Hospitals and health systems are becoming more data driven as they advance their digital strategies to create greater value, reduce costs and improve outcomes for their patients and communities.

For example, a 2021 survey of health care executives found that:

  • 60% of health care organizations are adding new digital products.*
  • 42% are accelerating some or all of their digital transformation plans.*

The path to effectively leverage health care data to support retrospective, real-time and predictive analytics requires that provider organizations closely examine how they collect, store and protect their data for staff, business partners and patients.
