David: Qlik has recently acquired Idevio for GeoAnalytics, further enhancing the platform. Will you be showing healthcare examples of this at the show?
Dalton: Absolutely! We have recently developed a great example of GeoAnalytics using publicly available data from the CDC. The app looks at social vulnerability using mapping to pinpoint population needs based on a whole host of factors, things like age, housing, language, transport availability, insurance status, and income level. Visitors to the booth will be able to interact with the maps to uncover population insights like never before! For those not familiar with the Idevio technology, we have a great intro video available here:
David: We have so many powerful use cases of the Qlik platform in health, what are the most exciting opportunities from your perspective and will we be showcasing these at HIMSS?
Dalton: Having worked in the health system for many years, there is one key element to success which many people overlook – governance! There is a huge issue in health systems related to trust – trust in the data and trust in the way the measures of success are calculated. Qlik has focused a ton of energy trying to help solve this problem – governance is a core capability in Qlik Sense and with the introduction of master items, we have been able to drive a governed approach to analytics which removes that huge barrier to engagement.
Rather than going from spreadsheet anarchy to visualization anarchy, Qlik enables self-service analytics which everyone trusts and understands. Speak to anyone on the booth about governance and we can demonstrate the power of this incredibly important differentiator in the Qlik platform.
Finally, I’d like to mention embedded analytics – it’s clear that putting the insight where people work is key to driving adoption and success. Qlik has a uniquely simple and elegant way of doing this – ask us about mashups on the booth and we’d be delighted to show you some great examples!
David: Thank you for sharing your insights Dalton, I’m looking forward to HIMSS and I’m sure the visitors to Booth 1035 will be as excited as we are when they see the art of the possible!
