Epic Radar Dashboard and Reporting Optimization

At Culbert we find that a robust reporting strategy leveraging Epic tools to their fullest capability creates an organizational environment that promotes self-service and collaboration. From Radar Dashboards, Reporting Workbench, Clarity Reports and now Universes and Data Marts, there exist advanced capabilities to evolve your reporting program. Evaluating and designing strategies with a combination of these tools is a focus of our practice.
Common Findings
There are many opportunities to enhance the reporting structure to support end-­‐ user productivity, operational management and executive oversight. We focus on ensuring the foundation of a mature structure for utilization of the tools Epic provides. Typical findings include the following:
  • More than 50% opportunity to design improved Radar dashboards to support operations
  • Continued duplication and report customization limiting bandwidth of reporting team to focus on self-service development
  • Poor ETL management and opportunities to leverage improved Epic templates with Cogito and data cubes
