Dimensional Insight Announces Physician Performance Advisor for Hospitals and Health Systems

Turnkey Business Intelligence Application Helps Improve Physician Performance; Drives Better Financial, Patient Safety and Care Quality Outcomes for Providers

ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dimensional Insight, a leading independent provider of dashboard, reporting and analytics software and services today announced Physician Performance Advisor™, a turnkey business intelligence application aimed at improving physician performance, at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference and exhibition at booth #3431. The Physician Performance Advisor (PPA) leverages the power of Dimensional Insight’s best-in-class business intelligence platform, The Diver Solution™, to integrate relevant metrics on physician performance from disparate sources into a single dashboard-based view so that hospital administrators, quality professionals and physicians can monitor, track and analyze data and collaborate on strategies around care process improvement in a timely and proactive manner. It helps healthcare organizations establish routine measures to meet physician performance management requirements and support Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluations (OPPE), physician credentialing, and Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE) goals.

“Healthcare providers are sitting on a goldmine of data but, distilling that data from a variety of sources and formats into actionable and directional information can be an arduous task,” said George Dealy, Vice President of Business Development at Dimensional Insight. “With Physician Performance Advisor, we’ve essentially simplified and expedited the process so that providers can gain value immediately through better data transparency on the quality of care that their practitioners provide. The ability to analyze this information in a timely manner has a profound impact on a provider’s financial performance.”


With Dimensional Insight’s Physician Performance Advisor application, healthcare professionals are empowered with web-based access to interactive, intuitive dashboards and embedded analytics capabilities on current physician performance data. Users can quickly navigate through large volumes of data in a number of subject areas including quality, utilization, patient satisfaction and safety and risk management. Users can take any transaction or statistic and “slice and dice” that data (by organization, by hospital, by department or individual physicians) to identify issues or errors that ultimately resulted in process change. Physicians and administrators can readily view metrics such as mortality, complications, safety performance measures or re-admissions for ad-hoc analysis. Healthcare professionals can compare and contrast individual and group performance to reveal best practices. Administrators, quality professionals and physicians can use the application to identify opportunities for improvement around areas such as length of patient stay and case cost reductions by physician.


Dimensional Insight’s PPA system enables providers to make more informed, timely decisions that drive organizational improvements and advance key healthcare initiatives. PPA automatically updates information and identifies exceptions in data to enable hospitals to better manage the re-credentialing process as well as comply with Joint Commission requirements of OPPE. Providers can use PPA to advance quality goals by evaluating physicians across a range of external and internal standards such as those from CMS, the Joint Commission and third-party vendors. PPA enables hospitals to leverage their existing licensing investment in benchmarking information from organizations such as Premier or Thomson Reuters. Dimensional Insight’s Physician Performance Advisor provides all stakeholders with a common tool to view and analyze performance metrics so that healthcare provider organizations can focus on process improvements in the areas of care quality and patient safety instead of data integrity.


Dimensional Insight’s highly integrated business intelligence suite, The Diver Solution, streamlines the development of role-based performance dashboards, scorecards, key performance indicators (KPIs) and actionable reports within an organization. Dramatic visual-based analysis capabilities make it easy for users to access, share and act on information. Unlike other BI solutions, The Diver Solution does not require high demands on IT staff to build, integrate, deploy or maintain. Hospitals and health systems are able to immediately realize the benefits of next-generation BI tools and better manage the total cost of ownership of their BI applications. The Diver Solution’s healthcare applications include: quality/outcomes, utilization; productivity; patient satisfaction; revenue cycle; disease management; service line reporting; supply chain; physician performance management; staffing/overtime analysis; denials management; and surgery/OR dashboards.
