UPMC Invests $100M in Data WarehouseThe University of Pittsburgh Medical Center will be investing $100 million over five years to create a comprehensive data warehouse to house financial, clinical, administrative and other information from more than 200 sources, according to Information Week.
UPMC will be using several data platforms to maintain the information, including IBM's Cognos for business intelligence and financial management and dbMotion's interoperability platform for patient records.
The strategy aims to boost clinical and financial analytics to complement existing electronic health records, with the goal of helping physicians predict patient risk factors or effective treatments. The program also hopes to drive efficiency and cope with exponential data growth.
