National Skilled Nursing Leader focuses on Business Intelligence

Life Care Centers of America has spent almost half a century as a national leader in skilled nursing care. It also provides top inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services. In order to continue to best serve its 22,000 daily residents, the company embarked on a business intelligence journey with BlueGranite to modernize its data analytics.

Life Care manages over 250 skilled nursing, assisted living, and independent living facilities across 28 states. Data was previously decentralized into multiple applications across the organization. This made timely decision making a challenge. Life Care knew that identifying its key performance indicators, building a data warehouse, and providing powerful BI tools was crucial to moving the company forward.


Data-Driven Insights

The investment in a companywide business intelligence platform now serves as the foundation for many operational decisions throughout the organization. Life Care’s leadership has access to consistent information that is updated automatically from many applications across the organization. This one-stop solution empowers leaders with improved insight and the ability to make decisions in a timelier manner.

Highlights of Life Care’s business intelligence solution include:

  • Consolidated reporting of clinical, human resources, and financial performance.
  • Real-time census and labor data, to keep the organization staffed properly with fluctuating resident admissions and discharges.
  • Integration with multiple on-premise and cloud-based data sources that summarize “single version of the truth” data throughout the organization.
  • Companywide rankings to identify abnormalities and bring attention to concerns before they can grow into larger issues. The goal was to become as proactive as possible.

Modern Business Intelligence Creates Clarity

By implementing a seamless solution, management and staff are able to keep their focus on residents, rather than report generation from multiple applications across myriad locations. The company is now also able to spot concerns and address them as soon as possible.
