Customer is a healthcare provider with a mission to improve the health of women and infants, currently one of the largest in the United States. It is a private, non-profit organization that is consistently recognized for its innovative programs for women and infants and one of the largest delivery services in the U.S.
Customer had a reporting solution that was tied to the Meditech EMR system which made any reporting or enhancement request time consuming and costly. Customer wanted a modern data warehouse which would allow to bring in data from multiple systems and for better reporting solution. Customer was
looking for a partner who was experienced in both DW & Reporting and Healthcare, one who could provide industry standard guidelines, do implementation with short time as a major factor and train the internal team as the project progressed.
After a few initial discovery sessions and analysis, Customer and VNB team decided together that STAR schema would make most sense and speed up the design of the facts and dimensions. Together as one team, the team decided on best approach on how data for the labour and delivery module could be brought in to the DW and what is needed in the PowerBI model for reporting solution. All aspects such as data volume, performance, scalability, usability, security, sharing and collaboration were discussed, and solution designed. VNB team provided industry standard best practices that govern key disciplines of design and development of DW & Power BI reports to help client in future implementations.
- Cost savings by eliminating older reporting solution & licensing
- Standardization of report architecture and move to self-service BI mode
- Ramping up of successful implementation due to experienced VNB engineers
- In house training for additional implementations for other modules
