Company: Intermountain Healthcare

Annual Return: 1,484%

Project: Intermountain built a data warehouse to serve as a single source of information that would combine integrated data about the organization's health services and administration. More than 900 users access Intermountain's data warehouse regularly, and the system processes 80,000 queries a month. The primary goal is to provide employees with insight into the operational costs surrounding the delivery of health-care services and identify best practices.

Benefits: Saved $600,000 on materials management and $650,000 annually on quality assurance reporting; reduced the time needed to produce quality assurance reports by 16,000 hours a year.
