  • Tableau Viz Scheduling, Distribution and Alerting by Bryant Howell, Tableau Software
  • Tableau is continuing to invest in expanding the scheduling, distribution and alerting capabilities of Tableau Server. Bryant will discuss the current capabilities and new features coming in Tableau 10.3, as well as extending those features to meet your needs when embedding Tableau into your product suite. He will also go over the Behold! Emailer, which uses the extensible features of Tableau to provide PDF emailing as a service.

  • Integrating Tableau within Epic Systems EHR by Joy Vaughan Smith, Nelson Davis, & Ricardo Fiorillo, Slalom
  • Large software management systems are a must in many industries. Heathcare is no exception. While these systems typically shine when processing business transactions, reporting is many times limited to recent data as well as functionality. A data warehouse solution with a separate data visualization system provides an answer but at a cost of lack of integration. At Piedmont we tackled this issue by innovatively embedding Tableau Dashboards in their EHR and utilizing built-in functionality to link the reports at the record level. In this presentation we will review the implementation and approach to the various challenges we encountered.
