The Challenge: Improve Healthcare With Better Visibility Into Patient Data

As a healthcare center with millions of patients treated and over 900 physicians, Loma Linda University Health Care (LLUH) wanted to improve patient care with better visibility and insight into patient and business data.

With a small team, Loma Linda University Health Care is responsible for managing the entire data and analytics process for outpatient services.

Since Loma Linda University Health Care heavily relies on Epic for its patient information, they needed an easy way to extract and blend Epic and other data to create a 360-degree view of their patient data.

To improve patient care, we need access to our data. Pentaho is helping us provide better analytics and care to the hundreds of thousands of patients we serve each year.
