From the Back Cover
Healthcare, probably more than any other industry, haseverything to gain from moving to modern data reporting andanalytics systems. Which is why it is so surprising that, on thewhole, the industry has been so slow to adopt the businessintelligence (BI) programs and data warehousing (DW) systems thatdrive such functions. In part, this has to do with a lack ofknowledge among healthcare business leaders about how a BI programcan benefit their organizations and what is involved in buildingand maintaining one. Written by an author at the forefront of thehealthcare BI revolution, Healthcare Business Intelligencefills that knowledge gap.
Not a technical manual or data modeling guide, this book waswritten for CIOs, IT managers, and other business professionals whowant to know more about BI, specifically within a healthcarecontext. It tells you how to present a strong business case for BI,as well as how to plan, budget, build, and maintain a BI program.And, as no two healthcare organizations are the same, it offerspriceless pointers on how to shape a BI program to yourorganization's unique information needs, data resources, andculture.
Based upon author Laura Madsen's extensive experience modelingBI programs for healthcare institutions and with numerous real-lifecase studies illustrating the advantages of a well-designed BIprogram (and the disadvantages of a poorly designed one), this bookfills you in on:
- The crucial 5 tenets of healthcare business intelligence
- How to assess your organization's preparedness to adopt BI
- How to build an effective BI team
- The risks associated with getting BI/DW wrong and how tominimize them
- Tools and techniques for jump-starting your BI program
- Developing an effective BI lexicon for use in yourorganization
Along with a companion website featuring a variety of tools,Healthcare Business Intelligence is an invaluable source oftimely information. It offers expert advice, guidance, and powerfultools for healthcare companies that would like to bring theirinformation systems into the new millennium.

She defines "BI" and the major tenets of using that for healthcare. In addition to the main book material, Laura provides a full appendix of useful information as well as a companion website with electronic content.
Laura stays at a high level and does not dig too much into details. This should be a good read for healthcare executives considering a BI project or for those new to the BI topic.
