Our consultants have experience leading the development and rollout of enterprise data management platforms and analytics services for some of the largest and most respected healthcare providers and commercial businesses in the United States. Over their careers, they have turned large health systems and businesses with paper-based record systems or underutilized and unstructured data assets into data-driven industry leaders.
Leverage Your Data
Organizations must consider data lakes, data warehousing, big data and data governance when developing a modern-day data management program. To ensure data are leveraged optimally, IT must enable a federated approach toward data management that aligns the data assets, technologies, processes, culture and governance with organizational strategy. This management approach along with the right analytics strategy can ensure the person closest to the problem has access to the right data at the right time.
When healthcare organizations need to improve quality and business operations, they now look for data as empirical evidence that supports the best course of action. To meet this need, organizations need consistent and reliable data to support targeted decision making. Ensuring data is properly managed is a foundational step for organizations seeking to fully capitalize on advanced analytics capabilities.
T2 Tech has orchestrated business intelligence and analytics transformations for leading healthcare organizations such as City of Hope, NYU Langone Medical Center and Kootenai Health. Whether you need data-driven insights to support expansion through new network partnerships or need to build an empirically-based path to more value-based care, we can guide you through each step of your data management journey and build lasting programs to get the right data in the right hands at the right time.
The Healthcare Journey
Building a successful business intelligence and analytics program for healthcare often involves passing many milestones before advanced analytics technologies can be fully leveraged for value. A typical journey for healthcare organizations as they become better at interpreting data can involve the following steps:
- Basic reporting: Data is being leveraged cumbersomely. Data may be siloed in various departments, it may be logged in an unorganized array of spreadsheets and reporting the data to the people who need it can take a long time.
- Foundational analytics: A data governance is being leveraged, and data is more centralized. The structured and unstructured use of shared data helps produce useful information like cost of care intelligence.
- Predictive and prescriptive analytics: The data is shared more efficiently, is more integrated into different technologies and can be leveraged to develop preemptive strategies. Using centralized data from a wide variety of sources, organizations can further develop many useful programs, such as population health analytics, evidence-based medicine, streaming analytics and similarity analytics. These programs facilitate proactive interventions and improve patient outcomes.
- Cognitive analytics: Organizations are on the forefront and leading the way for other providers. With better natural language understanding and artificial intelligence, their systems feature dynamic learning for optimal care guidance. This technology opens the door for clinical content analysis, Watson applications, guided consumer experiences, personalized healthcare, and other possibilities.
