FEATURED SOLUTION BRIEF

LEADING HEALTHCARE SYSTEM TRANSFORMS PATIENT OUTREACH

A Midwestern healthcare system has been growing by leaps and bounds since it embarked on a 1990s expansion, transforming it from a traditional, single-site academic medical center into the broad-based regional healthcare system. It’s now one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers, offering patient-centered healthcare with over 3,000 registered beds. Hoping to build off the benefits of that initial solution, the healthcare system’s marketing department recently reached out to BlueGranite to build a data mart, reports, and dashboards that aggregate, summarize, and restructure promotional information from the enterprise data warehouse design.
