Thorough Data Analysis at Record Speed

A pharmaceutical company used IHD for analysis to meet a pressing conference deadline

Analysts are often under pressure to quickly deliver results, lacking sufficient time to design and implement research and analysis. IHD enables rapid data analysis that cuts research time down to hours instead of days or weeks.

A Northeast Pharmaceutical company’s Health Outcomes division needed to build a new study to evaluate treatment adherence and outcomes for patients with neurologic disorders quickly in order to meet an imminent conference deadline.

Using IHD and leveraging BHE’s team of experts, the client was able to design and complete the analysis within two hours, and the abstract was delivered within one week.

Complex Data Analysis without Programming Expertise

BHE helped train a non-programmer to conduct sophisticated analysis with IHD

Many organizations don’t have readily available access to programmers, but most complex analyses require programming expertise. IHD’s easy-to-use interface allows non-programmers to quickly learn to use the platform and conduct sophisticated data analysis.

A pharmaceutical client needed to conduct complex analyses using their licensed data but did not have access to a programmer. In just a few hours, the BHE team trained a non-programmer on the client’s team to use the IHD platform.

The client was able to cost-effectively staff their team, completing the project in house versus needing to outsource.

Generating New Insights through Real-Time Collaboration

An academic medical center used IHD to collaboratively brainstorm new ideas

Traditional analysis of large, complex data sets requires a lengthy process for analyzing the data and getting it to a usable state. IHD’s ability to rapidly process, organize and display the data enables analysts to efficiently build analyses and make these available to entire teams to enable robust, collaborative idea generation.

The client, an academic medical center, wanted to better understand the predictors of hospital re-admission for Alzheimer’s Disease patients. Using IHD, the team was able to review research results, brainstorm, and then refine their research—all with extreme efficiency.

The client was able to generate solutions they may not have conceived of otherwise, and they cut the time spent on the project from their anticipated two weeks down to fifteen hours.
