SAS Analytics Tool Selected by Healthcare Firm; Graham Hughes Comments

SAS w-LogoSAS has been selected by a healthcare provider in Oklahoma to supply a visualization tool intended to help the organization analyze large volumes of data across its medical facilities.

Integris Health uses SAS Visual Analytics software to monitor practice trends and resource usage in hospitals, rehabilitation centers, independent living centers, mental health facilities, physician clinics and home health agencies, SAS said Thursday.

Graham Hughes, SAS chief medical officer, said the company aims for Integris to reduce operational costs and improve care quality by using big data management technology.

“Visual analytics is like a GPS to pinpoint and provide speed of reporting to quickly explore data,” he added.

Visual Analytics works to help customers identify patterns, visualize information and disseminate results through a web application or mobile device, according to the company.

With the platform, users can analyze correlations in data and report findings in graphs, charts and animations, SAS says.
