RESOURCE: Big Data Use In Healthcare Needs Governance, Education

Healthcare organizations should adopt a standardized framework for data governance if they want to harness the power of big data, says a new report. But governance is but one element in the highly complex world of healthcare information, where many long-held practices must change, says the report, from the Institute for Health Technology Transformation (IHT2), a New York-based research and consulting firm.
Citing a 2011 McKinsey & Co. study, IHT2 said the U.S. healthcare industry could potentially save $300 billion a year with the help of advanced analytics, but healthcare organizations continue to struggle with managing and leveraging the vast stores of data they are building up.
