Build the Infrastructure to Become a Data-driven Healthcare Organization
May 18, 2021
Unlocking data is key to driving quality, improving efficiency, and reducing the cost of care for healthcare organizations. Yet many lack the infrastructure to deliver data driven healthcare.
CTG sponsored a panel discussion as part of Reuters Events’ Data and Informatics Week—Build the Infrastructure to Become a Data-Driven Healthcare Organization. CTG's own Dana Bensinger, MSN, RN-BC, Informatics Nurse Specialist and Client Solution Executive, along with representatives from Mount Sinai Health, Ochsner Health, Northwell Health, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, were part of the conversation. Some key takeaways and discussion topics included:
Building a central depository to connect disparate systems and internal silos to navigate new interoperability standards and regulations, while ensuring end-to-end organizational visibility
Making data actionable by streamlining EMR processes to harmonize, assimilate, and aggregate data presented back to a variety of stakeholders
Improving data quality by implementing data governance and transparency best practices
Leveraging the cloud to achieve enterprise-wide data visibility while unlocking a full suite of analytics tools
