About Choice Analytics
Choice Analytics is a powerful tool that allows a practice to produce custom reports against key business metrics using Microsoft Excel. For each requesting site, iSalus creates a data model in SSAS that is repopulated with data on a recurring basis. An Office Data Connection file (.odc) is then made available for download.
By opening this file with Excel, the user opens a connection to the site’s data model, at which point they can use the Excel Pivot Table features to create custom reports. Click here to learn more about how to use Microsoft Pivot Tables.
Please note that these reports do not need to be re-created each time new data is needed—rather, the data in the report can be refreshed from Excel, meaning that these custom reports only need to be defined once.
iSalus currently supports three separate data models in Choice Analytics: the Billing and Scheduling packages, as well as a new Billing package that comes with usability improvements. The new Billing package will be slowly rolled out to coexist with, and eventually replace, the original Billing package. For more information, please choose from the below:
- Billing Analytics
- New Billing Analytics
- Scheduler Analytics
