The Current State of Healthcare Decisioning: What’s the Problem?

The current set of tools in the market don’t always make it easy or intuitive for healthcare professionals to access the facts and figures they need to make informed decisions – regardless of where they practice. With rising healthcare costs, the industry is endeavouring to do more with less, while still achieving positive patient outcomes. So, how do healthcare technology professionals improve healthcare information systems so that doctors and clinicians can access high-quality, easily understood and actionable data? 

Leveraging Data Analytics to Make Better Decisions

Integrated, user-friendly healthcare information systems help professionals access high-quality, easily understood and actionable data. There’s also plenty of opportunity for health systems to use technology and data analytics in new and innovative ways to reduce the cost of delivering and financing high-quality and effective care for patients. Finally, exponential advances and interoperability in digital technologies are helping clinicians deliver healthcare services in ways that consumers prefer to receive them.

Snapshot of Cost Savings

Leveraging data analytics to make better decisions is not a luxury in today’s rapidly evolving world of healthcare. It’s a necessity. Better quality data is good for everyone – providers, payers and patients alike. Improving patient care and saving money has a lot to do with foreseeing possible outcomes.

Predictive analytics, using machine learning and artificial intelligence, can contribute to everything from reducing hospital readmissions to improving supply chain efficiencies. Health executives who use predictive analytics estimate their cost savings at over 15% over five years.
