RALEIGH, N.C., March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of North Carolina (UNC) Medical Center and its partner, Roundtable Analytics, Inc., have recently launched a full-spectrum analytics program to support the flagship emergency department (ED) in Chapel Hill, NC. As an academic, Level I Trauma Center, UNC's main ED faces the challenge of seeing nearly 70,000 patients annually all while educating its resident physicians. But this tremendous operational challenge is now being approached with analytics, from a comprehensive understanding of past and current performance to predictive simulation modeling to routinely support key management decisions such as staffing, treatment area utilization, and much more.
Working closely with UNC's ED leadership team, Roundtable Analytics, Inc., customized its data reporting, visualization and predictive analytics suite to meet UNC's needs. Roundtable's full analytics offering leverages the Epic data UNC already collects and stores each day in Epic's Clarity database, with no need to integrate into the live electronic medical record (EMR). To ensure accuracy and consistency, Roundtable Analytics statisticians customize an automatic processing layer that checks, cleans and standardizes the daily data. Roundtable's automated data processing is essential for gaining accurate insights from ubiquitous EMR data, and serves as the basis for powerful, on-demand analytics.
"It's fantastic. We have access to data we've never seen before, whether it's yesterday's performance or last year's metrics," said Dr. Jane Brice, chair of UNC Emergency Medicine. "My entire leadership team can interact with the data one minute and then simulate potential management changes for our emergency department in response to what we see."
