True North Consulting & Associates Inc. (TNC), a provider of healthcare technology solutions, selected InetSoft’s dashboard reporting software, Style Scope, to power the user configurable report solution in its SaaS-based diagnostic imaging operations application. The company's utilization software automatically collects and integrates real-time disparate data from various hospital systems to create a unified monitoring system, providing valuable up-to-the-minute insight into diagnostic imaging (DI) operations.
With the availability of real-time key performance indicators for each DI modality device accompanied by a suite of institution-specific reports, users are better able to identify and address operational performance issues. In addition, consolidation of accurate information permits well informed, evidence-based decisions about workflow and process changes that can increase department productivity. An added benefit is that senior hospital administrators are able to compare their own DI operational benchmarks with other hospitals through the inter-hospital benchmarking function.
Among the reasons for selecting InetSoft’s reporting functionality, powerful data mashup capabilities were a pre-requisite given the unification of disparate data sources that the application performs. Beyond other technical reasons including the platform being Java-based and permitting rapid integration, InetSoft’s reporting solution stood out from others that were evaluated in the area of ease-of-use. For end-users of the application, such as clinicians and hospital administrators, who are not business intelligence experts, interacting with, and even designing new report templates had to be intuitive and user-friendly, and InetSoft proved to be the best choice.
