It’s now one of the nation’s leading healthcare providers, offering patient-centered healthcare with over 3,000 registered beds. Hoping to build off the benefits of an initial solution, the healthcare system’s marketing department recently reached out to BlueGranite to build a data mart, reports, and dashboards that aggregate, summarize, and restructure promotional information from the enterprise data warehouse.

Life Care Centers of America has spent almost half a century as a national leader in skilled nursing care. It also provides top inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services. In order to continue to best serve its 22,000 daily residents, the company embarked on a business intelligence journey with BlueGranite to modernize its data analytics process. Life Care manages over 250 skilled nursing, assisted living, and independent living facilities across 28 states.
