Sacramento, California ... March 24, 2006... New Generation Software, Inc. (NGS), a long-time, respected developer of proven software for mid-market companies, now offers hospitals and clinics a comprehensive query, reporting, and analytic component for their application software infrastructure. The NGS Healthcare Data Mart and Analytical Reporting Solution for the IBM iSeries® and i5™ provides administrators, managers, and healthcare professionals with reports, dashboards, spreadsheets, and Web presentations to support the effective monitoring of financial, clinical, performance, and quality measures.
The NGS Healthcare Data Mart and Analytical Reporting Solution easily integrates with any iSeries-based hospital and clinic business software. However, customers of the Siemens MedSeries4 software can also license an extended edition of the solution, including a set of “real-time” dashboards and reports that are built directly over the MedSeries4 database. These real-time reports and presentations include admission and discharge tracking, room and bed status, and patient census information. (For samples of these reports, click here.)
Outputs are generated from a DB2 UDB-based data mart that can be maintained and customized using the NGS-IQ™ business intelligence and data warehousing software on the iSeries. Users can simply click on an icon for data output to Microsoft Excel® and Access®, Acrobat® PDF, drillable HTML, multi-dimensional and graphical presentations from NGS-IQ’s SmartView™ OLAP module, or interactive Web dashboards created with the NGS Business Performance Dashboard. By making accurate information readily available, the NGS Healthcare Data Mart and Reporting Solution enables enhanced decision making and practices at the point of care and beyond.
“We designed this solution to meet the needs of a broad range of clients in the healthcare industry, particularly mid-sized hospitals and clinics,” explains NGS’ Healthcare Solutions Manager, Betty Vernon. “These customers are under tremendous pressure to use their human resources more effectively and improve quality, but they often lack the financial means to license and implement a data warehousing and analytical reporting solution. Our model offers a realistic solution these organizations can cost-justify, implement, and begin using quickly,” says Vernon.
The NGS Healthcare Data Mart and Analytical Reporting solution is supported by a specially designed training and implementation program lead by NGS’ staff of iSeries and healthcare professionals.
With over 20,000 iSeries users across the globe, NGS has been an industry leader since 1982 in developing high performance, field-proven software for midrange users and is an Advanced Member of IBM PartnerWorld for Developers. The cost-effective, scalable NGS-IQ product line is an IBM-approved business intelligence solution in the “IBM Application Development Tools Network for iSeries” and a designated IBM ServerProven® Solution.
