Columbus, OH (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Health Care DataWorks, Inc. (HCD) is entering into an agreement with El Camino Hospital to provide its KnowledgeEdge™ Enterprise Data Warehouse. El Camino Hospital, with facilities in Mountain View and Los Gatos, Calif., turned to HCD as part of its broader initiative to implement LEAN process management and enhance organization-wide business intelligence.
Health Care DataWorks’ Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) will aggregate data for seamless access to information across multiple operational systems, including clinical, administrative and financial functions. This information will enable the system to make more informed decisions to improve quality, reduce costs and enhance business intelligence. KnowledgeEdge includes numerous accelerators, such as an underlying data model, pre-built dashboards, reports and applications. Initially, El Camino Hospital plans to implement business intelligence surrounding clinical services to manage metrics such as quality, patient experience and Value-based Purchasing (VBP).
“We’re looking forward to working with HCD to implement a business intelligence solution that empowers our team to achieve results,” said Greg Walton, El Camino Hospital’s Chief Information Officer. “Our objective is to access organization-wide information from a technology perspective as well as to create processes that engage and encourage employees to maximize use of the Enterprise Data Warehouse to the benefit of the entire health system.”
HCD partnered with El Camino Hospital’s LEAN process team to develop a business intelligence roadmap that serves as the foundational strategy for the EDW. The process included joint planning sessions to assess information needs and garner insights from end users as to how they would use data in their everyday responsibilities.
“We’re working hand in hand to deliver a business intelligence solution that incorporates the methodology, strategy and technology to integrate with El Camino Hospital’s lean process management,” said Detlev H. (Herb) Smaltz, Health Care DataWorks CEO. “Together, we’re putting El Camino Hospital in a stronger position to leverage vast information resources to enhance decision making on multiple levels and positively influence a wide range of metrics.”
