Increasing amount of data in the healthcare sector requires specific tools that enable to process data in the rapidly changing environment. Especially in the private healthcare sector there is a clear need for appropriate tools to support decision-making process and thus, enhance profit making. Based on an empirical investigation of eight private healthcare sector organizations, we gain understanding on use of BI-tools in the private healthcare sector and utilization of them in decision-making. We analyse the capability factors and features of the BI-tools in the private healthcare industry sector, using the information systems (IS) success model by DeLone and McLean [1] as our theoretical lenses for identifying the gained benefits and the success of BI-tool utilization.
