TREND #4: GROW ENTERPRISE INTELLIGENCE TO MEASURE AND IMPROVE PATIENT AND ORGANIZATIONAL HEALTH
Good UX Means Good Business
In a world where technology is rapidly advancing and user expectations are rising, it’s no longer enough to have an average user experience; to delight your users and surpass your competition you must strive for the exceptional.
Most healthcare organizations are collecting more data than they know what to do with. Unfortunately, data is not helpful unless it can be transformed into timely and actionable insights that impact performance throughout the organization. Organizations that leverage enterprise intelligence have access to the relevant clinical, financial and operational data and can transform this rich data set into actionable information that can improve decision-making and overall performance.
Enterprise intelligence creates accountability for all stakeholders because it provides transparency at an organizational level rather than at just a departmental level. According to Definitive Healthcare, many organizations are not using enterprise intelligence software. In fact, of the approximately 7,257 hospitals in the United States, only 3,450 are known to use some type of enterprise intelligence software.
Healthcare has made tremendous strides with electronic medical records (EMRs) and business intelligence capabilities. However, many organizations are still challenged by a lack of interoperability and are struggling to translate data into actionable information. System integration and the ability to access data across the organization empowers employees and helps stakeholders predict, model and measure best practices and ideal outcomes. Data-driven decisions are the key to the health of an organization and the patients they serve. With enterprise intelligence, healthcare executives and clinicians can leverage the power of data to make sound decisions based on information, not intuition.
