing all the data from multiple data-producing systems, MemorialCare’s decision makers will be able to use analytics to impact everything from patient quality and satisfaction to reimbursements.”
