Another example is the Colchester Hospital University in the United Kingdom which has driven down mortality rate by 158 less deaths in their first year of using data discovery. In Germany, University Hospital Tubingen has reduced inefficiencies and increased operating room availability by two full days on a five-day operating schedule in two years, and gained one full day within six months of using analytics to drive their most critical processes. Since utilizing data discovery and analytics, they were able to give life-saving operations to 200 to 300 additional people per year in just one facility.
