Buyers guide


Last Updated: June 21, 2019

Business intelligence (BI) tools have been around for a long time, and these "decision support systems" have only grown more popular and more effective over the years. BI software is so commonplace that buyers can find options ranging from generic tools for any type of business to incredibly niche systems geared toward specific markets. That's where healthcare BI software comes in.

In this Buyer's Guide, we'll go over everything you need to know to gain a fundamental understanding of healthcare-specific business intelligence software. Here's what we'll cover:

What Is Healthcare BI Software?
Common Features of Healthcare BI Software
Benefits of Healthcare BI Software
Pricing and Purchase Options

What Is Healthcare BI Software?

Before going into more detail about business intelligence software made exclusively for healthcare providers, it will help to understand what BI software is in a more general sense. Speaking broadly, BI tools are designed to organize and analyze data to provide useful insights to businesses when making any decisions.

The type of data being analyzed can vary widely depending on the needs of the user—whether it's internal key performance indicators, external feedback from customers or social media or marketing campaigns. Regardless of the type of information being collected, BI technology works to make it understandable and actionable.

The difference between generic BI software and healthcare-specific BI software is the functionality. Most healthcare BI systems offer integrations for existing medical software, such as electronic medical records (EMR), patient portals, medical accounting and patient engagement. By linking a BI program to all of these existing sources of data, practices can see every piece of information and how each data point fits together, all in one place. Practices can then use all of that information to do things such as:

  • Track profit and expenses much more efficiently
  •   
  • Execute valuable and effective patient care and satisfaction initiatives
  •   
  • Access a broader range of research and information to improve patient outcomes
  •   
  • Maintain federal compliance

And that's just to name a few benefits. Obviously, the applications of this software depend on the features practices elect to pay for with their BI system, which leads to the next topic of discussion.

Common Features of Healthcare BI Software

Just like general business intelligence software, healthcare BI tools will be comprised of features that fall into one of three main spheres: data management, data discovery and reporting.

Data management encompases all the prep work that happens before data can be interpreted, such as collecting information, optimizing databases to house and organize it and cleaning the data.

Data discovery is the analysis process. This is where the data that was collected gets compiled in order to produce the easy-to-understand and actionable insights necessary for decision making.

Reporting features present the analyzed data in ways that are easy to comprehend, such as dashboards or charts and graphs.

Here are some of the more specific features to look for that fall within these three categories:

Big data collection Connects BI systems to big data sources (such as diagnostic information gathered from EMRs) to help medical professionals see and understand national or global health trends to provide better care for patients.
