River Valley Health Adopts Dimensional Insight's HospitalAnalysis to Enhance Decision Support in MEDITECH

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(CCNMatthews - May 27, 2005) -

Dimensional Insight, Inc., today announced that River Valley Health of New Brunswick, Canada, has deployed an application based on Dimensional Insight's HospitalAnalysis solution. This application uses data sourced from multiple MEDITECH modules.

"We needed a tool that would support a cultural shift towards evidence-based decision making," stated Andrea Seymour, Vice President & CIO at River Valley Health. "Dimensional Insight's HospitalAnalysis integrates multiple data sources into a single view for both front-line and senior management." The first application deployed with HospitalAnalysis is focused on monitoring and improving utilization.

River Valley Health recently published a 3 year strategic plan which has crystallized a focus on key performance indicators. Although many of these indicators - such as ER fractile response rate and chronic disease hospitalization rates - were tracked previously, HospitalAnalysis will allow senior and front-line managers to see key critical indicators on a dashboard. Yet, managers will still be able to quickly dive down through the data to determine the root cause of any concerns.

"Although River Valley uses MEDITECH tools such as NPR and ESS, HospitalAnalysis will provide many new capabilities," noted Ron Felt, Healthcare Industry Director at Dimensional Insight. "River Valley will now be able to integrate all clinical, financial and administrative data with ease and intuitively explore that data without any kind of pre-programmed paths or hierarchies."
