Description: This workshop will focus on techniques that HIM Professionals can use to analyze complex healthcare data sets: Microsoft Power Pivot and Power Query. These tools are built-in to Excel and are important components of Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (BI) suite. They enable HIM Professionals to integrate data from multiple software products into one spreadsheet. If you’ve ever had to analyze data held in different files and formats, then Power Pivot and Power Query can address this situation. These tools increase your data analysis efficiency while minimizing redundant data entry. By the time you’ve completed this workshop, you’ll be in a position to analyze complex administrative, clinical and financial data sets without having to involve external consultants or IT staff. The demands on HIM Professionals to conduct complex data analysis are increasing exponentially. Power Pivot and Power Query can help you to address this critical need. No previous knowledge of Microsoft Excel is required, although some exposure to the concept of Pivot Tables is helpful.
