How SAS® Can Help
SAS enables health care providers to transform diverse data sources for analysis so they can accurately predict and improve outcomes. With SAS, you can:
- Access and integrate patient data from virtually any source in any format, then transform, cleanse and standardize the data so it is ready for analysis.
- Enhance the accuracy of predictions about outcomes with a streamlined data mining process that uses highly accurate predictive and descriptive models based on innovative algorithms to proactively scan both structured and unstructured text for safety issues, treatment variations and more.
- Uncover hidden insights in unstructured data sources, such as patient letters and physician notes, by using text mining capabilities to proactively scan unstructured text for insights on indications, patient/provider concerns and other issues that may have an impact on the patient's care.
- Improve your planning capabilities by using predictive models to forecast demand for services so you can plan staffing resources and service locations accordingly to keep both patient satisfaction and revenue high.
