How the pandemic sparked a digital transformation in healthcare data analytics

26 September 2023

The COVID-19 pandemic revolutionized the way healthcare organizations transform data into timely information, reporting and decision-making.

When the pandemic first hit, the general approach to healthcare data analytics was lacking: critical data could not be accessed in real-time nor made available to other healthcare providers, policymakers and the public. For example, ICU bed utilization was not accurately communicated. While the quest for faster, better data analytics systems existed far before COVID-19, the pandemic turned aspiration to need.

How can healthcare providers and payers transform their wealth of data into meaningful insights that drive better decision-making and patient outcomes? The right technology, and people to implement it within your culture, is key.

The meaning of “timeliness” during a global pandemic

The pandemic forced the healthcare industry to radically change its data processing infrastructure. Healthcare organizations no longer had the luxury of taking 30 days to process data – the pandemic required daily and hourly reporting.

So, how do we make healthcare data consumable and timely?

Leveraging the cloud and digitally transforming how healthcare data analytics are collected, analyzed and reported on are crucial to transforming the healthcare system itself so that it can improve patient outcomes during a pandemic and in “normal” times.
