Michigan's Largest Healthcare Provider Using Epic


    Lengthy manual impact analysis: The client is a chain of hospitals that uses Epic system for recording its patient health information (also known as Electronic Medical Records or EMR). Every quarter Epic upgrades the application. Whenever this happens the client’s IT team also has to upgrade their Epic version. Only then they can stay Epic compliant and leverage its full functionality. Moreover, since it is a large organization, the client has a lot of custom downstream systems and reports which take data from Epic. So earlier, to upgrade they either had to take a high risk of downstream impact or delay the upgrade to do manual impact analysis.

  • Inconsistent business definitions: Secondly, this company has been built by acquisition and mergers. Hence, they didn’t have consistent KPIs and definitions of business terms across the board. So they could not compare data between different units. This required a comprehensive data go vernance program.

    OvalEdge is a data lineage solution that automatically finds this impact and does much more. The client deployed OvalEdge and crawled various data sources like Epic, Clarity, QlikView, Tableau. and SAP Business Objects and build the data lineage from source systems to reporting software. Now finding the impact took a fraction of the time it took earlier.
