Case Study: Meriter Uses Microsoft BI to Improve Patient Care

Meriter Health Services has long been committed to using information technology to deliver efficiencies and improve patient care. To simplify the important patient-facing elements of care delivery, Meriter uses Epic’s electronic medical records (EMR) software, EpicCare.
The organization recently teamed up with Perficient on the implementation of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 data management software and other technologies in the Microsoft BI stack to work in conjunction with Epic.
Here is an excerpt from the case study describing the solution:

As longtime users of Microsoft Office, Meriter wanted to ensure users’ interactions with the BI tool were a natural part of everyday work. Choosing a Microsoft-based BI solution would also allow the BI experience to be delivered through the existing and familiar collaboration portal, based on SharePoint 2010 – giving users a seamless, “self-serve” environment.
Meriter engaged Perficient to assist with the deployment. Perficient business intelligence specialists worked with the organization to gather objectives, define the scope, and deploy the BI solution to Meriter Hospital’s orthopedics practice and to the Meriter Medical Group, which manages the administration of clinics. An enterprise-wide deployment of the BI solution is slated for early 2014.

The result of this pairing has been a decrease in costs, increased efficiency across the organization, and the ability develop more standardized practices and protocols – a key component of quality. To learn more about Meriter’s use of the Microsoft BI stack alongside Epic, read the case study or watch the video below. You can also read Microsoft’s version of the Meriter case study for additional information.
