RTLS Business Intelligence Provides Valuable Insights Into Operational Efficiency in Healthcare
FARGO, N.D., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Intelligent InSites Inc., the leading provider of enterprise RTLS software helping hospitals improve patient satisfaction and operational performance while supporting multiple RFID and RTLS technologies, will introduce Intelligent InSites Business Intelligence at the 23rd Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care, organized by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.
The Business Intelligence (BI) solution from Intelligent InSites enables easy-to-use data mining of vast quantities of contextual data stored in the InSites Business Intelligence database, allowing healthcare users to analyze trends, identify process improvement opportunities, and report on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). This enables hospitals and healthcare systems to achieve powerful and flexible enterprise-wide visibility into their processes and make transformational impacts on their organization’s performance.
“With the increased adoption of RTLS solutions in hospitals, we need to ensure that we are not becoming data rich but information poor,” said Clint Abernathy, Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt, Administrative Director of Operations at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. “The enterprise data-mining and powerful analytics of Business Intelligence allows us to improve operational processes across our healthcare enterprise with actionable information, and we see tremendous value in this increased ability to support information-driven decision-making.”
According to Carol Tweten, Director of Product Management at Intelligent InSites, “Without an enterprise-class business intelligence solution, analyzing hospital operations data is highly time-consuming and cumbersome. With InSites Business Intelligence, we are empowering business users with self-sufficient and speed-of-thought access to the powerful insights contained within big datasets.”
Benefits of the Business Intelligence (BI) solution from Intelligent InSites include:
– Empowering non-IT users to analyze their enterprise data and create their own reports without relying on IT staff
– Providing highly interactive, easy-to-use dashboards and reports to visualize and understand enterprise data– within a single hospital and across multiple hospitals–to quickly identify trends, perform benchmarking, and
– Utilizing comprehensive and integrated business intelligence capabilities for data integration, data mining, and predictive analytics
– Enabling deep-dive data mining on years of historical data–including the location, status, condition, and interactions of tracked assets, patients, and staff–without impacting real-time RTLS performance
– Giving IT personnel time to focus on other strategic IT projects by decreasing user dependency on technical assistance
“With the addition of ‘big data’ analytics and enterprise-class business intelligence capabilities to the Intelligent InSites solution, we offer hospitals a powerful platform to leverage the massive amount of real-time data that we are collecting from their real-time systems,” said Marcus Ruark, Vice President of Marketing at Intelligent InSites, who will represent the company at the 23rd Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care. “As a result, healthcare providers can deploy their resources more intelligently–to improve the care they are providing while decreasing healthcare costs.”
The 23rd Annual National Forum on Quality Improvement in Health Care takes place December 4-7, 2011, in Orlando, Florida. This conference is the premier “meeting place” for healthcare providers committed to the mission of providing safe, effective patient care at a reasonable cost. Conference attendees can see the new Business Intelligence solution at Intelligent InSites’ booth #1107. During the event, healthcare providers can also register to win a free RTLS+ Value Analysis for their facility, which identifies high-impact areas across the healthcare organization for improved processes, improved care, reduced costs, and increased patient and staff satisfaction.
