by Steve BogdonTuesday, March 2, 2010

QlikTech, a leading business intelligence company, today announced the recent implementation of its QlikView for iPhone application by partner Surgical Information Systems.   Attendees at the at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society annual conference in Atlanta, Ga. visiting booth 1007 can receive a demonstration of QlikView for iPhone’s functionality being used to improve hospital performance through instant access to information  in the healthcare space.

As specialists in perioperative IT, Surgical Information Systems (SIS) provides adaptive and reliable solutions enabling improved profitability operational efficiency, patient safety and quality of care to over 250 hospitals.  SIS hospitals utilize SIS Analytics, powered by QlikView, for the iPhone to achieve clinical excellence and impact their bottom line. SIS offers analytics applications focused on clinical, executive, anesthesia, and tissue management views.  The insights produced by QlikView help their client hospitals ensure surgeon and operating room utilization are optimized for the highest levels of efficiency, allowing them to schedule more surgeries, reduce case turnover time and reduce wait time for patients.  Powerful decision support allows hospital management to better support initiatives that improve patient safety and quality of care, while also proving compliance with government and regulatory initiatives.

“Physicians and other healthcare professionals are rapidly adopting mobile technology to help them perform their jobs more efficiently,” said Ed Daihl, CEO, Surgical Information Systems. “We have found this mobile capability useful for everything from materials management to tracking patient safety initiatives, such as how soon after surgery patients receive antibiotics.  As adoption increases there are nearly limitless possibilities for how QlikView for the iPhone can be used throughout the hospital setting.”

Not only can QlikView help to improve the quality of patient care, QlikView can be leveraged to drive growth in margins, increased productivity and reductions in costs.  In a recent survey sponsored by QlikTech, IDC found that QlikView customers reported 96% satisfaction and marked business value after implementing QlikView, including:

  • 53% Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other solutions evaluated
  • 186% Return On Investment (ROI)
  • 34% increase in employee productivity
  • 23% increase in cash flow
  • 20% decrease in operating costs

QlikView provides a flexible platform that allows doctors, nurses, clinical technicians and hospital administrators to navigate and drill down extensive data streams to get the most pertinent information and accurate analysis delivered on an intuitive, visual display. QlikView for iPhone fully leverages all of QlikView’s analytics capabilities along with iPhone's multitouch and GPS features.
