The health care industry has been collecting data for years. Take advantage of the opportunity to tap into the value of this available data to augment strategic initiatives with Cerner’s enterprise data warehouse (EDW), HealtheEDWSM.

Explore a client use case

Ranked as top three vendor for both analytic product vision and capabilities in
Chilmark’s 2017 Healthcare Analytics Market Trends Report.

Built on a big data platform, Cerner’s EDW solution, HealtheEDW, provides users a variety of data transformation and analytic visualization tools to meet your unique, analytic needs.


Onboard data from any source

Creating a strategic plan requires objective data. Cerner’s EDW is built on a cloud-based, big data platform that enables you to onboard disparate data from any source.

Users can leverage a variety of embedded data transformation tools to flatten and prepare the data to be loaded into analytic visualization tools.

Once the data is prepared, users can load data into Tableau or SAP Business Objects analytic visualization tools to create robust dashboards and reports. Both Tableau and SAP Business Objects enable users to dive into and interact with the data beyond rows and columns.

Once data is onboarded, we make querying your data simple by doing the heavy lifting of aggregating, cleansing and normalizing your data to a standard terminology. This process enables users the ability to search across all data sources simultaneously, regardless of native code language or proprietary codes.

From accessing data to working with data transformation and analytic visualization tools, users are enabled to work from a single application. Being empowered to work from a single application reduces the inefficiencies of managing multiple tools or toggling between several applications along with enabling a seamless user experience.
