Data Driven Decision Making in Healthcare
The implementation of electronic health records (EHR), advent of mobile health, and increasingly sophisticated data analytics are rapidly changing the health care industry, and the industry is poised to bring the advancements necessary to create a leaner, savvier, more efficient health care system. Benefits include evidence-based, cost-effective treatments; remote monitoring and telemedicine; increased awareness of patient risks and preventative care implementation; and improved fraud and abuse detection.
Yet, before those benefits can be reaped, a number of challenges remain to be explored. How can data be structured consistently and converted into real-time analytics that are both accessible and secure? What are the barriers to interoperability and information exchange (required by the HITECH Act’s Meaningful Use Stage 2), and how can they be addressed? What measures can be taken to overcome the security and privacy risks posed by mobile devices and cloud services?
