Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Decent Hill Publishers, LLC is pleased to formally announce the launch of a new subsidiary, Health Data Intelligence (HDI). HDI is a healthcare business intelligence and data analytics company providing a fresh new approach to the way hospitals and providers make sense of their clinical and financial data. HDI seeks to simplify and, in the process, revolutionize the way healthcare organizations understand and use their publicly reported clinical and financial metrics as well as data sets stored in their siloed internal systems. HDI is led by seasoned healthcare veterans with well over three decades of combined direct, hands-on experience in healthcare data analytics and clinical decision support systems. Clients of HDI will be able to immediately benefit from the expert support and experience that stand behind the company.
HDI’s flagship product is CarePlan, a vibrant, interactive, cloud-based dashboard suite that incorporates 10 pre-built dashboards, 75+ individual reports, and well over 100 unique analytic views. All dashboards come pre-loaded with the most up to date clinical and financial data pulled from CMS databases and other public sources on more than 5,000 hospitals across the US, allowing any hospital or health system to start serious analysis of its clinical and financial performance immediately with absolutely no need to submit any data to HDI. Media organizations now have access to the most comprehensive database of publicly-reported data and metrics for health-related reporting and news coverage.
Over a period of more than 12 months, HDI’s technical staff and subject matter experts worked to normalize much of the data sets available from CMS’s data repositories at data.medicare.gov, data.cms.gov, and other public sources going all the way back to 2005 and transformed that data into a highly structured and conformed dataset accessible from one central, secure, cloud-based database. Utilizing Tableau’s well-regarded visualization engine, our group of experienced business analysts built and tested a suite of dashboards, reports, and queries based on the new database. The result is a set of powerful, automatically updated, easy-to-use analytic dashboards that cuts across several clinical and financial categories and is available for both healthcare and media organizations to use today.
Among the numerous advantages that HDI offers over other healthcare dashboard companies and EDW vendors is the ability to be up and running in a day or two with virtually no setup time, no hardware to buy, and zero ongoing maintenance costs. HDI clients get immediate access to an ever-increasing library of new content, customized analytics for each hospital or health system, a complete historical record of each healthcare organization’s publicly reported metrics in one place, responsive, expert client support, and much more, all with a very affordable licensing structure.
The US health industry evolves continuously. With Health Reform here to stay and the true cost of programs such as CMS’s Value Based Purchasing yet to be fully determined, HDI stands ready to help guide healthcare organizations through the uncertainty of an ever changing data landscape.
