Maintaining a world leadership position in hospital intensive care services has been the stated - and achieved - goal of the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS) since its founding in 1975. In order to provide member Intensive Care Units (ICUs) with accurate and up-to-date reporting facilities, ANZICS identified the need to implement a Web-based portal for self-service reporting. This would also bring about significant reductions in the administrative effort required on the part of ANZICS to print, collate and mail hard-copy reports. In partnership with SAS Australia and New Zealand, ANZICS implemented a data entry and reporting portal based on SAS Enterprise BI. The SAS solution has given ICUs throughout Australia and New Zealand the ability to obtain timely reports.
