Health systems looking to improve the lives of patients through analytics often face problems that prevent them from making the improvements they desire. But by using the three systems: Analytics, Content, and Deployment, organizations can be successful. The analytics system ensures that data is aggregated, easy-to-access, and distributed efficiently by implementing a data warehouse. The content system provides the framework for best practices and baselines, which provide context and actionable insight to metrics provided by the analytics system. Finally, the deployment system consists of a permanent, multi-disciplinary team to enact those actionable insights from the content system. All three systems together form the base for organizations to make the journey to data-driven improvement successful.
