KnowledgeEdge Enterprise Data Warehouse

Analytics for Everyone

Health Care DataWorks' KnowledgeEdge is an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) solution that brings together existing silos of data and unifies them into a data model built specifically for hospitals and health systems. Through the use of accelerators such as pre-built dashboards, reports, and applications, hospitals and health care systems can quickly begin to empower their users with the health care analytics they need for critical decision making.

The Technology

The solution is housed inside your secure firewall or hosted at HCD’s data center.
Components include:

ETL server (optional): The supplied ETL engine is powered by Informatica, but customers can use any ETL solution.

Database server: This server hosts an Oracle database with financial, administrative, clinical, and research data gathered from across your organization, cleansed and unified into our data model.

Business Intelligence (BI) server: The BI layer supports both SAP Business Objects and Oracle OBIEE, providing you with a choice of two robust presentation layer tools.

Pre-built content: A wealth of dashboards and reports deliver fast and secure access to the answers to business questions. The solution also supports ad-hoc queries, multi-dimensional analysis, data & text mining, and BI applications that span multiple subject areas.
