Data Orchestration and Governance

Image result for information builders

A strong data strategy for payers and providers capitalizes on current technologies to create a health data curation and enrichment hub, in short, a “Data Orchestration Platform.” Aligning resources across all departments to this strategy can enable any provider or health plan to become data-driven while generating an ROI that prepares for a future investment in AI and machine learning.  

Data Orchestration requires connecting numerous internal/external data sources then centrally profiling, enriching and cleansing these data with advanced match, merge and mastering across important domains such as patient, provider attribution, workforce and location. 

Additionally, in healthcare it is important to effectively and centrally manage the 1.2 million codes in all of the clinical terminologies and reference data sets. 

Lastly, these data must be democratized by providing access to definitions and data lineage through governance and also publishing up to date, analyst-friendly self-service data marts and metrics cohorts. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend high-level illustrations of various data complexities specific to the healthcare industry including two actual use case examples of data challenges in acute care.
  • Recognize the significance of treating data as an asset to create your Data Orchestration Hub to enable the effective use of Machine Learning, AI, NLP, and IoT as a part of organizational analytics.
  • Understand key components of defining analytics ROI and leveraging a Data Orchestration Hub for governance.
