We were asked for help with a specific report on Population Health. Generating and maintaining it required the acquisition of data from several sources.
As the data sets grew larger, the tools in use eventually proved inefficient. At times they were causing confusion and obscurity in the data governance arena.
The manual effort required to prepare the data report was high. A re-evaluation determined the need for an upgrade.
Our client required a self-service business intelligence solution. One that could centralise and standardise its reporting system, by accessing the data from multiple sources and preparing the visual reports quickly. It did not have anyone in-house to do the required initial set-up so needed the expertise of an external consultancy to set the systems in place.
FIRN provided expertise, along with the right software and licensing options. The client selected Tableau as the tool of choice to centralise the visualisation reports from multiple data sources.
A FIRN Consultant performed a data clean up, implemented the system report automation, and created dashboards and templates to ensure visual representation of best practices for future reports.
The whole development process was completed in two stages. The initial setup took three months, with the transition from multiple data sources to a singular Tableau data source taking place a year later.
