Selayang Hospital


Selayang Hospital is the first fully electronic medical record, paperless hospital built as a showcase for Malaysia’s government hospitals. Although Data Warehouse project is part of the Total Hospital Information System, it had not been implemented even after going live for many years. The complexity of the hospital system architecture contributes to the difficulty for business intelligence and report generation.


When Speedminer was presented to the hospital in 2004, the Head of Medical Record mentioned “This is the tool that I have been looking for so long, and now I want to implement it”. She was so determined, that even without the approval of purchase, she was willing to rent the system. After 2 months of full implementation in Medical Record department, the other departments became amazed with the capabilities of Speedminer and wanted to have the system for their department as well. As a result, from a departmental implementation, Speedminer project was then converted into Selayang Hospital’s Business Intelligence project.


“Users from Selayang Hospital are very satisfied and happy using Speedminer DW & BPM as a data warehouse software. They can count on Speedminer DW & BPM to get their statistics. Senior clinicians and users from the emergency, pathology, and medical record department say that Speedminer DW & BPM is reliable and fulfills most requirements, despite the challenge in extracting data from the most complex CERNER database.”

Speedminer provides single and customized view of health analytics dashboard to the Management of Selayang Hospiral and many analytics reports for their operation and also statutory reports to Ministry of Health. Speedminer helps the hospital make strides in operational efficiency and care quality.


In 2017, Selayang Hospital has initiated a replacement of their HIS system, from Cerner to CSC-EM. Speedminer once again has been selected as sub-contractor in providing their data warehouse and business intelligence tool in building their analytics reports. Speedminer ETL tool has been used to migrate their Cerner Data to their new system – CSC-EM. Speedminer integration platform empowered by Ensemble is used to integrate their HIS with CCIS (Critical Care Information System), PHIS (Pharmaceutical Information System), Medavis RIS (Radiology Information System) etc. Using Speedminer Web Application Framework to build their Document Tracking System (DTS) made the implementation process easier and simpler.
