Tableau (NYSE: DATA), a global leader in rapid-fire business analytics software, today announced the addition of several leading healthcare organizations and hospital systems to its growing list of healthcare customers. New customers included Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, and Glendale Adventist Medical Center.

“We’ve continued to see pioneering customers who have adopted Tableau as their healthcare analytics platform of choice, to enable actionable insights across the enterprise - from strategic planning, human resources, clinical and population health, to revenue cycle, supply chain and operations management,” said Andy Dé, global industry director for healthcare and life sciences at Tableau. “Tableau is empowering physicians, clinicians, nurses and case managers with the actionable insights needed for life-impacting decisions at the point of care (POC) and also delivering measurable value and payback on their investments in weeks and months, unprecedented in the healthcare analytics arena.”

In addition to the new customer adoption of Tableau’s leading BI platform, the company was also recognized as a leader in the recent KLAS Enterprise Healthcare BI 2016 research report. The survey of healthcare providers praised Tableau for its usability, functionality, and excellent training support.

Thousands of leading healthcare providers have deployed self-service data discovery and visual analytics from Tableau to empower their healthcare knowledge workers with actionable insights enabling superior patient outcomes including:

  • NorthShore University HealthSystem leveraged integrated dashboards to identify actionable insights that enabled the organization to proactively detect high-risk patients in need of care coordination and thus, reduce 30-day patient re-admission rates. These insights were accomplished by mining the robust clinical and administrative data maintained by NorthShore and integrating the results back into the EMR workflows for physician, clinician and case manager intervention.
  • Michigan Medicine has implemented Tableau to gain visibility into its revenue cycle management processes. The new initiative has seen significant benefits, including $3 MM in funds recovered from payers and more than 10,000 hours saved through increased productivity on charge estimation, recovery audit contractor (RAC) audits, automating cash reconciliation and relative value units (RVU) reporting.
  • Stamford Health, a not-for-profit healthcare system in Connecticut consisting of a new 640,000 square foot hospital, a large outpatient facility and several ambulatory locations in their network, deployed self-service visual analytics from Tableau across the enterprise to power clinical, operational and financial business processes. They have saved almost $500 K in redundant software and outsourced consulting services, have reduced routine reports turnaround time (TAT) from 4-5 weeks to less than 3 days, have delivered $3 MM in value and expect additional potential savings and cost avoidance through the usage of advanced analytics.

Tableau will be providing demonstrations of its visual analytics platform at the upcoming 2017 HIMSS National Conference in Orlando. Attendees can visit Tableau in the HIMSS Exhibition Hall at booth #1631, or online at http://www.tableau.com/healthcare-analytics.
