McKesson Analytics Explorer™: High-Speed Health Data Visualization

Move Beyond Statistics and Reporting

Most business intelligence solutions tend to focus on reporting. They are built to deliver data in static reports to answer pre-determined questions. The IT-dependent, time consuming nature of this approach can't provide real time insights or support organizational agility. These reporting systems rely on already overburdened IT staffs in order to simply:

  • Create new reports
  • Add new data sources
  • Help users ask and answer follow-up questions

Statistical programming packages fall on the other end of the spectrum. They allow for deep mining into data stores, applying predictive analytics, and forecasting. However, significant IT resources and PhD-level experience in statistics are required to define and manage reports from these systems. Typical business users don't have the time or experience to leverage the full power of these highly sophisticated systems.

There's a better way.

McKesson Analytics Explorer™ uses health data visualization to enable users to drill up, down, and across data—free of the dimensional constraints and IT dependence that traditional approaches require. It lets users apply "deep analytics" and instantly ask new questions as they arise.
