Why a Build-Your-Own Healthcare Data Platform Will Fall Short and What to Do About It

Health system may have some compelling reasons for choosing to build a data platform versus partner with a healthcare analytics vendor on a commercial solution. However, while organizations may think they’re saving money, gaining control and security, and more by opting for a homegrown approach, they’ll more than likely encounter challenges, hidden costs, and limitations. In comparison to a commercial-grade, healthcare-specific platform from a vendor, build-your-own solutions fall short when it comes to domain-specific content, technical expertise, total cost of ownership, and more. Organizations that partner on a vended platform vastly improve their chances of optimizing and scaling their analytic investment over time and achieving measurable improvement.

AI-Powered Benchmarking Transforms Data into Insight, Improving Organizational Effectiveness

Healthcare organizations have a vast amount of data available. Data need to be converted into better decisions regarding organizational focus, resource allocation, and setting and driving toward appropriate targets to optimize performance. Beyond significant data integration and transformation, optimal leadership decisions require a broad perspective and cutting-edge analytics.

Previously, INTEGRIS Health had high volumes of data but lacked the insight it wanted to drive performance.

Four Elements that Bridge the Gap Between Using Data and Becoming Data-Driven

With mounting pressures to deliver quality care with fixed resources, data-driven healthcare is pivotal to organizations’ well-being. From operations to the front lines of clinical care, data can drive the best outcome if decision makers have relevant information when they need it.
