Successful data management requires much more than investment in technology—it also involves putting the processes and people in place to manage all aspects of the data lifecycle.

Thus, all three areas have an important role to play in how data is created, stored, moved, used and retired. Leading healthcare businesses are beginning to understand the importance of data management and architecture, which is vital to ensuring that the data needed for organizational decision-making and reporting is available, accurate, complete and secure.
 
Most healthcare executives are constrained by information and data that are often insufficient or untrustworthy, or so copious that they require weeks to analyze. How often are you faced with the following situations: 

  • Being patient-centric if you don’t know who your patients are? Patient-centric healthcare organizations rely on access to comprehensive and trusted information for more informed decision-making. Unfortunately, it is common that health organizations are not able to accurately identify a patient at all points of service.
  • To improve the quality of care, deliver increased value and encourage EMR adoption, healthcare organizations need trusted data.
  • The quality of your business data directly influences the effectiveness of your business processes and quality of the business decisions you make every day. Yet it’s typical for data about patients, resources and operations to be housed in multiple information silos, with no consistency among them. In fact, according to the Tower Group, 50% of healthcare enterprises separately maintain master data in 11 or more systems.
  • Increasing pressure to control escalating healthcare costs, reduce the ranks of the uninsured, improve quality of care and support innovative clinical research. Meaningful improvements in healthcare efficiency and quality will rely heavily on technologies that can improve the flow, integration and interpretation of data across the continuum of care. 

FlexITy’s Healthcare practice provides a structured, holistic approach that delivers offerings and assets to support our clients in managing their data. We structure data management & architecture into the following domains:

  • Data Structure—The definition of data.

  • Metadata—The management of data definitions and information about data.
