The idea for QuikMetrix was born in the healthcare sector, and when the intensity and importance of measures management in the healthcare industry is considered – it’s no wonder that a solution like QuikMetrix took hold there first.
Healthcare organizations are driven to reduce cost all while expanding and improving services offered. Of course QuikMetrix contributes greatly to those two endeavors because of it’s rapid implementation turn time and affordable cost, but perhaps the greatest benefit of the approach is the ability for non-IT resources to define new measures and even deploy new portals – at will.
The ease of use and repeatability of QuikMetrix reduces an organizations demand on valuable and limited IT resources – yet pushes astonishing BI capabilities out to the masses with little effort. Potentially, any manager that needs information on their area of responsibility can be given access to a QuikMetrix portal – or even have a specific business intelligence portal deployed just for their area.
Because QuikMetrix is metadata-driven, the business definitions for each portal’s collection of measures is held outside the system in what’s known as a Measures Catalog. This is a hugely important differentiator for QuikMetrix because it means that the intellectual property behind any given measure can easily be shared, compared, adopted, tailored and re-used. Users, IT and the organization as a whole – have access to the Measures Catalog and can review and investigate the logic behind all measures defined to QuikMetrix. That’s hugely important in Healthcare. Compare the QuikMetrix Measures Catalog to our competition where the business rules are embedded deep in business intelligence code or somewhere in the program stream that feeds the data warehouse. QuikMetrix emerges as an inventive and elegant solution in that respect.
Healthcare organizations need to give their business managers the ability to display, chart, and drill down into key performance indicators (KPI’s) on a frequent and routine basis.
