The amount of clinical and administrative data that healthcare providers generate has seen explosive growth over the last few years. It presents both an opportunity and a challenge.
Healthcare providers can use the wealth of data to improve the safety and quality of their services, enhance efficiency, improve healthcare solutions, meet compliance requirements, and achieve many other short- and long-term objectives.
However, they must overcome data management challenges to benefit from the data. As data collected increases in velocity, volume, and value, they must organize fragmented data, integrate it, enable its analysis, and derive useful insights from it while ensuring privacy and security. It also needs to be accessible. That is where healthcare data management technologies and IT solutions come in.
