How often have you heard – or said! – this about your data?
- “We just can’t trust the data.”
- “We need to be able to dig deeper into performance issues.”
- “I have 30 data sources – and none of them talk to each other!”
Most organizations face challenges around consuming data in easy and actionable ways. Data exists in multiple systems with inconsistent data quality and definitions. Moreover, the amount of data we generate, capture, copy, share, and consume continues to grow exponentially.
Now imagine the possibilities if your organization could suddenly aggregate data from disparate sources into a single view. What if your data was clean, stitched together, and ready to go?
With unified data, you could
- Generate high-confidence reports: create trusted and automated reports to drive discussions and decisions at the management and board levels.
- Visualize data: identify trends and derive insights with Data Dashboards, for example, could you accelerate hiring by precisely identifying the bottlenecks in your hiring process
- Discover relationships: interrogate the data and identify trends, such as whether specific covering physicians are contributing to the increase in your facilities’ hospitalization rates
- Leverage AI: use predictive analytical techniques to, for example, proactively identify residents at high risk for adverse events like falls.
- Decision support systems: drive informed decisions, such as shift staffing optimization with complete visibility into time-off requests, open positions, overtime trends, and flexible staffing options.
It’s all possible. Unified data can rapidly transform your organization, offering significant benefits in many areas. Better equip your analysts and decision makers, drive improved resident and staff satisfaction, while at the same time improving quality and enhancing operational efficiencies.
