Qlik Transforming Global Healthcare
David Bolton, Global Industry Solutions Director - Health and Public Sector, Qlik
Joe Warbington, Industry Solutions Director - Healthcare, Qlik
This session focuses on customer success in the Healthcare industry from across the world. David Bolton and Joe Warbington will describe some of the most successful use cases in healthcare, what trends we are seeing in healthcare analytics and a glimpse into the future opportunities for analytics to impact healthcare delivery.
Data Driven Decision Making in Radiology
Michael Burns, Project Manager, Ambulatory Care, Rochester Regional.Health
Steve Coppola, Data Architect, Rochester Regional Health
The introduction of Qlik for decision making at the Rochester Regional Health Radiology group allowed them to extract, organize, and display data to quickly address changing needs. With the new ability to identify volume patterns they adjusted modality-specific staffing and start/end times to better support the Emergency Department. In Interventional Radiology they now better understand volume challenges based on referral patterns and room utilization. They use this system to establish block times in shared exam spaces. In addition, they used this analysis tool to track turn-around times and demonstrate performance to goal. Qlik analytics has allowed Executives and Business Analysts to find data patterns that were not previously visible, improving patient care, created efficiencies and expanded services in Radiology.
Qlik as a functional clinical and administrative decision support engine for the Healthcare Industry
Rob Mackay, Associate Director, Aginic
Brett Thebault, Director, Aginic
The slow uptake of electronic medical records in the acute sector in Australia, combined with the plethora of legacy systems that exist across both public and private healthcare organizations, has meant that hospitals and health services have had to explore other options for providing functional clinical and administrative decision support solutions. A lot of these organizations are turning to Qlik to deliver this type of functionality; and more and more these organizations are preferring to access these solutions via mashups.

Qlik Integration within a Cerner Electronic Medical Record
Chris Myers, System Analyst, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
This session will describe how Cerner data is arranged to permit integrated functionality between Qlik and the electronic health record. We will show the apps in access point and then nested in Cerner to show the chart navigation functionality and how the two systems can speak seamlessly together. This permits the Qlik data model to be de-identified and reduces risk of patients being identified.
Low Hanging Fruit - Open Patient Encounters
Etter Hoang, Business Intelligence Development Manager, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
Medical documentation is a necessary evil in the new digital age of healthcare. In this transition to electronic records, at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center we have recognized the persistence of ambulatory unclosed encounters in our EMR which continues to have clinical and financial impact. This session highlights the necessity of addressing timely documentation with strong policies that have significant clinical and financial impact. A demonstration of the application along with a discussion of how QlikView, and the policies surrounding open encounters, are used to both visualize and operationalize the data. The session will also highlight the use of statistical models to risk assess providers with a propensity to keep encounters open.
Healthcare Service Demand Management
Mark Hinch, Health Care Intelligence Analyst, Bellin Health
Bellin Health determined that the elimination of waste, cost, and variation was a key strategy for our future sustainability and success. Labor costs as a percent of Revenue were higher than industry benchmarks, so we needed our team leaders to focus on managing the productivity of their teams. We knew we needed to establish metrics for each department. Our recent implementation of EPIC across the system provided a new asset that allowed us to establish units of service for most of our departments (e.g. minutes in surgery, CAT Scans completes, weighted procedures performed, encounter visits, etc.). By measuring worked hours over units of service, we were able to track productivity and establish targets for each department.
Population Health Using Claims Data and Qlik Sense
Robert Klein, Clinical Informatist, OhioHealth Group
Greg Miller, Manager of Business Intelligence, OhioHealth Group
Learn how OhioHealth Group has leveraged Qlik Sense and medical claims data to quickly provide insights into the health, cost and utilization of a population.
Using Qlik to Combine Financial and Physician Performance Metrics
Steven Chaisson, Business Intelligence Analyst, MBA, LSU
Jared Latiolais, Project Manager, LSU Health Shreveport
As with most Public Academic Medical Schools in the country, LSU medical school is facing future funding problems. Detailed information on faculty clinical performance and clinical department financial performance is needed. The main problem in gathering strategic information lies in the fact that our financial, clinical, and faculty information lie in many disparate databases. We have never combined Peoplesoft information with medical billing information until recently to get clear understanding of our production and financial position, except in Excel, which took months to build. Recently, we began using the power of Qlik to build a financial and medical production application to help us paint a financial picture of how we compared to other Medical schools in our region.
