Minneapolis, MN (PressExposure) January 05, 2010 -- The innovative use of Oracle Business Intelligence was recently detailed in a SearchOracle.com article. Kaleida used their Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) dashboard technology for analyzing emergency room visits where people arrived at a clinic with flu-like symptoms, tracking various metrics that included what time of day or night the visit took place. With this information, Kaleida was able to effectively calculate when a spike may occur so they could start diverting patients with flu-like symptoms to another clinic, minimizing the possibility of flu patients infecting others in a crowded waiting room.
Dan Gerena, Director of Business Intelligence and Corporate Analytics at Kaleida Health, details the strategy behind the reporting solution within the SearchOracle.com article.
âWe needed a way to track how many employees were calling in sick with flu-like symptoms to determine if there were any areas where people were transmitting it to each other and if that would result in a shortage of nurses to deploy,â said Gerena. âConstructing the Flu Monitoring Dashboard was made simple by the OBIEE dashboard technology.â
Kaleida transitioned to OBIEE from Oracleâs Discoverer product, which Gerena says could have produced a comparable dashboard but would not have been as easy to use.
BI Consulting Group played a critical role in the launch of Kaleida Healthâs business intelligence deployment. BICG provided expertise during implementation & configuration, RPD & security set-up, and provided comprehensive training through BICG University.
"Kaleida owes many thanks to BICG for helping us start off on the right foot early on in the project. Our ability to leverage BICG's experienced consultants helped us rapidly implement, and get a quick return on our investment,â said Gerena. âOnce we were able to benefit from their knowledge, we were empowered to move forward on our own, with the reassurance that we could count on them as a safety net when needed."
