Lenexa, KS (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
In order to receive Medicare and Medicaid incentives, there is growing pressure on healthcare organizations to demonstrate that they are meaningfully using their EMR systems. Sagacious Consultants, a consulting firm focused on EMR implementations, is launching a new service, Sagacious Analytics, to help hospitals improve reporting and make better use of their EMR data, so they can more accurately measure their performance.
“Our approach to Analytics is centered on industry best standards and leveraging the tools healthcare organizations already have,” said Melinda Cleaver, Director of Sagacious Analytics. “As the industry moves increasingly toward an integrated data system, hospitals need support from experts who have real-world experience and knowledge of all the data, tools, and processes to make these projects successful.”
Sagacious Analytics employs a variety of assessment tools, training, BI project management, and BI staff extension solutions to help educate staff, improve revenue numbers, and improve clinical measures. The Analytics team assesses clients’ current progress and implements IT industry standard tools and processes to help them use best practices for all of their reporting, including:
- Specifications document management
- Knowledge management
- Change control
- Data lineage tracking
- Reporting backlog reduction
- Crystal and SQL/Oracle code management
- Data integrity improvement
“Sagacious Consultants can help healthcare organizations create a solid foundation for their Business Intelligence departments. Most reporting shops are simply seeking a deeper understanding of the EMR model—better interpretation of requests and the ability to find the data quicker and to validate results in Hyperspace,” said Cleaver.
Clients who use the Sagacious Analytics service have the potential to increase their report request queue throughput, achieve more consistent revenue numbers, and be better prepared for their next maturity assessment. They’re also more likely to receive increased payments from Medicare and Medicaid.
The Sagacious Analytics team consists of 11 members. Collectively, they have experience at 54 healthcare organizations and have 48 Epic certifications, 18 of which are Clarity reporting certifications. To find out more about Sagacious Analytics, go to http://www.SagaciousConsultants.com/analytics.
