The three-minute guide

Learn how to create a comprehensive analytics plan that spans people, processes, and tools.

Why health care analytics?

Discover and connect islands of excellence
Analytics can be the bridge that links information throughout the health care system to uncover leading clinical practices, shrink research discovery time, and streamline administration.

By making the appropriate information available to clinicians, researchers, and administrators when and where it's needed, health care organizations can help align people's decisions and actions in ways that improves outcomes and add value.

The benefits

Reduce costs
Analytics can identify patterns and trends that provide insights into changes in workflows and clinical practices that can decrease costs.

Healthier, more satisfied populations
Clinicians gain access to data about the real cost, quality, and performance of treatments, leading to more effective and timely health care.

Improve management
Administrators gain the ability to measure the effectiveness of contracts and manage them more actively. Automated reporting of outcomes can reduce resource requirements and improve accuracy. And more.

Enhance decision-making
Management can extract and compile information from across the system more quickly and easily to speed decision-making across the organization.

Shrink research time
Health care providers can share clinical data with researchers without releasing protected health information (PHI) to speed discovery and learning time.
