How Successful Is Analytics in Supporting Executive Level Strategic Decision-Making?

HIMSS Analytics Survey

We’ve all heard that “data is king” and that one of the keys to winning in this new value-based world is to use data to make more informed, numbers-backed decisions.

Indeed, hospitals and health systems have mountains of clinical, operational, and financial data at their disposal, thanks to the proliferation of electronic health records (EHRs), time management systems, and other sources of data within their organizations. But are they able to successfully harness that data to support strategic decision-making at the executive level?

For the survey, HIMSS Analytics gathered responses from 110 senior healthcare leaders at hospitals and health systems.
