Data Analytics in the Time of COVID-19
Even under normal circumstances, data silos and disparate, disconnected technology systems are a bane to the management and delivery of healthcare. But in a crisis like a global pandemic, that same inability to extract insights can be catastrophic. In the age of COVID, the rapid adoption of innovative health IT solutions has accelerated, and hospitals are recognizing the need to make the leap from just collecting data to using that data for meaningful insights.
Monitoring key performance indicators such as blood waste, staff utilization, same-day discharge, and vent times are just a few ways that service line leaders are using analytics to not only stay afloat during the global pandemic but move towards a complete financial recovery.
