Southbury, CT (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Practical Data Solutions (PDS) has developed Dashboard Automation Software for Healthcare (DASH), a first in class analyst productivity tool to enable automated reporting across data sets.
As an industry challenged with silos of disparate data, analytical and reporting productivity in healthcare is often lost in manually intensive tasks such as query, cut, paste and repeat.
“PDS continues to raise the bar as the healthcare environment increasingly demands more analytical insight,” says Adam Hamilton, Director of Decision Support at Medical University of South Carolina – MUSC Physicians. “As an industry in great flux, we are constantly being tasked to do more with less, so improving analytical productivity while simultaneously giving us better data transparency is a tremendous achievement. Between what the software does for us and the process we have built around it, we have achieved substantial time and labor savings in our dashboard reporting cycle,” according to Hamilton.
PDS DASH allows analysts to cross-reference varied dimension names from different dictionaries to accommodate cross-system reporting, and it is compatible with any business intelligence (BI) software platform. As a tool developed to improve healthcare analyst efficiency, DASH enables users to create dynamic dashboards from multiple applications without the need for custom programming or complex joins.
“One certainty in healthcare today is change, and as organizations are acquired, merged or implement new source systems, there are often costly challenges in working with data,” according to Russell Hendrickson, President at PDS. “While organizations strive to build enterprise data warehouses and implement BI standards, these lofty objectives typically take time to come to fruition, and DASH bridges a frequent gap during transitional periods.”
