Kalispell Regional Medical Center (KRMC) was highlighted in the July edition of the MEDITECH Community Bulletin, a periodic newsletter for users of the MEDITECH Health Information System. KRMC's Application Specialist Pat Korolog-Mulberger and the Pharmacy Informatics Specialist Suzanne Catalfomo, shared their MUSE International 2009 presentation entitled, "Surviving the Data Jungle - A Team Approach for Beginners Using MEDITECH's Data Repository" with the MEDITECH Community. The presentation focused on Kalispell's challenge of obtaining aggregated data and providing it to the necessary departments without hindering IT resources. After extensive research Kalispell implemented Dimensional Insight's, The Diver Solution to assist with this challenge which allows multiple departments to build their own reports thus alleviating the need to rely solely on the IT department for report requests.

"The Diver Solution automatically integrates information from various systems, including MEDITECH's Data Repository, while making the data actionable in a web-based platform. This allows decision makers to easily navigate through the data without requiring additional report writing or scripting," explains George Dealy, Vice President of Business Development at Dimensional Insight. "A team approach to creating business-critical reports is easily achieved with our tool since it requires minimal training to get users up and running."
Dimensional Insight's, The Diver Solution software allows organizations to improve decision making in three steps; data collection, data assembly and information delivery. Data is extracted and collected with DI's Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) tool. Once the required data has been collected The Diver Solution automatically refreshes user views any time new source data becomes available.
"Allowing individual departments the ability to fulfill their own reporting needs not only requires less IT involvement," adds Paul Comras, Director of Healthcare Sales at Dimensional Insight, "but it also empowers users to take action and make informed decisions more quickly than ever before."
