  • Welcome & Introduction by Nicole Lohr & Simon Beaumont
  • Tableau and Alteryx: A Perfect Pair to Help Visualize Nursing Hourly Rounding Requirements by Bill Hale & Braxton Lagerman
  • Patient satisfaction is a key metric that influences both hospital ratings and reimbursement. Hourly rounding is a big part of this and can help anticipate and address the needs for hospitalized patients. Learn how a community hospital transformed and combined data from multiple sources in a format that allows clear presentation within Tableau to meet hourly rounding requirements. Utilizing Alteryx, the hospital was able to combine disparate data from various systems to produce rounding requirements for each patient to determine whether each of those individual rounding requirements were met for visualization in Tableau.

  • Using Tableau to Drive Infection Prevention & Control by Jeff Kritzman
  • We at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics use Tableau to direct our Infection Prevention & Control efforts. Tableau has allowed us to automate most of our infection reporting and has driven process improvement around data submission and validation. We are working on moving beyond scorecards and into more contextual and deeper analysis of our data, truly using our infection data to improve hospital-wide outcomes.
