Tableau For Healthcare is a course focused on what quality is, why we care about it in healthcare, and how we can best use Tableau to analyze it using different topics like readmissions, ED utilization, mortality, and hypertension management. Please note that while Tableau functionality will be discussed, this is not meant to be an intro to Tableau course - instead it's focused on the leveraging Tableau to analyze quality improvement within health systems and hospitals.

This course was created by me - Mark Connolly, MEng. I'm currently a Business Intelligence Lead and co-lead for the virtual Tableau Healthcare User Group. I have over 4 years of experience reporting on quality data using Tableau and over 8 years of experience in the healthcare analytics space in general. I have a Tableau Desktop Certification and recently received a Site Admin badge after completing the Tableau eLearning path.

Beyond my experience working directly with quality data and Tableau, I have also developed internal Tableau training programs and provided 100's (if not 1000's) of hours of training support to analysts both at his current organization and externally.

This course combines two of my passions - helping others with Tableau and healthcare!

Who this course is for:
  • Tableau experienced professionals working in healthcare analytics at a hospital, health system, insurance payor or quality improvement role
  • Analysts beginning in healthcare
