Publish Date: 2015/04/12

Tableau, a global leader in rapid-fire business analytics software, will host a healthcare analytics executive summit at the upcoming 2015 HIMSS National Conference. The summit will take place April 13 at 6:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Blackstone Chicago Hotel and will feature a panel discussion on healthcare analytics challenges and opportunities. Panelists include experts from the Cleveland Clinic, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and Baptist Health South Florida.

“Healthcare reform and the affordable care act are placing even greater demand on healthcare organizations to better see and understand their data,” said Andy Dé industry strategy and marketing leader for healthcare and life sciences at Tableau. “Tableau helps them get fast and actionable insights that help physicians, nurses, clinicians, and case managers deliver superior patient care.”

More than 26,000 companies and organizations around the world use Tableau, including many of the most respected healthcare institutions in the world. Of the 17 “Best Hospitals” ranked by US News, 14 are using Tableau for healthcare analytics, including Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Cleveland Clinic, and the University of Washington Medical Center.

Thousands of other healthcare providers, research institutions, and hospitals are using Tableau for visual analytics, including:

• The Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI) is leading the way in precision medicine by mapping clinical and genomic data from newborn children with healthcare informatics to proactively identify biomarkers for personalized treatment. Visualizing this data in Tableau helps ITMI deliver unprecedented health insights, assuring healthier patient outcomes.

• The Frederick Memorial Hospital in Maryland has begun using Tableau to visualize data on hospital resources, patient outcomes, and costs. Their early use of Tableau has led to the development of new cohort strategies for patients. The hospital plans to rollout Tableau to physicians, nurses, and clinicians to help caregivers make data-driven decisions and improve health.

• STANLEY Healthcare has integrated its MobileView software with Tableau, allowing hospital staff to drill down deeper than ever before into large datasets. For instance, using data from STANLEY Healthcare’s Wi-Fi location systems along with Tableau visualizations, staff can track the real-time location and status of patients and critical medical assets throughout the hospital. This helps healthcare providers deliver an optimal patient experience while assuring superior asset utilization.

Tableau recently formed a partnership with Cerner Corp. to integrate its data visualization capabilities with Cerner’s enterprise warehouse and analytics offerings. The partnership will help organizations find ways to improve health and care through greater data discovery and exploration capabilities.

In January 2015, KLAS Research placed Tableau among the top business intelligence vendors for healthcare. Respondents in the KLAS survey called Tableau one of the simplest visual analytics products to use and praised the visualization capabilities, speed, quick installation times, and strong value of Tableau Server.
