How Do We Accelerate Data Driven Health Care?
MetadataShow full item record
By driving the digitization of healthcare data, the 2009 HITECH Act set the stage for business and business practice transformation. Today, the amount of healthcare data doubles every two years and growth is accelerating. It is now widely accepted that the future of healthcare will strongly depend on the effective and maximal use of the growing diversity and volume of healthcare data to transform care in ways that substantially improve patient accessibility, quality, and affordability of care and patient and provider experience. But, achieving that vision – transforming healthcare through the continual creation of analytical insights and their translation into clinical practice – is exceedingly difficult in the complex business of health care because it requires diverse knowledge, talent, assets, and endless financial investment. No single entity or market has all that is required. Today, these capabilities and assets rest within distinctly different organizations that largely act independently of each other. In this talk I will describe an organizational model that bridges the divides among organizations to accelerate transformation of health care through data driven science, methods, and solutions.
