Healthcare Data Stewardship

16,048 views

Published on

Health data stewards are keepers of tribal knowledge, and they’re invaluable when a health system launches or expands a healthcare data analytics initiative. Their intimate and expansive knowledge of how data is collected to represent workflow across different systems can save days’ worth of time (and cost) in the development process while improving the accuracy of the analytics output. But getting anything more than a few spare moments of their time can be difficult because health data stewardship isn’t part of their job description. While it may seem difficult to justify at first, organizations need to formalize the role of the health data steward. The investment will ultimately return many times its value as the organization realizes the advantage of the analytics.

  2. 2. “We are data rich and information poor.” © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Data vs. Information We hear this often from health systems with years of data collection and have terabytes of stockpiled data. There are two key components to turning that data into information. 1. Ready access – Using a solid a healthcare analytics system to provide access and accountability 2. Good healthcare data stewardship Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation.
  3. 3. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Healthcare Data Stewardship Data stewardship is the aspect of healthcare data governance that focuses on providing the appropriate access to users, helping users to understand the data, and owns the data quality. With poor data stewardship even the best infrastructures become underutilized and poorly understood by knowledge workers who could be generating value from the data every day. Proprietary.

  4. 4. Who Should be the Data Steward? © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Because no single person can know everything about every system, it’s best to have many data stewards — at least one for every major source of data in the organization. The best person to perform this role is the person who knows the most about how and why the data is collected in each of the various source systems. Proprietary.

  5. 5. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Data Steward Tools for Success Once you’ve identified who should become data stewards, there are a few things they will need to succeed. First, make sure there’s a good data warehouse architecture. This will promote good data stewardship because it will eliminate the fragmented data systems. A centralized data warehouse delivers a single reporting platform and point of entry into an organized repository of data. Proprietary.

  6. 6. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Data Steward Tools for Success Provide the data stewards with a solid set of metadata tools. These tools will allow stewards to share their knowledge about the data mart or marts they are responsible for. Metadata tools that allow data stewards and users to create and edit descriptions for objects in the data warehouse provide this forum and will aid in creating a self-sufficient data warehouse user community.

  7. 7. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Creating Long-term Value using Data Stewardship Once the data is unlocked in an EDW, the best way to create long-term value is to have a thriving user base. Data stewards are critical partners to the data warehouse team in creating the user base. They are the data librarians who advise and guide users, and help them get the most value out of the EDW.
