Cerner, Tableau Collaborate to Provide Advanced Data Exploration Capabilities to Health Care Organizations

KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cerner Corp. has collaborated with Tableau Software to enhance the data discovery experience of health care organizations through interactive data exploration.

The integration of Tableau's visual analytics with Cerner's HealtheAnalytics℠ and HealtheEDW℠ enterprise data warehouse and analytic offerings enables health care organizations to manipulate data and make new discoveries. Through this data mining and analysis, health care organizations can derive meaningful insight to identify trends, improve clinical decision support and help enable continuous improvement.

"With preventable health conditions rising, finding new ways to improve health and care through data analysis is key," said Adam Christmann, general manager, reporting and analytics, Cerner. "By providing our clients with the ability to easily know, predict and evaluate population data, they have the ability to make strategic decisions that can impact outcomes based on large volumes of data."

Tableau provides a highly intuitive interface, which allows health care organizations to discover trends and insights in data that might have gone undetected in static reports based on traditional business intelligence approaches. Tableau is rated as an industry leader by KLAS for 'Ease of Use.'1 Tableau has been ranked highest along the 'Ability to Execute' axis by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms, Gartner, Inc., February, 23, 2015.2

"Tableau's mission is to help people see and understand their data. Our collaboration with Cerner is an exciting step forward in doing this," said Scott Jones, senior vice president of Americas sales, Tableau Software. "Combining Cerner's leading health care information technology expertise with Tableau's advanced data discovery capabilities will support organizations in making data-driven decisions through face-up, meaningful information."

Analytics based on current clinical, financial and environmental data empowers health care organizations to make decisions that can contribute to patient care, resource management and workflow initiatives.

"We are excited about Cerner's and Tableau's collaboration in the enterprise data warehouse and population health analytic space," said Amanda Hammel, vice president, IT operations and population health, Memorial Hermann Health. "We chose to work with Tableau in 2014 based on their advanced data interaction and dashboard capabilities, which enable us to rapidly create and deploy complex business intelligence use cases. This alignment further solidifies our decision to utilize Cerner's HealtheAnalytics and HealtheEDW solutions to manage and drive value from the vast amount of data within our health system."

Tableau will be featured on the partnership wall in Cerner's booth 913 at HIMSS15 April 12-16 in Chicago.
