BI for hospitals
Like every commercial enterprise, hospitals are bound to the economic principle – but they must also ensure evidence-based, patient-focused care. Hospitals have to be managed on the basis of both medical AND economic requirements in order to remain viable. This requires decisions – some of which are extremely complex – to be made at various points in the hospital. In turn, this requires comprehensible, controlling-relevant information and service and cost transparency for the hospital management and administration, as well as for those delivering the services.
DeltaMaster provides the necessary transparency to show how things are going and when and where action needs to be taken.
Business intelligence with DeltaMaster: Look, see, do!
A wide range of data analyses are required in order to identify particularly cost-intensive areas and potential process improvements and to ensure performance-based remuneration. You can use DeltaMaster to create flexible evaluations for all kinds of areas of application in the hospital environment, including
- Medical controlling/billing
- Care controlling/management of minimum nursing staff levels
- Surgery analysis
- Length of stay management
- Release management
- MDK management
- Liquidity controlling
- Procurement and logistics
- Contribution margin and cost accounting
Hospital management that is geared toward strategic and operational targets and the accompanying reporting require informative financial, performance, and coding KPIs. You can use DeltaMaster to generate exactly the KPIs you need – including
- Case numbers
- Case mix index (CMI)
- Length of stay and variance from the InEK average
- Occupancy/utilization rate (e.g. beds, surgery, staff)
- surgery times (surgical chart time, setup time, etc.)
- Staff costs
- MDK query rate
A wide range of controlling-relevant data forms the basis for KPIs, analyses, and reports. This includes both business data and clinical data from the hospital’s internal IT systems. Examples include data from the balance sheet, the income statement, and cost center accounting, staff data, case data, images, and findings. Data-driven hospital management also requires external market data on aspects such as patient flows, referrers, competitors, and population data.
You can use DeltaMaster to integrate data easily and automatically from almost every data source. This includes
- Clinical information systems (CIS)
- Radiology information systems (RIS)
- Picture archiving and communication systems (PACS)
- Laboratory systems
- Quality assurance systems
- Patient management systems
- Financial accounting software
- External databases
