Healthcare organizations today are flooded with data and face increasing pressure to make sense of it all. The delivery of patient care generates large amounts of patient data for record keeping, regulatory compliance, diagnosis, and treatment. Historically, much of this data has been stored in paper form, unstructured and siloed. Electronic health records (EHR) helped digitize the data, but the next evolution is to analyze and utilize the data, so it can be used to provide
the best care possible. Data can provide meaningful insights on clinical workflows, as well as track key performance metrics established by departments or facilities. To maximize the
value of medical data, organizations need to determine how to deliver actionable data to care teams wherever they are located.
