Greenbrier & Russel Launch Patient Intelligence Registry For Healthcare

Originally published February 10, 2006

Greenbrier & Russel, a business and technology services firm, has fused its industry  practices in business intelligence and data warehousing to create an information framework that will systemize clinical, business and operational data for improved outcomes and decision making by healthcare organizations.
Greenbrier & Russel’s Patient Intelligence Registry will support programs such as disease management, outcomes management, clinical performance and process improvement, cost and waste reduction, quality accreditation, predictive analytics, and provide data for healthcare research.
“Patient registries have a long history in a wide variety of healthcare and health-related organizations, but have been overlooked for their potential value,” said Scott Wanless, who leads Greenbrier & Russel’s business intelligence healthcare unit. “This is especially critical in times of rapidly rising healthcare costs, increased demand for information by those paying for healthcare services, as well as increasing demand for data to support quality, safety and compliance needs.”
According to Wanless, the business driver of a Patient Intelligence Registry is the increasing number and scope of clinical oversight organizations (patient safety, efficiency, affordability), as well as the demand for information from healthcare buyers and other advocacy groups.
“Healthcare management has been clamoring for ‘clinical-style’ evidence to support product and service-line decisions, location and access decisions, support quality accreditation and marketing efforts,” Wanless added. “The bottom line is greater efficiency, reduced waste, better staffing and revenue prediction.”
