Healthcare Must Climb the Analytics Maturity Ladder

From the Healthcare & Life Sciences Institute

Most healthcare organizations are only halfway up the data and analytics maturity ladder. Heeding Affordable Care Act (ACA) mandates, they are instituting electronic health records (EHRs) and using analytics derived insights to improve short-term outcomes, such as decreased hospital admissions and complications.

Moving up the D&A maturity ladder in this new era of payment reform requires organizations to become data driven cultures and use data to gain a holistic picture of patients’ healthcare touch points.
