Premier brings together more than 2,900 U.S. hospitals and nearly 100,000 other providers. The company’s database contains data on 1 in every 3 discharges nationwide. It handles roughly 2.5 million real-time clinical transactions a day and approximately $40 billion in annual purchasing data.

Aggregating all of this patient data quickly as dashboards that let administrators and peers compare across providers and hospitals, drilling down by patients, diagnoses, procedures, and resources is a serious data challenge.

In this case study, Premier’s Mary Ann Wayer looks at how the company creates real-time dashboards atop big data infrastructure, letting hospitals explore a nation’s healthcare in a few clicks.
