Healthcare is confronting rising costs, aging and growing populations, an increasing focus on population health, alternative payment models, and other challenges as the industry shifts from volume to value. These obstacles drive a growing need for more digitization, accompanied by a data-centric improvement strategy. To establish and maintain data as a primary strategy that guides clinical, financial, and operational transformation, organizations must have three systems in place:
- Best practices to identify target behaviors and practices.
- Analytics to accelerate improvement and identify gaps between best practices and analytic results.
- Adoption processes to outline the path to transformation.
