My company licenses SAS Visual Analytics but has yet to install it. Does anyone have examples from healthcare - clinical or health care cost- data that shows the adavntages of VA that they are willing to share? I am trying to persuade the powers that be that we need this installed. Thanks.

It's a shame to hear you don't have the software installed yet.
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare have been using SAS Visual Analytics when it was first released to produce its publications via the internet. Have a look at their Children's Health Indicator reports they have available at http://www.aihw.gov.au/chi/
One of the main advantages I've seen SAS customers benefit from in using SAS Visual Analytics is reducing the production of paper-based static reports and providing organizations an opportunity to modernize and update their reporting processes and content. Also the ability to make real-time or close-to-real-time decisions from mobile devices, while out and about, as operational dashboards and reports are updated during the day.
If you are after non-Health Care specific facitors, you may want to post your question in the SAS Visual Analytics community.

Thank you so much for the information - I will definitely use it as part of the case I am making for installation of VA. And yes, I am looking specifically within the healthcare/health insurance community to make my case. Nothing else will make an impact.
