Healthcare Data Management: Three Principles of Using Data to Its Full Potential

Author Douglas Laney is now tackling the topic of Infonomics: the practice of information economics. In his 2017 book, Infonomics: How to Monetize, Manage, and Measure Information as an asset for competitive advantage, Laney provides detailed rationale as well as a thoughtful framework for treating information as a modern-day organization’s most valuable asset.

This article walks through how healthcare organizations can leverage data to its full potential using this framework and the three principles of infonomics:

• Manage - What data does the organization have? Where is it stored?
• Monetize - How does the organization use data?
