Qlik and Nordic Partner to Bring Deepened Visibility and Insights to EHR Customers

Qlik Sense delivers interactive visualization of operational and clinical planning across healthcare systems to support meaningful decisions

Qlik®, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in visual analytics, today announced its partnership with Nordic, a trusted advisor to healthcare systems based in Madison, WI. Nordic is leveraging Qlik Sense® to bring insights to clients through flexible and interactive visualizations to optimize performance across financial and clinical operations.

Nordic, ranked #1 by KLAS for Epic Services, seeks solutions that can simplify the process of getting from data to decision. Healthcare systems benefit from federated reporting models where their users can query data directly instead of waiting weeks for IT to respond to a request. In addition, organizations are asking questions that can’t be answered using just the data in their EHRs. They need an easier way to merge outside data such as claims, supplies, or social media. With Qlik Sense, Nordic combines its healthcare IT expertise in best practices and operational processes with visual analytics software that puts user-friendly data in the hands of the practitioners — right where they want it — within the Epic environment.

“The partnership between Nordic and Qlik brings together two industry leaders in the healthcare space, enabling mutual clients to dive deeper into their organizational data and uncover insights to inform decision making,” said Qlik Vice President of Healthcare Sales in North America, Brad Copeland. “Together, Qlik and Nordic bring an unmatched expertise in healthcare and Epic environments, along with top-notch quality services and software, enabling healthcare customers to truly become agile as they face unprecedented change.”

By partnering with Qlik, Nordic continues to bring the next level of service to its existing and future clients. Not only will the partnership increase the speed in delivering accurate, actionable data, but also offer a new, combined Qlik-Nordic community in which to share best practices and innovative approaches to data and analytics.

“Arming our clients’ clinicians and operations staff with reliable data at their fingertips is critical to their ability to analyze and make decisions in real time,” said Nordic’s VP of Business Line Development Matt Schaefer. “Qlik delivers deeper insights to our clients. The visual data and analysis tools empower them to make data-driven decisions in a way that’s integrated seamlessly with their EHR and their workflows.”
