Be a champion for healthy data

As an integration expert, data is at the heart of everything you do. But what about the quality of the data in the systems you’re integrating? Your organization needs your help to ensure you know who you’re talking about (patient identity data) and what you’re talking about (terminology data). 

How can you persuade the powers that be within your organization (whether it’s big or small) to take steps to improve your data’s health? After all, healthy data is crucial for driving decisions about patient care, operations, and strategic initiatives. 

In this guide, Be a champion for healthy data, we frame the stakes for healthy data in three key initiatives that are nearly universal across healthcare organizations of all shapes and sizes: 

    1. Improving patient data quality and analytics  
    2. Enabling a better patient experience 
    3. Supporting improved financial outcomes 

We’ll also explain how dirty data (from patient identity or terminology) impacts those initiatives — and who to bring to the table to improve data quality in your organization.
