Preview of Driving Measurable Clinical and Financial Performance using Tableau at Stamford Health by Divya Malhotra

Stamford Health comprises a 305 bed hospital and over 30 physician practices. Using Tableau as the primary self-service data discovery and visual analytics platform, we have realized the true potential of data by empowering our physicians, clinicians, nurses, and analysts with the actionable insights needed for right time decision making. In a short span of time, Tableau has become the most important tool used across the organization to augment its clinical efficiency, quality improvement, and cost reduction efforts.

In this session Divya will present a preview Stamford Health’s journey of transformation of its analytical landscape and accelerate its performance improvement efforts with $ MM in cost savings and efficiency gains, to achieve "analytical nirvana”.

Preview of Supporting Eradicating Malaria in Zambia by 2020 by Jeff Bernson and Anya A'Hearn

In 2014 PATH and the Tableau Foundation launched #VisualizeNoMalaria, an initiative to support the Zambian Ministry of Health to eliminate malaria there by 2020. This preview of our Tableau Conference 2016 session will showcase the community efforts of PATH and the volunteers in developing a detailed understanding of the end-user requirements for data collection, validation, and analysis in order to build dashboards to support the work in Zambia.

Tableau Tip: Using Tableau’s Level of Detail Expressions in Healthcare by Jonathan Drummey

In this presentation Jonathan Drummey will introduce Tableau’s Level of Detail (LOD) Expressions and how they are useful for a couple of common situations in healthcare data.
- There are multiple diagnosis descriptions in the data for the same diagnosis code—for example when the diagnosis data is coming from multiple electronic medical record systems—and we want to use just one diagnosis description for a given diagnosis code.
- Charge data at the encounter level is replicated to every diagnosis row and we want to ensure that charges are not replicated when we add them up (the SUM DISTINCT problem).
