Healthcare organizations face mounting pressure to standardize patient care and increase visibility into financial performance, while enhancing staff and patient satisfaction. In this endeavor, hospitals capture and prioritize data from disparate sources, formats and systems and manually organize the data. However, the data is constantly evolving, growing in complexity and volume, making data management an untenable task.
Pulled data requires cleansing, ensuring the data is accurate, correct, consistent, relevant and uncorrupted. Most healthcare data analytic solutions for hospitals promise to scrub data and present it in an easy to read venue, but these solutions are costly, difficult to use and even more difficult to discern any useful information from the data presented.
Five Reasons Why Analytics Programs Fail
Gallup cites five reasons as to why analytics programs fail with the failure to glean insights from the data as the biggest problem, followed by using the wrong metrics. Some users are unable to identify the problem they are trying to solve and end up growing frustrated trying to understand the data. This inability to easily lift useful insights from accurate, correct and relevant data leaves most users frustrated, often abandoning the analytics software.
