Data Lake for Healthcare’s Digital Transformation Journey
Creating a unified data approach to optimize clinical and financial outcomes for healthcare organizations. Shrinking reimbursements and increasing consumerism have made it critical for healthcare executives to understand and unlock the power of their organizations’ data. Health systems are progressively leveraging their data to eliminate waste, enhance efficiency, and deliver upgraded patient service. All these factors congregate to the chief information officer’s (CIO) desk as information systems departments are tasked with implementing data in a suitable manner to meet new operational requirements.
For successful data implementation, CIOs need to verify that their traditional data warehouses are upgraded to a powerful data lake, which serves as an efficient investment for their executive processes. To deliver value, a data lake requires specific applicability to clinical and business problems. Hospital leadership requires solutions with a strong data lake foundation that rationalize their information technology (IT) expenditures, simplify regulatory reporting for staff, and address the evolving needs of the end-users.
