Diver BI to Snowflake Migration for a Major US Hospital

Executive Summary

How much can old legacy systems affect healthcare operations? In the world of healthcare, critical decisions must be made with precision, without the right information, these decisions can be delayed costing real lives. A distinguished hospital grappled with a similar situation, an antiquated Diver BI platform. Operational inefficiencies and the constraints of legacy systems cast a pervasive shadow, resulting in disruptions across critical facets of patient care, resource allocation, and financial management. This cascading effect translated into delayed decision-making, compromised patient satisfaction, and suboptimal resource allocation.

To solve this challenge, Factspan conducted a thorough assessment, unveiling the extensive impact of the challenge. The strategic migration to Snowflake emerged as a linchpin solution, addressing not only the immediate data-related obstacles but also remedying the broader operational disruptions. The seamless transition of over 500 SQL codes and relocation of vital dashboards to Tableau, coupled with meticulous post-production support, not only rectified data issues but served as a foundational platform for operational resilience.
