Join us Wednesday, March 8 for the Virtual Healthcare Tableau User Group.


Welcome & Introduction by Jonathan Drummey, DataBlick

How New York Presbyterian Hospital is Turning Any Data into Visual Data by Craig Budzynski, New York Presbyterian Hospital

It's easy to talk about actionable data but knowing when, where, and how to serve analytics content is often challenging. At New York Presbyterian Hospital, the Nursing and Emergency Departments partnered with the Analytics department to integrate patient quality data within the clinical workflow, allowing front-line staff to seamlessly access and act upon real time information to improve patient care. In this session we will cover:

  • Planning: what lead to the need for Tableau Server integration with other systems
  • Innovation and execution: JavaScript API for context passing of patient information
  • Departmental adoption: Tableau Server integration into workflow
  • Next steps: how Tableau can change the way clinicians document and interact with patient data

    Scaling Tableau at Piedmont Healthcare with Python and Exasol by Mark Jackson, Piedmont Healthcare

    In this session we will cover:

    • Live Queries of XML Data (Press Ganey Survey Data)
    • Automated Tableau Log Mining (Who’s queries are impacting my server performance?)
    • Automated Metadata Updates for Published Data Sources
    • Exasol Demo (1.5 billion records)

    Tableau Tip by Jonathan Drummey, DataBlick

    Why is it so hard to re-use a simple total? Tableau’s Mental Model vis-à-vis Excel’s Mental Model.

    New Tableau users (particularly coming from Excel) are often challenged because there are some fundamental differences between how Tableau approaches data vs. other tools. Jonathan will go over one of the major differences in mental models using an example of generating a group mean benchmark that can be used in other views.
