Loyola University Physician Foundation Cuts Billing Lag Time by 50% With Microsoft BI
Chicago-based Loyola University Health System is a leader in healthcare and research. The system includes Stritch School of Medicine and the Loyola University Physician Foundation. Loyola struggled with problems familiar to many healthcare organizations: old, siloed legacy applications, inaccurate data, manual reporting processes, and minimal data analysis capabilities. With the help of The Revere Group, Loyola implemented a Business Intelligence solution based on SQL Server, Microsoft PerformancePoint Server, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. Revere integrated billing data from Loyola's IDX system, physician practice management information, and general ledger data into Microsoft SQL Server 2005. Leveraging Microsoft PerformancePoint Server 2007, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, and Microsoft Office Excel 2007, Revere built a BI solution that makes it easy for users to access, monitor, and analyze data from a single consolidated source.
