Hospitals are increasingly adopting business intelligence (BI) solutions to enable efficient patient throughput and improve profit margins.

BI solutions help retrieve and store data in a common repository and in a cost-effective manner.

Doctors can also get a greater visibility and unified view of patients from admission to discharge, helping to organise hospital staff schedules and improve patient safety.

Onward Systems chief executive officer Rajat Sharma said that BI cuts down on the upfront capital expenditure, reports.

Sharma said that BI solutions can help manage hospital space more efficiently and can save hospitals millions of dollars per year.
