Why Data Governance Is a Hot Topic for Healthcare Organizations


note change! TODAY'S BlueJeans ID: 450787542

Here’s a sad story. Healthcare organizations are woefully late to the data governance party. While companies in many industries have long been clear on the fundamental (and critical) goals of a data governance program, healthcare organizations are just starting to see the light. How can you enable better decision-making, reduce operational friction, protect the needs of data stakeholders, train management and staff to adopt common approaches to data issues, build standard, repeatable processes, reduce costs and increase effectiveness through coordination of efforts and ensure transparency of processes? Is all of that even possible? It is. With the proper data governance program.

Data governance is about building an organizational capability to get value from enterprise data.

The key to a successful launch is finding the right problems to solve - ones that:

  • Provide significant value
  • Are achievable in 3 – 6 months
  • Build a sustainable capability (rather than a one-time cleanup)

During this seminar, Point B leaders Susan Kanvik and Greg Gardner will walk you through the why: Why should data governance be a top priority for you organization in 2018?

Then they’ll help you work on the how: How to develop a pragmatic approach and implementation strategy based on their experience working with hundreds of regional and national healthcare organizations.

This will be an interactive conversation, so your questions and insights are welcome.
