The Challenge

Healthcare organizations need diverse datasets to improve patient care, grow revenues and facilitate better decisions. Yet when data quality is poor and there is no single version of the truth, the information can be more harmful than helpful. This drives up costs and risks. Incomplete or inaccurate patient records could result in someone receiving the wrong diagnosis or prescription, for example. Data governance is a set of processes, policies and standards for managing information to prevent these issues.
