Business intelligence (BI) seems to be a part of many conversations these days. BI solutions have become a necessary investment in order to keep up with today’s dynamic and demanding environment. Healthcare organizations are at various stages of evaluating and adopting one of many business intelligence software solutions that are thrown at them, and they all want the best solution for their environment. Some organizations have decided to purchase an enterprise-wide generic business intelligence platform, which solutions can be built upon across the organization. For example, tools, such as Cognos or Business Objects, are commonly adopted by corporate IT teams because they provide consistency across the organization. However, these software platforms are generic BI tools and need to be built upon and customized for the specific department and/or functional need. Recognizing this gap, Viewics is a healthcare business intelligence solution built with the flexibility to work with these generic BI tools.
Tailoring these generic platforms to a specific department’s preferences can be a challenging and time-consuming process. Both functional and IT personnel need to commit significant time and effort to customize the solution for the data sources, requirements, and functionality of the department. The data infrastructure needs to be built and maintained for proper analytics. Finally, ongoing support and service will be required for ongoing needs of the users. Consequentially, these generic BI products often become “shelfware” if it’s not customized and supported in the right manner.
With dependence on a generic BI platform, all departments are forced to rely on a single, corporate IT team to manage and support departmental needs. Especially in today’s dynamic environment, IT teams may not have sufficient bandwidth to respond to the critical and time-sensitive requests each department has. The roll-out of an enterprise-wide software may not happen immediately for your organization’s departments, and ultimately disrupt existing systems that users rely on to perform day-to-day functions. It could take months, even years, to build out the enterprise-wide systems to make it relevant and usable for each department. In these situations, laboratories and other departments often seek to supplement the organization’s enterprise-wide system with software solutions which serve their specific requirements and needs.
