How can health systems use data and analytics to drive healthcare forward and achieve sustainable improvements? Senior Vice President and General Manager of Data, TJ Elbert, and Chief Technology Officer, Bryan Hinton, have a few ideas about data’s critical—and evolving—role in healthcare and what health systems can do to maximize this precious asset. In this episode of Owning the Future of Healthcare, a Health Catalyst podcast, Elbert and Hinton discuss the shift from data computing to data management, the need for data governance, and why augmented intelligence is the key to accelerating care improvement.
“Now that we have sophisticated data infrastructure, the challenge is governing and orchestrating growing amounts of data.”
