Digital Edition, June 14, 2012
Health plans and providers have never needed in-depth answers more so than now as they face changing reimbursement systems, the call for increased quality, and the omnipresent demand to bend the cost curve. In todays era of big data, theres no shortage of both structured and unstructured data, particularly medical data, for access to those answers. But in order for health care organizations to harness this data, they must move beyond descriptive statistics to advanced analytics.
As such, leaders are turning to the power of health analytics to model, optimize and predict, allowing them to ask sophisticated questions and get answers that enable them to draw specific, actionable conclusions on what, why, and how. All this knowledge, in turn, makes it possible to move organizations forward to higher levels of performance in every realm.
