Healthcare organizations house unique data with unique data requirements, such as those prescribed by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), as well as administrative mandates from the Department of Health and Human Services. The privacy and security requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) further complicate how healthcare data is managed. Madsen encourages healthcare leaders to tread lightly to avoid mistakes in healthcare BI, but also encourages them to treat their data as an asset, not a liability.
Leaders who read "Healthcare Business Intelligence" will be able to:
Articulate the best practices of business intelligence and data warehousing for healthcare Assess their organizations' preparedness to adopt BI Create a shared corporate lexicon Operationalize a BI program Build supporting processes and infrastructures to support a BI program today and in the future Present the value proposition and return on investment (ROI) for approval Proactively market the BI program to stakeholders

Professionals within the health care system are ‘awash’ in data, but that does not necessarily translate into actionable information
Truven Health Analytics recently reported a study showing the majority of US Emergency Department (ED) visits were actually non-emergent. In this report, only 29 percent of patients required immediate medical attention in the ED.
A truism in economic theory is that if two products are equal in value, the consumer will choose the cheaper of the two. It just makes sense. If I am looking at two bicycles that are the same, but one is $50 higher and otherwise I can’t see any difference,
Consumer engagement, patient protection, improving care, reducing waste — each depend on the interoperability of electronic health records. Providers may be adopting EHRs, but the industry is missing a fundamental requirement for EHRs, the foundational infrastructure on which our entire health care transformation depends.
