New BI technology delivers comprehensive healthcare analytics to support confident decision making that optimizes performance for acute, long-term and post-acute care firms

I built a BI tool my colleagues and I always wanted but couldn't find.

With public quality rankings and skyrocketing healthcare costs, healthcare organizations require comprehensive business intelligence to guide decisions. vitalsBI is the newest cloud-based business intelligence (BI) and data visualization platform available from OptimizeHealth, an IT company delivering worry-free IT solutions, reliable technology and performance-optimizing analytics to acute, post-acute and long-term care customers.

Unlike other business intelligence and data visualization tools, vitalsBI provides the full data story across three mutually-dependent functions: clinical, operations and finance. The software was designed to be data-source and data-format agnostic so customers can consolidate all of their data residing in their multiple applications, systems and spreadsheets. vitalsBI delivers a single resource and view of how an individual healthcare business is performing.

All measurements a healthcare customer is currently tracking – 5 Star Quality Rating, QAPI, labor, revenue, etc. – can be loaded into vitalsBI dashboards and reports. This access to all the data fosters confident decision making that optimizes patient care and business outcomes.

“I built a BI tool my colleagues and I always wanted but couldn’t find,” said Greg Nicholas, OptimizeHealth’s managing partner and veteran healthcare technology executive. “A single source of truth, as they say, a 360◦ view of the entire business to view metrics and trends from any angle of the business. Since I couldn’t find one, I decided to build one.”

Designed with the help of a consortium of healthcare leaders with clinical, financial, operations and IT backgrounds, vitalsBI consolidates a healthcare firm’s data to provide the answers to the questions decision makers ask. Questions such as:

  • What staffing ratios correlate to the best Five Star Quality Rating scores?
  • Which of our activities promote and improve partnerships with hospital systems, insurers, providers and other referrers?
  • Where in our business are profit margins at the greatest risk and why?
  • Which marketing efforts are most effective in attracting the types of providers and referrals that best suit our patient population and business?
  • Which region, clinic, facility or shift achieves the best patient outcomes? How?
  • What skill mix correlates to high levels of patient satisfaction and engagement?

vitalsBI is HIPAA compliant and founded upon a support framework that is Gartner Magic Quadrant™ ranked. Highly scalable architecture, vitalsBI is able to store any amount of data a customer is collecting. Nicholas stated, “Many organizations don’t have a technical team or support structure to consolidate data from separate systems like accounting, human resources, clinical documentation and coding, and electronic medical records (EMR). vitalsBI is able to address that gap and grow with the customer’s business.”

vitalsBI includes integration with the Internet of things (IoT) to broaden analysis and crystallize outputs from wearables, machines, buildings and other devices that communicate with each other.

In contrast to other BI applications, vitalsBI comes with a rapid deployment cycle, is attractively priced and simple to master. “Healthcare is dynamic and fast-paced and I knew our platform had to be quick to implement and easy to use so we weren’t tying up customers with days of training and long implementations,” Nicholas said. Unlike the typical analytics platform, vitalsBI can be implemented in weeks, not months and requires approximately three to four hours of training. “Users learn how to load their data files, point and click to link tables and start building dashboards and reports. We even provide pre-built templates as a ‘quick start’ approach and to minimize the implementation costs.”

On-demand help, 24x7x365 support and an ITIL™-based approach to service give customers the help they need when they need it.

vitalsBI is available to primary care and specialty clinics, home health agencies, large medical groups, nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, specialty pharmacies, assisted living facilities, hospices and rehabilitation facilities.
