The fundamental element in that statement was better solutions. How do you make sure
you are delivering better solutions
to your end users with this enormous amount of data? To learn a bit more, I spent some time with Brian Jacobson,
a Qlik Solutions Consultant for Healthcare. Brian has been with Qlik for over
three years, and prior to that, a healthcare software consultant for another three
years. His mission at Qlik is about delivering solutions to our healthcare
Brian explained that most of the customers he worked with have some idea of what business problem they are trying to solve – or what KPI they are trying to gain insights on – with a goal of determining if there is a need to take different action. In the world of healthcare, maybe it’s around quality of care, reimbursement rates, or infection management. Regardless of the topic, delivering better analytic solutions often starts with who you bring in to help the end users define and design their solution – i.e., the consultant.
Brian’s perspective of a good solutions consultant should be that they not only have a background in the specific business topic, but also a deep understanding in the specific technology that it will be delivered on. In his case, Brian understands healthcare and has developed many healthcare applications on Qlik.
