Pentaho, creator of open source business intelligence suite, has announced that Loma Linda University Health Care has deployed Pentaho for business intelligence. The university is using the OLAP capabilities of Pentaho analysis services as part of their overall management of more than half a million patients and more than six hundred physicians.
Finance and operations staff at Loma Linda University Health Care (LLUHC) use the application to analyze service delivery and billing by a number of business dimensions, including time periods, billing groups, providers, and more. Users are able to interactively analyze and explore the information, including drilling down to the individual patient level. The application integrates data from a number of internal systems including the Intersystems Cache post-relational database. The business intelligence application runs on a Microsoft Windows Server using a Microsoft SQL Server database.
Darrin Blocker in decision support services at LLUHC, said: Pentaho customer support has been exceptional.
This is a strategic application at LLUHC, and working with Pentaho has accelerated our deployment and improved our overall application delivery.
Lance Walter, vice president of marketing for Pentaho, said: Loma Linda University Health Care is a great example of an organization who upgraded their business intelligence capabilities with the peace-of-mind of professional training and subscription services as well as the lower costs and lower risk of commercial open source business intelligence.
