Second, unlike other business intelligence software that focuses only on one or two functions, vitalsBI provides a 360° view of your entire business: Data from your accounting system, statistics from your EMR, budget spreadsheet information, MDS files, CRM insights, time tracking and skillset data, even Google Analytics, can be viewed and analyzed. Third, vitalsBI was built by technologists and a consortium of healthcare leaders to be sure it meets the unique business, regulatory and patient care needs of the healthcare industry.
