The impact of operational issues on the launch and expansion of data analytics initiatives will be the focus of a track of sessions to be offered during Health Data Management’s upcoming Healthcare Analytics Symposium.

Analytics leaders Trushna Dave and Kate Pavlovich at New York-Presbyterian Hospital will address the fundamental challenge of getting access to data, an obviously important but not necessarily easy task. The organization and its affiliated medical schools at Columbia College and Weill Cornell Medical College created a data sharing infrastructure to foster data availability across the institutions.

Each of the institutions had been operating independently, making data sharing a complicated and political process, but that changed with a data sharing agreement signed two years ago. The result was a faster and more streamlined process for data requests and delivery; the approach can serve as a model for other organizations.

Other sessions during the track cover the use of self-service software to integrate and analyze business intelligence data, and lessons learned in building an analytics team.
