When it comes to formulating and operationalizing a data management strategy, the healthcare industry as a whole is not where it should be. Organizations are dealing with a confusing assortment of different electronic health record systems and analytics solutions, which leads to each system acting as a silo with its own proprietary data and key performance indicators.
John Walton, CTG Solution Architect, was published in Electronic Health Reporter where he shares four key steps for building a strong data foundation to transform your healthcare data management.
"Properdata governance in healthcare is an increasingly important part of any successful healthcare practice. By creating a data blueprint that all stakeholders can understand, CIOs can better position their organizations to implement an enterprise analytics framework that can increase revenue and improve patient outcomes," says John.
