Healthcare organizations stand to reap many benefits from business intelligence tools such as more efficient and cost-effective operations, IT investment preservation and improvements to quality of care, patient satisfaction and labor costs; yet, only 33 percent of healthcare organizations are using business intelligence, according to an infographic from Information Builders.
Generally, healthcare organizations seek the following functions from business intelligence products:
• Enterprise analytics
