Demo Day: Analyzing Hospital Patient Admits with Power BI

Mike Cornell Posted by Mike Cornell

Many mainstream topics and issues surrounding better healthcare revolve around providing better patient care, improved patient health, and reduction in overall costs of care. The ability to effectively glean insights from hospital admits data can lead to actions that tackle all 3 of these issues.

In the video below, we use Microsoft Power BI to analyze hospital inpatient admits and discharge data from the state of New York.


The demo takes us from state level analysis and leads us all the way into insights about individual physicians at specific hospitals. In doing so, we utilize some of the latest features and visualizations in Power BI including Tree Maps, the ability to easily drill through visualizations, the ability to use custom colors based on fields and values, the ability to quickly and easily share your findings with peers, and the ability to ask natural-language questions about the data and get instant answers in the form of visualizations that you can then add to your analysis.
