Nowadays, data analysis is getting more and more important also in health environments, because medical teams need to obtain statistical information when monitoring patients’ conditions. This is especially true in e-health systems, where patients are de-hospitalized and followed through remote controls. In this context, the implementation of a data warehouse, which automatically collects daily monitoring data stored in medical records and, then, provides historical information about patients, supports medical teams when performing data analyses devoted both to discover hidden data correlations and to optimize health business processes.

Abstract

Nowadays, data analysis is getting more and more important also in health environments, because medical teams need to obtain statistical information when monitoring patients’ conditions. This is especially true in e-health systems, where patients are de-hospitalized and followed through remote controls. In this context, the implementation of a data warehouse, which automatically collects daily monitoring data stored in medical records and, then, provides historical information about patients, supports medical teams when performing data analyses devoted both to discover hidden data correlations and to optimize health business processes. In this paper, we present the data warehouse developed for UBI-CARE, a project whose aim is to support medical teams in the remote management of patients affected by peritoneal dialysis and chronic heart failure.
