Health Data Analytics
Is the market served by your clinic, hospital or professional practice defined by who shows up at the door? Understanding healthcare market dynamics is one way these entities can improve their bottom line by using Health Data Analytics. Professionals skilled with Health Data Analytics can help their organization, or clients, better achieve their vision and improve performance. Health Data Analytics (HDA) are about more than individual clinics, hospitals and professional practices, or their composites. HDA tools and methods help knit together disparate data and knowledge to facilitate community planning and decision-making. Communities include traditional cities/places, neighborhood groups, sets of organizations working together and other frameworks.
Types of questions answered through the use of Health Data Analytics:
How does patient load match-up with staff and facility characteristics?
How is the geographic area of the market served best defined?
What will be the impact of change over the next 5 years?
Does the business model adequately meet patient needs and business goals?
How to improve private & public insurance claims and claims processing?
What is the competitive position; how is it changing?
Are staffing & facility requirements in line with performance needs?
What is the availability of staff in key occupations over the next several years?
