WHERE THE BRIGHTEST MINDS in health and IT meet.
February 19-23, 2017
A unified analytics team and data governance structure enabled Medical Center to bring together and standardize multiple discrete data sources, so all departments rely on a single source of truth when it comes to their data. To achieve this, they moved analytics out of their IT department and into a distinct department of analytics and decision support. One of the unique outcomes of Medical Center’s reorganization was the creation of two distinct but complementary CMIO positions, one for inpatient settings and one for outpatient care. As cost and quality are increasingly measured not by care episodes but by overall patient outcomes, optimizing transitions in care has become a crucial focal point for health systems. Bringing together the expertise of both inpatient and outpatient domains ensures that the insights garnered from analytics fully address the continuum of care.
