Making data accessible and ensuring data privacy are essential in today’s healthcare market. But one multinational healthcare organization had a problem: inefficient processes slowed them down. Employees around the organization were left waiting for reports on vital data like admissions, discharges, and bills and collections.
It was time to make data accessible for those who need it—and find a secure way to do it. This healthcare organization found it with Sequel Data Access.
Data Reports—Without the Learning Curve
Green screens and manually coded RPG reports made it difficult for this healthcare organization to train staff to access data in their MEDHOST database. On top of that, they didn’t have in-house RPG programmers, so reports were frequently outsourced. As a result, getting IBM i data reports was a difficult and expensive endeavor.
This healthcare organization saved time in data reporting with Sequel. Regular reports include flash (state of the hospital), intake/admissions, accounts receivable, and general ledger. Previously, producing the same report for 100 different facilities involved 100 separate queries. With Sequel, IT staff only need to create one query to run the same report for 100 different facilities. This ensures consistency across the organization.
Today, reports are readily available to employees via a browser interface. It’s easy for anyone to locate the information they need. Plus, this healthcare organization saves money by avoiding outsourced data reporting.
One Click to Get Data in Microsoft Excel
Business users at this healthcare organization wanted the ability to get IBM i data in Microsoft Excel. This was a difficult endeavor in the days of RPG reports.
Today, Sequel makes it simple. All it takes is one click for business users to download data to Microsoft Excel or to deliver data in an Excel spreadsheet.
Making data accessible was key, but protecting information was paramount.
