St. Luke's University Health Network is a non-profit, regional, fully integrated, and nationally recognized network providing services at seven hospitals and more than 300 outpatient sites.
The organization maintained a variety of diverse data sources, which made it difficult to obtain a single, consolidated view of critical information in support of clinical, financial, and operational analysis.
They aimed to create an enterprise health data warehouse with a single view of key business entities to support analytical applications that allow stakeholders to gain insights across all mastered data domains and covering the full continuum of patient care.
Rather than getting mired in lengthy data integration and master data management (MDM) processes without any short-term benefits, stakeholders decided to focus on time-to-value by letting business priorities drive program deliverables.
St. Luke's partnered with Omni-HealthData to implement a comprehensive data integration plan designed to optimize the accuracy, reliability, and security of enterprise information. Omni-HealthData's out-of-the-box data model provided a ready-to-go launch pad for the project, and its built-in features supported their rapid implementation timeline.
By working on analytics in parallel with the data integration, St. Luke's and OmniHealth-Data were able to launch an initial set of quality dashboards in just four months.
