A Picture is Worth a Thousand Queries

Medical University of South Carolina
Presented by Jennifer Hoel & Andy Gelasco 

Session Description

MUSC is leveraging IQ graphical reports to dramatically improve Preventive Maintenance completion rates and overall Work Order completion. Previously, we had been encouraging work management processes through a multitude of queries written by our AiM support team and manually added to supervisors’ and managers’ WorkDesks. While this was helpful and allowed supervisors to see Work Orders in various statuses and by assigned technician, it wasn’t helping them assess real-time needs. By creating graphic IQ Dashboards from custom IQ data sources, we are now providing an intuitive tool that allows supervisors to quickly assess Work Order progress and manage technicians and workload in real-time. As an added bonus, by using the AiM Report Manager, we can filter the Dashboards by Role and push them to the people who need them, freeing our AiM support team from managing hundreds of queries.

We will show samples of our PM Completion and Open Work Order IQ dashboards and walk through their IQ Data Sources, as well as discuss the work processes that they drive.


Learning Objectives

  1. Use bold, visual graphics to drive real processes. Arrange the data in a clear and simple graphs so managers can understand it intuitively.
  2. Leverage IQ by beginning with a concise data source. Don’t confuse the goal with excess information. Don’t make your team dig for information and don’t show extraneous details.
  3. Take advantage of the WorkDesk. Push IQ Dashboards and Reports as ‘Reports’ in AiM, rather than manually managing queries.
