Top 5 Problems with Today’s Healthcare Application Reporting

  1. Reporting is only relevant to the specific application and is not designed to merge with other disparate application data.
  2. Generating reports from a “live” application database is resource-intensive on the source system, and reporting performance is either sluggish or it hinders the performance of the source system — often both.
  3. Application vendors offering a reporting or ETL server take shortcuts, and most use the same database structure as the source system.
  4. Many healthcare organizations have unique analysis and reporting requirements, but application vendors develop standard reports that can’t be customized and do not meet an organization’s specific needs.
  5. Because of these unique analysis and reporting requirements, analysts often spend countless hours manually massaging data to make reports user-friendly for information consumers in the organization
