EHR leader Cerner is partnering with Tableau Software to enhance the data discovery experience of health care organizations through interactive data exploration. Through the partnership, Cerner will integrate Tableau’s visual analytics with Cerner’s HealtheAnalytics℠ and HealtheEDW℠ enterprise data warehouse (EDW) and analytic offerings. Through this data mining and analysis, health care organizations can derive meaningful insight to identify trends, improve clinical decision support and help enable continuous improvement.
“With preventable health conditions rising, finding new ways to improve health and care through data analysis is key,” said Adam Christmann, general manager, reporting and analytics, Cerner. “By providing our clients with the ability to easily know, predict and evaluate population data, they have the ability to make strategic decisions that can impact outcomes based on large volumes of data.”
Tableau provides a highly intuitive interface, which allows health care organizations to discover trends and insights in data that might have gone undetected in static reports based on traditional business intelligence approaches. Tableau is rated as an industry leader by KLAS for ‘Ease of Use.’1 Tableau has been ranked highest along the ‘Ability to Execute’ axis by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms, Gartner, Inc., February, 23, 2015.
Analytics based on current clinical, financial and environmental data empowers health care organizations to make decisions that can contribute to patient care, resource management and workflow initiatives.
