Midwest Anesthesia's TARGIT story

"I have a background in computer science, but no other BI tool I’ve used is as fast or as friendly as TARGIT."

Simba Blackman, Healthcare data analyst, anesthesia associates of ann arbor

With a highly regarded reputation for superior care and service, Midwest Anesthesia needed a solution to the mountains of patient and facility data within their systems that needed constant monitoring and evaluation. As healthcare facilitators, security was of utmost importance. And as an organization in which metrics can shift dramatically in an instant, they needed a way to gain insight into their data on-demand and in real-time.

Midwest Anesthesia has a number of back-end and supplementary databases that collect and store information such as patient claims, billing information, patient satisfaction scores measuring services and doctors, and doctor peer quality scores. Years of data is meticulously culled, with 20-30 million rows of data per year. With such a massive amount of data for the system to sift though, Simba Blackman, Healthcare Data Analyst at Anesthesia Associates of Ann Arbor, says it would typically take two to three weeks to create a single report.

The company turned to TARGIT Decision Suite's analytics for the services industry solution to help them gain better insight into their data. When TARGIT Chief Solutions Architect Boe Pederson got a look under the hood of Midwest Anesthesia’s systems, he knew the best solution for aggregating and visualizing the company’s enormous amount of data would be with TARGIT InMemory, TARGIT Decision Suite’s in-memory solution, powering the data integration into TARGIT Decision Suite.
