The role of business intelligence in modern enterprises cannot be understated. In a corporate world rife with competition, and set precariously in a web of volatile factors such as the economy, business intelligence can prevent failure or prepare an entity for any incoming blow. Charles Phillips and Infor continue to uphold their goal of providing the necessary tools and applications that can help today’s enterprises gain an edge over loss and competition—the BI add-on module being their latest offering.

The said module is set to add new functions to Lawson Healthcare that will enhance its users’ experience and maximize the value of their software investment. The BI add-on module extends the analytic and reporting capabilities of the Lawson Healthcare Revenue Management suite, and simplifies complex revenue and billing data access using popular tools like Microsoft Excel and Internet Explorer. This allows business analysts to create queries faster and without requiring IT assistance. Additionally, the module uses analytic cubes to store business rules in order to simplify common requests. It also separates reporting requests from the production system to reduce impact on processing and data entry.

Through the Lawson Analytics for Healthcare Service, Charles Phillips and Infor help fill the information gap that is apparent in the healthcare industry - 44% of 700 healthcare professionals that were surveyed by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS12) reported to have little or no access to analytic information. With this service, a hospital can see supply and drug expenses as a percentage of net patient revenue or compare productivity by department, analyze the total budget remaining on all ongoing IT projects, or find out if the organization is meeting its supplier diversity objectives. Data about healthcare-specific KPIs in financial management, labor productivity, project accounting, and supply chain can help healthcare organizations measure, improve, and monitor financial and operational performance.
