Like all industries, healthcare is constantly evolving and adapting to the latest market challenges. And that means health systems are seeking creative solutions to deal with changing payer models, new technologies, and new regulations―along with finding ways to provide an optimal patient experience. In addition, these systems are asked to do a lot more with a lot less―and they need to do it quicker than ever by adjusting on a dime to react to competitive pressures in a turbulent market.
We know that as health systems become more complicated, and the care they deliver becomes more decentralized, healthcare analytics are playing an increasingly important role in driving operations. With an unprecedented amount of data available today, leaders presumably should have the insight to transform operations across their enterprise and drive the necessary change to deliver that superior patient experience.
Yet, a recent article in Healthcare IT News1 found that many strategic decisions across providers are made on departmental or single-hospital-basis―and only one in four of those organizations surveyed in the article are making use of executive dashboards. And while HIMSS Analytics2 found that the majority (92.7 percent) of healthcare organizations in the same survey say they do have an analytics strategy―fewer than 33 percent say they've been able to substantially and successfully execute on that strategy. And, for the ones that do use executive dashboards regularly, more than half (58.6 percent) apply these analytics only for departmental or single-hospital decision making―and just 24.3 percent of the healthcare leaders in the survey say their organizations are able to leverage analytics in a strategic way across multi-hospital systems.

And with an enterprise dashboard and a suite of executive dashboards, health system leaders have access to everything they need to run their health system – including an overview of the key performance metrics necessary to operate a command center in one view―including census by campus, incoming patients that need a bed, patients being transferred into/out of the system, as well as information pertaining to rooms that need to be cleaned by environmental services, and patients that need to be transported to tests or discharged. Having data is one thing―extracting the right data to transform insight to action is another.
