    Tableau Reader in Healthcare Setting

    Nicole Lohr

      At the June 22 HUG webinar, there was a question about whether or not we use Tableau Reader. The answer is no.  We chose not to install Tableau Reader due to the lack on transparency.  With Tableau Server, we can monitor who is using the workbooks, how many times they interacted with a workbook, how long it takes to refresh, etc.  We can set up tighter security controls with project security to prevent people from seeing row level data, etc.  With Reader, its like forwarding a pdf of information.  We also don't let people download the workbooks at this time UNLESS they are a Tableau Desktop user and help with development of those dashboards.  Hope that helps!
