The BI Collaborative Completes BI/Analytics Platform Implementation for Valley Community Services


Pittsburgh, PA (December 20, 2021) – The BI Collaborative, a business intelligence and data solution company for Human Services Organizations, has implemented its BI/Analytics Platform for new client Valley Community Services (VCS). The midsize provider of residential and community services for consumers with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) partnered with The BI Collaborative to transform its data into actionable information and generate a Decision Management platform for every level of its organization.

The partnership with The BI Collaborative enabled VCS to connect data from disparate applications, including Excel spreadsheets, to create a complete Decision Management platform featuring 13 different modules, including Finance, Productivity, Utilization, Incident Management, Residential Occupancy, Health Tracking, SIS/CSAS Management, Census/Demographics, Quality & Pay for Performance, Human Resources, EVV Tracking, Covid-19, and Executive Reporting.

“The BI Collaborative BI/Analytics Platform has eliminated 90 percent of the manual efforts we once spent organizing, analyzing and reporting our data,” says G.N. Janes, Executive Director of Valley Community Services.

Implementation of The BI Collaborative/Analytics platform was executed in four, 12-week stages providing an incremental ROI for VCS at each stage of deployment. This proven, budget-friendly methodology also enabled the organization to prioritize module deployment based on their immediate needs and complete implementation in 11 months.

“This platform positions us to be part of a data sharing community for comparative insights and was the best technology implementation I have ever experienced,” says Janes.

By solely focusing on Human Services Organizations, The BI Collaborative understands the industry and provides VCS with a valuable partnership that goes beyond technology. VCS benefits from The BI Collaborative’s best practices, trade association knowledge, comparative data, and lessons to leverage data in preparation for the industry-wide transition to Value Based Healthcare and Alternative Payment Methods (APMs).
