Clinical & Business Intelligence: Data Management - A Foundation for Analytics




With the emergence of EHRs, HIEs, all-payer claims databases, and continuity of care documents (CCD), clinicians and administrators at Health Systems are drowning in data and eagerly seeking ways - through analytics and clinical and business intelligence (C&BI) - to convert data into information and knowledge that can be leveraged to manage and improve clinical, operational, and financial performance.


Data, and the management of those data, create the foundation for a successful C&BI analytics program. In order to acquire, maintain, and prepare data for use in clinical and business analytics, each step should be defined and implemented to ensure quality data for analytics.


This series includes modules on data governance, data integration, data enrichment and enhancement, and data storage; targets health IT CIOs, Directors and Managers responsible for managing data; and provides an overview of considerations and best practices for successfully managing your data.

This is a HIMSS C&BI Task Force tool that identifies the challenges faced by healthcare organizations, both in business and technical terms and explores the topic of integrating Clinical and Business Intelligence (CBI) with operational workflows in the clinical environment.
