Ascribe employs Microsoft Business Intelligence tools

Big Data Solution Transforms Healthcare with Faster Access to Information

Ascribe, a leading provider of IT solutions for the healthcare industry, wanted to help clinicians identify trends and improve services by supplying faster access to information. However, exploding volumes of structured and unstructured data hindered insight. To solve the problem, Ascribe designed a hybrid-cloud solution with built-in business intelligence (BI) tools based on Microsoft SQL Server 2012 and Windows Azure. The solution also includes apps that run on Windows 8 tablets. By simplifying implementation with end-to-end Microsoft products, the company developed a proof of concept within six weeks. Now, clinicians can respond faster with self-service BI tools and gain actionable insight from a wide variety of data that includes clinical records, emergency room notes, and social media feeds.

Based in Bolton, England, Ascribe is a leading provider of business intelligence (BI), consultancy, and clinically focused IT solutions and services for the healthcare industry. Ascribe estimates that 82 percent of National Health Service (NHS) trusts in the United Kingdom use its products. With access to large volumes of data, the company wanted a BI solution that would help healthcare providers detect, predict, and respond more quickly to outbreaks of infectious disease and other health threats.

Healthcare analysts typically work from data collected and coded when patients receive treatment in clinics and hospitals. "By the time they get that information it's usually out-of-date," says Paul Henderson, Business Intelligence Division Head at Ascribe. "The data has already been coded and stored in a record-keeping system, or it's been collected from a hospital workflow and that doesn't always happen in real time."
