Deerfield Beach, Fla.-based Sentry Data Systems rolled out HealthBIT, a healthcare business intelligence platform for hospitals. The product, the company says, provides operational, financial, and clinical visibility to hospitals by qualifying, aggregating, and comparing financial data.

HealthBIT combines disparate data sources and constructs a longitudinal electronic patient and physician health record that can be queried, Sentry says. Through the application of stock analytic tools, organizations can hone in on disruptive clinical or financial trends, it touts.

According to the company, the product includes a medical protocol engine that provides users a framework to construct and view the results of clinical protocols within their organization, a pharmacy safety module that identifies areas of pharmacy procurement concern, a pharmaceutical cost analysis engine, and a geographical analytical tool.
