CitiusTech has partnered with 3M Health Information Systems to integrate the 3M™ Healthcare Data Dictionary with CitiusTech’s BI-Clinical healthcare business intelligence framework to combine the data aggregation, analytics and reporting capabilities of BI-Clinical with comprehensive medical vocabulary of the 3M Healthcare Data Dictionary. This will enable BI-Clinical to better exchange, query, report on healthcare data and strengthen features like clinical and administrative decision support and population health reporting, outcomes research (data warehousing, population queries, etc.), and regulatory reporting ("meaningful use,” CMS/PQRI, JCAHO, etc.).
