Healthcare CIOs faced enormous pressure to deliver the data and analytics infrastructure their organizations needed to survive the COVID-19 pandemic.  Recovery is on the horizon, but health systems are still under tremendous strain.  CIOs who invest in data platform capabilities help their health systems move forward today—and enable innovation, tomorrow.

In a recent report, “3 Best Practices to Reset Healthcare Organizations’ Data and Analytics Strategy”, Gartner vice president Laura Craft makes three recommendations for CIOs. Per Gartner:

  • Reengineer your data services layer by investing in next-generation smart data technologies. Develop a pipeline of data tools and enablers across your digital architecture.
  • Move AI from the lab to value realization by focusing on the human elements of culture and frontline adoption. Democratize ownership by engaging end users early and continuously.
  • Break down and reconstruct your data governance processes and models. Drive improved enterprise data agility and collaboration by using adaptive data governance and DataOps approaches.”
