DANVERS, Mass., June 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthLeaders Media, a division of HCPro, Inc., has released its latest HealthLeaders Media Breakthroughs report, featuring a unique review of best practices for how leaders at hospitals and health networks can uncover the vast promise of healthcare data analytics.
In HealthLeaders Media's "The Promise of Healthcare Analytics," executives from four leading healthcare organizations -- Brigham and Women's Hospital, St. Luke's University Health Network, Charleston Area Medical Center, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina -- share insights and lessons learned in trying to make sense of the morass of clinical, financial and operational information generated each day in hospitals and health networks.
The new report is structured to help executives achieve the following:
Understand the business and clinical potential for analytics in healthcare
Assess a starting point for data analytics
Know the difference between business intelligence and predictive analytics
Overcome cultural and organizational challenges
- Establish metrics and benchmarks; develop scorecards and dashboards
Produced in collaboration with McKesson, this comprehensive industry intelligence report is available for free download at http://www.healthleadersmedia.com/breakthroughs/.
"Data to improve the quality, practice and bottom line of healthcare is increasingly necessary," said Edward Prewitt, editorial director for HealthLeaders Media and co-author of the report. "The complexity of clinical care requires up-to-date information, as do the changing dynamics of healthcare spending and reimbursements."
According to Prewitt, the full report includes four case studies, highlights of a roundtable discussion, interactive charts, and embedded audios and videos. It offers critical solutions from the executive teams at healthcare organizations on maximizing healthcare analytics, a look behind the trends with interactive charts and graphs, insights from more than 20 healthcare executives, and live links to on-demand audio and video clips so readers can hear and view executives' advice.
"There is no single path for healthcare organizations to employ data analytics," said Prewitt. "From different starting points, the organizations in this report have all adopted business intelligence tools to improve how they deliver care and ensure that they can operate profitably. This report shows the different road maps other organizations can use, the technical considerations and the improved outcomes from a data-driven approach to healthcare."
