Clinical Data Reporting

The increased use of electronic applications has exponentially increased the volume of data at Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC). This data must be transformed to usable and relevant information that the WCMC community can rely on to make critical decisions that affect their respective group's daily operation, performance, and efficiency. 

The Physician Organization Information Services (POIS) and Financial Services (POFS) Data Warehousing and Reporting groups, using Business Intelligence and expertise in technical reporting principles, are committed to assisting the WCMC community in the development and support of reporting needs. Generated reports are consolidated from a variety of clinical, billing, and administrative sources, primarily Epic, to provide data relationships that were previously unavailable. These reports provide departments or groups a comprehensive view of their data and enable informed decision making, which translates into:

  • Improved patient care
  • Increase physician productivity
  • Increased revenue
  • Cost reduction
