LOS ANGELES, CA--Lister Technologies, Inc., the innovation leader in healthcare performance management, today introduced the first generation of the Lister HITAM™ healthcare business intelligence solution.
Designed to rapidly streamline the integration of disparate financial, clinical and operational data silos within healthcare organizations, HITAM gives hospitals one, single view into their true organizational performance for improved patient safety, cost intelligence and causal analysis.
"Today's smaller hospitals are faced with a complex and exhaustive infrastructure of disparate data sources," said Michael Lock, senior research analyst - business intelligence, Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company. "There is a clear need for more efficient processes coupled with the appropriate technologies to allow for greater visibility and deeper analysis of the crucial data residing in these source systems. By bridging multiple data repositories, hospitals can have the comprehensive insight they need to better manage the high cost of service delivery, while better improving patient safety, cost intelligence and causal analysis for overall patient satisfaction."
Lister HITAM is a prepackaged business intelligence solution designed for rapid deployment. It's comprehensive and flexible framework provides a holistic view into healthcare IT data management by spanning the multiple data applications and infrastructures that comprise today's typical hospital environment, regardless of their operating system or platform. Through logical data models and customizable reports, HITAM measures, analyzes and predicts business performance so that healthcare organizations can have the data integrity and consistency they need for effective revenue cycle management, greater operational efficiency and regulatory compliance.
HITAM has been developed with over 500 customizable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that support Financial, Claims, Operational and Clinical processes. With extensive data models that cover all functional areas of the business, the solution performs a multi dimensional analysis of data with the flexibility and customization ease required to support the needs of even the smallest IT staffs. Resulting information and predictive analysis is presented in customizable reports and dashboards designed for all levels of the organization.

"Our infrastructure has a lot of complex business reporting and a high volume of analytics requests," said Eric Schlumper, director, IT & Online Operations, M|C Communications. "Lister's business intelligence solutions have helped us fulfill these needs with great efficiency and speed. We no longer have to do much manual manipulation of data and files to achieve the reporting we need, so turning around requests, both internally and externally, is much faster than ever before."
"We understand the pressures today's hospitals face when it comes to making the decisions required for improving cost management, quality of care and patient satisfaction," said Srinivasa Gopalan, CEO and founder, Lister Technologies.
