HCD’s KnowledgeEdge solution empowers healthcare executives with sound, insightful data to effectively manage their strategic goals, and helps them meet the challenges of cutting costs, improving patient satisfaction and delivering high-value care.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) March 27, 2015
The 2015 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition brings together more than 38,000 healthcare IT professionals, decision-makers, and thought leaders from around the world to discuss the industry’s most critical issues. Health Care DataWorks (HCD) is pleased to participate in this premiere health IT event again this year. HCD will feature its KnowledgeEdge™ Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) in booth 8218 at HIMSS15 April 12 – 16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
“HIMSS is dedicated to improving healthcare quality, safety and cost-effectiveness through the best use of IT and management systems,” said Dr. Jyoti Kamal, HCD’s Chief Data Scientist. “The organization’s annual conference, the most comprehensive and authoritative knowledge event in healthcare IT today, is the ideal setting to showcase HCD’s KnowledgeEdge solution. Its innovative EDW empowers healthcare executives with sound, insightful data to effectively manage their strategic goals, and helps them meet the challenges of cutting costs, improving patient satisfaction and delivering high-value care.”
HCD's innovative KnowledgeEdge Dynamic Modeling™, technology built in to our KnowledgeEdge EDW, will be featured at this year’s HIMSS. It integrates large datasets from multiple sources, from any format, into one consolidated model at lightning-fast processing speeds. This new technology delivers the machinery for smart data capture and data preparation, providing flexible, robust deliverables that can be implemented in modules or across the enterprise.
HCD will also roll out its new KnowledgePacks, pre-built embedded analytics in KnowledgeEdge that seamlessly integrate data across financial, clinical and operational systems and provide transparency into complex data sets. The KnowledgePacks address sixteen specific areas in hospitals and health care systems, and range from the emergency and operating rooms to patient-related analyses like length of stay and satisfaction.
“The dashboards included in the KnowledgePacks will save organizations inordinate amounts of time and resources in manually collecting data to report on simple metrics that are often months behind,” Dr. Kamal noted. “They give organizations the ability to monitor key performance measures, allowing them to proactively take actions that can alter outcomes.”
As part of HIMSS15’s vast educational offerings, HCD client Cedars-Sinai Health System will present a round table discussion, "BI/Analytics and Stage 7: How Is It We’re Just Getting Started?," co-chaired by Cedars-Sinai’s CIO, Darren Dworkin and healthcare IT industry analyst, David Garets. The session will be held at 10:00 a.m. on April 13 in Room S403. Topics for discussion will include the role BI/analytics plays in achieving HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 status, what comes next for organizations that earn this designation, and the impact of culture and change management in getting value from BI/analytics and EHR investments.
“To reach Stage 7, a hospital or health system must prove they are using data warehousing and mining techniques to effectively capture and analyze data to use in improving their performance, quality of care and patient safety,” said Garets. “In the case of Cedars-Sinai, the implementation of HCD’s EDW was a significant factor in their attainment of Stage 7.”
