DATA - IT SHOULDN'T BE THIS HARD: LESSONS FROM THE TRENCHES

Peter Aiken, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Information Systems, VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY & FOUNDER OF DATA BLUEPRINT, INC.
J. Brian Cassel, PhD, Health Services Researcher, VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY MASSEY CANCER CENTER

Like most industries, healthcare organizations attempt to address data challenges, yet frequently, results fall far below expectations. Overall, poor organizational data management (DM) maturity is the root cause of these failures. This presentation will cover four lessons as illustrated in healthcare and non-healthcare examples, helping you to establish realistic DM plans and expectations.  These four lessons include:

  • Organizational thinking must change: Value-added data management practices must align to your business needs.
  • Learning to walk before you run: First understand and implement necessary prerequisites; then build upon that solid foundation.
  • There are no silver bullets: Tools alone are not the answer. Business practices and data governance may be more important.
  • Taking an agile approach: Through a process of continuous planning and feedback, ensure that value is continuously maximized throughout the development process.
