How is data managed?
Ember Metrics simplifies the management of hospital indicators used for accountability reporting and quality improvement initiatives. It efficiently centralizes all performance data in one easy-to-use software tool and can scale to include hundreds of measures at the corporate, program, and unit level.
When data is available to automatically populate performance indicators, Ember Metrics has the ability to retrieve that data from a wide variety of sources including relational databases, analytical cubes, Microsoft Excel, flat files, and ODBC compliant data sources.
What analysis does it enable?
Ember Metrics enables you to proactively find correlation between different indicators to determine if quality improvement initiatives have had unanticipated effects elsewhere. For example, you can monitor aggregate patient activity to ensure that efforts to reduce inpatient length of stay do not result in higher readmission rates.
