Decision Support System for Medical Practices

04.24.2009

To effectively manage a medical practice, you must make important clinical, financial and administrative decisions everyday.  How can you make the most “informed” decisions about your practice?  You can do it by culling and relating each important data element from your billing or electronic medical record systems with a business intelligence solution.

While there are a variety of analytics or business intelligence solutions on the market that can work for your practice, it is advantageous to get one that does not require someone with an information technology background to operate it.  You need one that is easy-to-use and capable of rendering complex information into a simple-to-understand format.  The solution should combine ad hoc analysis and reporting capabilities to allow for presentation services, graphing, and everything else needed to analyze practice trends, develop universal metrics, measure long-term changes, and gather operational decision-support data.

If you find that you’re asking questions but not getting answers for your practice, contact Harmony Healthcare IT.  We can introduce you to a business intelligence solution that can provide answers for your toughest medical practice questions.
