QlikView brings unprecedented simplicity, flexibility and scalability to such healthcare information challenges. According to KLAS, “QlikView customers particularly highlight the in-memory technology, noting near real-time data and faster dashboard creation, helping departments more quickly act on patient outcomes and financial performance.”2 Through QlikView’s powerful, accessible Business Discovery solution, healthcare providers such as Centerstone Research Institute (CRI), Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA), and ThedaCare now have an integrated view of information, providing actionable insights from billions of records in seconds – improving healthcare delivery.
According to a QlikView customer surveyed by KLAS,3 “We used QlikTech QlikView to build what our operational management uses to manage their business. It was unbelievable to provide all of that to them using QlikTech QlikView. I have never seen customers so appreciative before. They were just blown away that they could have that type of fingertip access in such a short time. They were used to making requests and getting the question back in a couple of weeks.”
“Healthcare providers are recognizing the need to create a culture of data driven decision-making with the ultimate goals of improving patient care and operational efficiency,” said Ellen Derrico, Director Global Market Development, Life Sciences & Healthcare at QlikTech. “Receiving such a high overall score in this KLAS report is a testament to the more than 500 healthcare providers worldwide that have turned to QlikView to overcome their information challenges and improve their organizational performance.”
