Clinical and business intelligence is the aggregation, analysis, and use of clinical, financial, operational, and non-traditional data captured inside and out of the healthcare setting to directly inform decision-making. It has the power to positively impact patient care delivery, health outcomes, and business operations. Leveraging the power of clinical and business intelligence will improve our nation’s entire healthcare system as well as the medical and economic wellness of patients.
Clinical and business intelligence solutions aggregate data from IT systems and other non-traditional data sources into secure repositories or federated databases for the purpose of analysis. Combining the best of both business intelligence and clinical intelligence, it provides historical and predictive views of the organization’s operations — and a similar view of clinical care — in order to enable better business decisions and improve patient care delivery, all while improving the organization’s fiscal sustainability.
