Analytics in healthcare is vital - driven by the need to extract knowledge and meaning from large data sets, manage disparate data from multiple sources, address increased competition and regulatory complexity. With the inevitable onslaught of data from varying sources, commitment to operational data governance that identifies data provenance, data use, activates data powerfully and delivers outcomes that are legal, just and fair is essential. This approach is called Ethical Data Use (EDU), giving providers the confidence to accelerate into big data and advanced analytics while protecting the brand and delivering trustworthy outcomes. As trusted stewards of personal health information, health organizations can't jeopardize the privacy of its population or use data in inappropriate or unethical ways or the outcome could be disastrous. Knowing how to start with the right identity and engineer privacy and security of all sources of data throughout the continuum of care is critical.
