How DarkMatter2bd clients use an associative analytics engine to pull insights from 30+ years of historical data records.
Imagine the challenge of sifting through trillions of rows of healthcare data every day, with billions of new records being generated every year. It’s particularly difficult for pharmaceutical and healthcare decision makers to find the hidden insights within these volumes of information. This is where powerful analytics solutions can cut through the noise to reveal those hidden gems.
Before implementing QlikView to pull insights from their database it took DarkMatter2bd’s clients weeks and months to pull insights from 30+ years of historical data records.
This is where a powerful associative analytics engine has been a savior according to Joe Paciulli, VP Decision Support & Technology for DarkMatter2bd. “Profiling first with QlikView with our large data sets, we were able to sort billions of rows of data into categories we never could before; it is a fantastic way to easily see hidden connections found in the data; ranging in use from disease surveillance to R&D, marketing and sales. We can sort the data by patient conditions, geographic dimensions, diagnosis and medical procedures as well as dimensions on physician affiliations, relationships and specialty.”
“We now have over 75 QVWs or applications covering many therapeutic classes with each application averaging over 2 billion rows and the largest being over 3 billion rows. These applications have saved us time in numerous ways including on pre-launch targeting for clinical trials. Now we can easily do analytics that impacts a product’s time to market. In this case, the process of protocol evaluations and analysis of patient populations for clinical trials has never been easier! Our clients can also perform thought leader mapping, trending and market analytics instantly now with QlikView.”
