NRC professionals provided real-time replication from EIPC Clarity to an operational data store and then into a dimensional data warehouse.
NRC professionals provided real-time replication from EIPC Clarity to an operational data store and then into a dimensional data warehouse. The data warehouse was patient and provider-centric, as well as multi-organizational (regional) and included other sources such as HR and finance.
All regulatory compliance and organizational analytics were calculated within the warehouse, including chronic disease, KPIs, Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) measures and analytics-based third party data. Data marts were created for each subject area where visualization tools (Qlik & Tableau) allowed users to interact with the information.
The solution also included four (4) Accountable Care Organization (ACO) data marts. As the company was multi-organizational (regional), due to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations, each region required their own ACO and, subsequently, their own unique ACO data mart. Each data mart was completely secured and isolated to the information for its designated ACO. Information from the data warehouse, as well as third party data, was supplemented into each ACO data mart for enhanced analysis capabilities. Analytics were calculated in each data mart and presented to end users via visualization tools. CMS ACO guidelines stipulated that each ACO data mart had to be secure (i.e. not backed up to any central repository) and it had to be demonstrable that all information could be destroyed permanently if required.

NRC was responsible for the real-time replication of data into an operational data store and then near real-time into a dimensional data warehouse.
NRC was responsible for the real-time replication of data into an operational data store and then near real-time into a dimensional data warehouse. Data from other systems was integrated into the system including patients, physicians, claims and financials.
The dimensional model permitted multi-context views of the information including sample, patient, physician and claim. Sample data, captured in near real-time (every 15 minutes), provided the information necessary to track sample progress at any given point in time.
Multiple analytics were calculated within the warehouse and delivered to data marts for visualization. Third party data was integrated into the warehouse so it could be utilized in analytic derivations as well as be delivered to analytic sandboxes. Analytic sandboxes, utilized by data scientists, were constructed to produce predictive models that would be used for data monetization purposes.
