Healthcare Data Warehouse Services
Our healthcare data warehouse solutions transform organizational data into accessible, actionable information that drives improvement in clinical outcomes, patient experience, and operational efficiency and quality. We are passionately committed to making data and metrics trusted and useful assets to your organization, as well as helping you improve standardization and transparency.
Data Warehouse (EDW)
The value a healthcare enterprise data warehouse provides is in supporting decision-makers with the information they need, when they need it, with confidence in the accuracy of the data. However, when organizations are working on compressed timelines and with limited resources, getting to the point of having useful data can be daunting.
DTA Associates can help organizations get up and running quickly with a healthcare data warehouse that is both adaptable and scalable.
Whether it is starting from scratch or enhancing an existing platform (such as Epic’s Caboodle Data Warehouse), we can help you turn your enterprise data warehouse into an essential knowledge asset in your organization.
So many organizations struggle with the same issues related to corporate metrics, which is why we created SMaRT, the Standard Measure Repository.
SMaRT is a tool that allows you to define all your metrics in one place.
This means your reports and dashboards all pull from the same place, ensuring that what shows up in your various business intelligence tools is consistent. Even better, the business logic for each measure isn’t hidden deep in the underlying code of a report somewhere, it’s available for everyone to see. If you are tired of wondering “which definition of readmission rate is this?” or “who can answer questions about this metric?” Contact us to find out more about SMaRT.
Business Intelligence Tool
There is a wide array of tools on the market that can display the information in your healthcare data warehouse. While these tools can look very similar in demos, they widely differ in what they can do and how easy they are to deploy. DTA can help you wade through all the choices to select the best business intelligence technology for your organization. Unlike many organizations, we aren’t financially (or otherwise) tied to any particular business intelligence or healthcare data warehouse solution, so we can help you find the best tools for your organization in an unbiased manner. Once you have selected a tool, if you need help getting up and running, we provide business intelligence development services as well!
DTA’s innovative metadata tool (Business Intelligence Catalog) allows organizations to improve data governance in health care by tracking definitions and other key information related to reports, dashboards, and databases across the organization. Your healthcare data warehouse information is presented with a streamlined, web-based interface, so it’s easy to use for technical staff and end-users alike. The metadata tool is highly customizable, and can be populated through a mix of automated and manual processes.
"DTA is very knowledgeable about what others are doing in the healthcare analytics space, and what is successful and unsuccessful both technically and organizationally. They took a customized approach to our situation and provided highly actionable recommendations. Plus, I really appreciate how they don’t load up the project with “fluff” tasks and unnecessary staff!"
