Opinion: How mature is your hospital business intelligence system?
September 11, 2013
Once upon a time, calling someone or something mature was a compliment, suggesting sophistication, wisdom, insightfulness. But in 2013, the term can just as easily connote something's outdated or ready for retirement, which begs the question: Is your business intelligence (BI) platform sophisticated, offering deep insights into what your hospital needs, or is it ready for the rocking chair? Today's healthcare organizations face challenges never imagined a few years ago, including pressure from public and private payers to lower the cost of the care they provide while maintaining its quality.
