Article Features Kaleida Health’s Use of OBIEE to Combat the Flu

Kaleida Health’s Flu Monitoring Dashboard was developed quickly using Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition to provide insightful reporting regarding patients with the flu, including H1N1.

The innovative use of Oracle Business Intelligence was recently detailed in a article. Kaleida used their Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) dashboard technology for analyzing emergency room visits where people arrived at a clinic with flu-like symptoms, tracking various metrics that included what time of day or night the visit took place. With this information, Kaleida was able to effectively calculate when a spike may occur so they could start diverting patients with flu-like symptoms to another clinic, minimizing the possibility of flu patients infecting others in a crowded waiting room.
