This exclusive, original research and analysis offers key insight from top healthcare executives and clinical leaders, including:

  • Population health management fuels much of the interest in analytics: 41% of respondents are now doing analytics on health data from a defined population, and another 48% either expect to do so in a year or are investigating.
  • Internal analytics is no longer enough. Although only 17% of respondents do analytics with clinical data from partners' EHRs, an additional 57% either expect to do so within a year or are investigating how to get started.
  • More than half of respondents (54%) cite EHR interoperability and the integration of clinical and business data (54%) as their biggest challenges.
  • Nearly half of respondents (44%) cite the need to support coordinated care among the top strategic drivers of their IT efforts.
  • Analytics staffing shortages are a real problem.  More than half of respondents (53%) say that insufficient skills in analytics are among their top near-term tactical challenges. More than one-third (38%) expect to add analytics-savvy staffers within the next year, and 43% will invest in analytics training.
