Answers at the speed of thought!

Designing Data Assets

The keystones are the data assets, deep and broad like any hospital; organized for fast, relevant and intuitive selection & comparison. Custom metrics and exclusive ratings and rankings allow users to become the masters of answers.

Categories of National Standards

The data are sourced from hospital submitted filings ensuring timely and accurate documentation about factual utilization of care services to all patients in the inpatient and ambulatory settings.

Quality & Safety Metrics

Data are based on a full census of all-payer patient activity, with some measures such as patient experience being survey-based and statistically representative of all patient activity.

Operational & Financial Metrics

The hospital database continually expands as updated data and new methods link big data files to provider performance. Data about population health, physician performance and episodes of care will link a setting longitudinally across care locations and time.

Platform Flexibility

The Franklin:BI platform is newly designed and architected to address the big data needs of today’s health systems. It continues to expand and be enhanced with interrelated data content (such as physicians affiliated with hospitals) driven by provider relationships,  population-based burdens, and clinical utilization & health risk.

The Open Content Approach

The platform allows for export or extraction of data for further research and analysis, delivering an “open content” approach for teams with broader interests or data needs. Utilizing APIs that source data for Franklin Trust, the BI needs of users are kept current with timely and frequent updates to existing data along with a commitment to expand the laboratory of unexplored data.
