Healthcare organizations recognize the need for enhanced understanding of their businesses in order to be successful in the fast-changing landscape of healthcare. In order to accomplish this, these organizations must embrace a holistic approach to business intelligence that goes beyond data infrastructure and tools used for advanced analytics. A holistic approach to business intelligence requires clearly defined business needs, ongoing data and systems assessments, insights from analyses, and the development of strategies based on the information obtained from those analyses. This comprehensive approach will strengthen an organization’s foundation for using data to drive decisions that move the business forward and ensure success.
