Customer Success – The Carle Foundation

Based in Urbana, Ill., The Carle Foundation is a vertically integrated health system with more than 7,000 employees in its hospitals, physician group, health plan and associated healthcare businesses including the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, the world’s first engineering-based college of medicine.

Carle combines clinical care, health insurance, research and academics in a way that solves real-world problems today. Supported by a deep philanthropic spirit with an eye toward the future, they are dedicated to doing what it takes to make life better for as many as possible.

Carle’s Challenge

Carle's SAP BusinessObjects deployment contains over 3,000 reporting objects, including those for its Epic EHR reporting system. They needed to organize their content and optimize their security model. Security also dictated a change in strategy to have users view reports in SAP BusinessObjects.

Carle implemented APOS Insight to achieve:
  • Simplified Content & Security Management Carle used APOS Insight reporting as the basis for a complete content and security overhaul, greatly improving system integrity and consistency, as well as information organization and access control.
  • Ad-Hoc System Analysis APOS Insight allowed Carle to answer almost any question about the system quickly and effectively. Using Insight data, they developed Crystal Reports and Tableau dashboards to analyze system usage and maximize effectiveness.
  • Report Delivery Analysis With APOS Insight reporting, Carle was able to analyze 2,000 recurring schedules to determine who was receiving reports via e-mail allowing them to switch users quickly to viewing reports directly in SAP BusinessObjects.


Mandy Bodine, BI Director at The Carle Foundation, called APOS Insight an invaluable asset:

"What’s truly invaluable about APOS Insight is the ability to carve out very detailed information that you need, on the fly. After sculpting our BusinessObjects system using data from Insight, it is more efficient, powerful and easier to use than ever before. Within our department, we are able to improve workflows and processes in a much more controlled and streamlined way."
