Data Mart / Decision Analytics Reporting Tool (DART)

The Medical Group maintains a repository or "data mart" of clinical, financial, and operations data. The purpose of this data mart is to provide the individual clinical departments the information needed for regular and ad-hoc reporting.

At its core, the Medical Group Data Mart (MGDM) consists of a daily extraction from the APeX Clarity repository. Data extractions from APeX Clarity include Resolute Professional Billing, Cadence (Scheduling), OpTime (OR Scheduling) and a limited subset of Resolute Hospital Billing data. The MGDM also includes data from the legacy billing systems IDX and SMS, and clinic expense data from the accounting system (Dunn & Bradstreet).

On a monthly basis, details from the database are summarized and saved in the form of several multi-dimensional reporting "cubes", each cube addressing a different reporting function. A list of the cubes currently available can be found under the Analysis Studio directory.

The Medical Group administers the database as well as the business intelligence (BI) tools users need to gain access to the data. The Decision Analytics Reporting Tool (DART) system is comprised of a few core components of the Cognos (IBM) Business Intelligence Suite of products.

Gaining Access to the warehouse is simple.

First verify your license availability with the Medical Group. Then, once your license has been verified, complete a "MGDM/DART User Account Form". Finally, attend the Cognos training program conducted by the Medical Group.

NOTE: A license cannot be given without first completing the Medical Group Data Mart and Decision Analytics Reporting Tool (MGDM/DART) User Account Form and attending the Cognos Training. Instructions for filling out the form.

Training classes teach users the basics of the Medical Group DART tools, and provide a general overview of the content available for reporting.

Steps to gain access to the MGDM/DART:

1) Check license availability

2) MGDM/DART User Account Form

3) MGDM/DART Training
