Bundamedik Healthcare System of Indonesia is using IBM Big Data and Analytics to transform the administration and financial management systems of the first hospital in its network — RSIA Bunda Jakarta.
IBM will support the hospital to use analytics to assist in decision making for critical financial business processes, such as budgeting, reporting, scorecarding, analysis and forecasting.
Some of the immediate benefits will be from more accurate view on the overall spending and budget status. RSIA Bunda Jakarta will utilize the IBM IT support to aid in its growth plans by ensuring the resources of the hospital are aligned with corporate objectives.
Precisely, the hospital utilized IBM Big Data and Analytics technology including InfoSphere DataStage, and IBM Cognos TM1 and IBM Cognos Business Intelligence to integrate systems in the administration and finance departments.
IBM in a statement said the deployment of the integrated data system has cut cost and time spent on administration and budgeting processes as Bundamedik’s personnel no longer need to move batches of data around manually.
This apart, the unified IBM data warehouse allows Bundamedik to automatically collect and retrieve data from discrete and separate sources, shortening the process to complete business reports from days to minutes.
IBM said Bundamedik can expedite approvals regarding budget planning, while applying the integrated scorecards and strategy management capabilities to monitor business performance.
For the second phase of the project, IBM will help Bundamedik implement a patient-centered integrated service solution to allow patients to get medical services from all of the healthcare provider’s branches through an integrated portal solution.
