Stamford Health, comprises a 305 bed hospital and over 30 physician practices. Using Tableau as the primary self-service data discovery and visual analytics platform, we have realized the true potential of data by empowering our physicians, clinicians, nurses, and analysts with the actionable insights needed for right time decision making. In a short span of time, Tableau has become the most important tool used across the organization to augment its clinical efficiency, quality improvement, and cost reduction efforts.
In this session, we will present Stamford Health’s journey of transformation of its analytical landscape and accelerate its performance improvement efforts with $ MM in cost savings and efficiency gains, to achieve "analytical nirvana".
Come learn about how we are delivering against Pfizer's ambitious goals to increase the speed of analytics, increase adoption and ultimately increasing the number of users "doing" analytics globally.
This session covers our journey from dealing with legacy challenges, to overcoming barriers for adoption, to creation and launching of innovative visualization and analytics services offerings such as Pfizer Visualization Cloud Platform, Envision and Pfizer Analytics Lab using Tableau. This session provides insight into these service offerings and how they are being leveraged across Pfizer, and the central role Tableau plays - from traditional sales reporting all the way through advanced visual analytics incorporating data science methodologies
At Seattle Children’s Hospital, we were challenged by supply chain management. Our orders didn’t reflect our needs, and as a result, our supplies were hoarded, hidden, and overstocked. Adopting self-service data discovery and visual analytics was a game changer for us. And our new process has saved us $ MM in inventory, carrying costs, and wastage per year.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- How self-service data discovery and analytics can be leveraged to support supply chain
- The data and analytics driven approach adopted by Seattle Children’s to drive measurable cost savings and productivity
- How actionable insights for physicians, nurses, and clinicians has enabled them to deliver a higher quality of care while removing them from “the supply chain business”
Tableau has ushered in a holistic way of defining our member's journey across digital, mobile, call center, and VOC platforms. Through integrating these desperate data sources in Tableau, it has provided key insights that have helped us determine the impact of our digital/mobile channels on our call channel, how our customers are solving their problems via self-help on our digital/mobile channels, and identify the key drivers for increasing customer satisfaction on our digital/mobile channels.
In this session you will learn how Tableau has become a vehicle for driving member satisfaction through profit and revenue maximization; triangulated with cost minimization and risk neutralization.
Tableau has helped our sales organization evolve how it uses data to make strategic planning decisions and execute on the robotic surgery opportunity. Three years ago, we introduced our first Tableau dashboards to the SVP of Sales Strategy with tremendous positive feedback. Today, each of our 800+ sales professionals across the company uses Tableau on a daily basis to garner insights into their business.
In the early days, real-time data was great, and we would print the dashboards onto PDFs and email them to our sales executives. Tableau was a much quicker medium for analysts to access live procedure and revenue data compared to our manual Business Objects and Excel reports we used previously. We started moving interactive dashboards onto Tableau Server, and executives from sales, marketing, and finance starting using them to dig deeper into the data. Our organizational voice became more relevant when executives were contemplating large strategic decisions. We could frame the data in ways that we could have never done before and were increasingly being called into meetings for real-time analysis as decisions were being made.
We decided to invest into Salesforce.com for our sales org. Because of our success with Tableau, we knew we wanted to keep it as our Analytical backbone. We ultimately decided to layer a number of Tableau dashboards into the SFDC canvas. We then went through a rigorous training with our 800+ sales folks on Salesforce.com and Tableau. The adoption of the dashboards has been a tremendous success. Never before have our sale reps had so much real-time information about their respective businesses at their fingertips. And what's so great about Tableau is that as the business evolves, we can change these dashboards very quickly and without a whole lot of additional cost.
Even a beginner can make a big difference! Learn how a Tableau novice at Intermountain Healthcare went from dashboard zero to dashboard hero. The dynamic simplicity of Tableau promoted efficient development of a dashboard that is already shaping the future of glucose management at Intermountain Healthcare. In this session, you will learn how Tableau, even in the hands of a beginner, can give you the power to make a difference. If you are new to Tableau or curious about the role of Tableau in a data-centered culture like Intermountain Healthcare, this session is for you.
As an early adopter of Health Information Technology and one of the nation's largest not-for-profit healthcare organizations, Kaiser Permanente (KP) has amassed a tremendous amount of health data over the past decades. Often, the data "request-to-insight" cycle serves as a bottleneck to achieving data-driven decision-making and program development.
KP is piloting an entirely new kind of meeting that is using Tableau to eliminate this bottleneck. A workgroup of clinicians and administrators at Panorama City Medical Center's Emergency Department (ED) in Southern California was tasked with developing a program to diminish unnecessary ED utilization. Rather than kicking off the first meeting with charts and graphs of static data explaining the overuse of their ED, the workgroup connected their ED data to Tableau and performed live data manipulation that enabled the clinicians and administrators to drive collaborative, on-the-fly analyses and visualizations. This resulted in the content experts rapidly testing hypotheses and quickly understanding which patient groups were the best targets for interventions, reducing the "request-to-insight" cycle from a matter of months to a matter of minutes.
In this session, we will discuss the principles and processes used by Kaiser Permanente to run effective, efficient, and engaging meetings using Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server as collaborative data exploration tools. We will cover the following topics:
- Exploration vs. Explanation: The value of using data visualization explore data collaboratively rather than just using data to create pre-defined explanations
- Processes for Live Data Exploration: The process used by Kaiser Permanente to prepare for and conduct meetings using Tableau Desktop and Tableau Server for collective data exploration
- Agile Business Intelligence: A live demo of a data exploration kickoff meeting, with Tableau Desktop connected to KP Emergency Department data
- Enterprise-Wide Adoption: Using this process to demonstrate high-visibility buy-in on the value of Tableau
In 2015 and 2016 MedStar Health had two seemingly competitive activities underway: pockets of individuals using Tableau, and the establishment of a group to inform an enterprise-wide analytics strategy centered on a single version of the truth. Among those using Tableau were individuals in MedStar Health's Institute for Innovation (MI2) experimenting with specific point solutions. In the end the two groups came together to develop a strategy based on Gartner's paper 'How to Architect the BI and Analytics Platform'.
In this session we will share our discovery process from isolated knowledge and use of Tableau to merging with the enterprise-wide strategy and evolving the culture of data & analytics to support data-informed decision making. We will discuss grassroots strategies for increasing knowledge and use of Tableau across the system, engaging executives to interact with the data rather than static reports, the process and benefits of establishing standards and applying a product development approach for building and maintaining dashboards, and the challenges faced in pulling data together and blending it from multiple sources.
Examples will include:
- Using Tableau to reveal successful patient recruitment strategies that were shared across the enterprise to meet a meaningful use requirement for patient portal interaction.
- Using Tableau to monitor clinical quality performance and identify opportunities for improvement, replacing an antiquated, static, and manually resource intensive 300+ Excel report that presented six infection control metrics for our 10-hospital system.
Learn how KPMG is providing better and faster analytics to its healthcare clients by utilizing Datawatch’s self-service data preparation solution. Better insights come from using data that you never thought possible-–data from PDFs, web pages, JSON, BI reports. Faster comes from pre-processing the data in a very natural, intuitive way to remove the 80% of time analysts spend preparing data. KPMG is able to access, combine, prep and clean their client’s financial data and push directly into Tableau for faster analysis and insight.
Building tools not just dashboards: Driving Standardization and targeted sales in an organization with thousands of clients and hundreds of thousands of products can be a daunting task. Ensuring Stakeholders have easy access to the greatest amount of information is essential to the most effective use of resources. Creating a culture of innovation and analysis is necessary to driving growth, especially within a Fortune 25 Organization. In this session, we will discuss our transition to Tableau and Tableau Server, how the rest of the organization was brought on board, what our use cases look like, and where we are driving to in the future.
In this session you will learn:
- The Business need: why we made the transition to Tableau
- Strategy: bringing stakeholders into the fold with interactive dashboards and tools allowing them access to levels of analysis they never had before through guided analysis
-How interactive dashboards can empower users to draw insights
- The tools themselves: how empowering stakeholders with information and guided analytics can drive stakeholder engagement and customer loyalty
- What's next: how we will continue to leverage Tableau to drive change in the organization.
Labor constitutes almost 60-70% of the cost of running a hospital and Glendale Adventist Medical Center is no exception. Securing accurate and near real time visibility into premium labor, both overtime and double-time was a significant challenge.
Glendale Adventist Medical Center leveraged self-service data discovery and visual analytics from Tableau to drive measurable labor and workforce process improvements and productivity, within the very first 30 days of implementation. Not only has the analytics slashed unnecessary overtime by over 1500 hours within the first 30 days, but also saved the nursing leadership hundreds of hours, while empowering them with the ability to proactively identify problems, analyze root causes and resolve them before they become significant challenges.
With access to the accurate and actionable insights via Tableau Server, clinical leaders are asking incisive questions re: the impact of numerous variables and levers on unit performance, that was not feasible before Tableau. They have transitioned from a paradigm of “business by intuition” to “business by insight” that is enabling 'decision making at the speed of business', while driving measurable value to the bottom line.
