Carefully Thinking Things Through

In his best-selling book “Thinking, Fast and Slow,” Nobel prize-winning economist Daniel Kahneman details two separate mental systems we each have: “fast thinking” is what we might call “gut instinct” and is more impulsive and reactionary; “slow thinking” is based on deliberative reasoning. When making complex decisions, Kahneman says we are generally better off engaging in “slow thinking.” In this month’s newsletter, we highlight the business value of carefully thinking through processes, steps and desired outcomes to achieve optimal results. In “5 Optimal Steps for Creating a Pilot Data Warehouse,” we provide a sequential guide for creating a data warehouse that aids organizational decision-making. In “Overcoming the Challenges of Launching a Clinical Integration Network (CIN),” you will learn ways of addressing the inherent complexities of starting and effectively operating a CIN.
