DPHS wanted to create an dashboard to understand the overall population health as well as the performance of individual programs within the Division. Some of the challenges were:
- DPHS utilizes IBM Cognos as its BI Reporting platform.
- Local Public Health Entities and New Hampshire Health Organizations utilize the DPHS data for reporting purposes. The organization was dealing with 100’s of reports.
- After obtaining reports, users were unable to manipulate data parameters. This resulted in additional requirements on the SNH DHPS Cognos team.
- Data was not able to meaningfully organized on one platform. Legacy reporting was costly and time consuming with current applications.
