New Checklist Report helps healthcare providers develop strategies for employing BI, data discovery, and analytics tools and technologies in their environments.
TDWI Research has released its newest Checklist Report, Seven Steps to Realizing Value from Business Intelligence and Discovery Analytics for Healthcare Providers. The report explains how the latest BI and data discovery tools can enable a wider spectrum of healthcare managers and practitioners to analyze data to learn how to reduce read missions, improve quality of care, and employ evidence-based medical insights.
“The healthcare industry is experiencing a data-driven renaissance. In the U.S., organizations are responding to changes in regulatory policy brought on by the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which requires new types of data gathering, performance metrics, and analysis,” writes David Stodder, author of the report. “Major shifts in patient demographics, patient expectations, and the business ecosystem are also hiking increasing demand for better data access and analysis. Business intelligence, data discovery, and analytics are becoming vital to reaching objectives for improving clinical, financial, and operational functions.”
The report addresses how healthcare providers such as hospitals, clinics, and other practitioners are making up for lost time after years of lagging behind other industries in data prowess. Stodder explains why it is vital that these practitioners improve their users’ interaction with data. In addition, Stodder explains how BI and analytical discovery are incorporating big data sources—both internal and external—to improve quality of care, patient outcomes, and profitability.
