Leveraging Business Intelligence for Healthcare Management

– Considering that the phrase “value-based care” is almost always immediately followed by a discussion about how to trim inefficiencies and improve patient outcomes, few industries are more in need of comprehensive insight into their operations than the healthcare sector.

Business intelligence, defined by Gartner as “an umbrella term that includes the applications, infrastructure and tools, and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information to improve and optimize decisions and performance,” is essential for helping healthcare providers gain visibility into opportunities for improvement.

As with so many other industry buzzwords, however, such an all-encompassing definition is unhelpfully broad.  Healthcare organizations have very quickly learned that they cannot simply snap their fingers and instantly access all of the data, reporting, and decision support they need to foster an intelligent business.

Instead, they must take a measured, piece-by-piece approach to the synthesis and analysis of clinical,

Evaluating the relationship among agriculture, energy demand, finance and environmental degradation in one belt and one road economies: Carbon Management: Vol 11, No 2

The agriculture sector has a 21 percent share in global CO2 emission. It is contributing the 40 percent share in the gross domestic product of OBORI (One Belt and One Road Initiative) economies. Therefore, the present work intends to evaluate the role of agriculture and forest on environmental degradation from 1980 to 2017 for OBORI economies. The cross-sectional dependence, and order of integration are checked by cross-sectional dependence and second-generation panel unit roots tests respectively. Afterwards, the Wester-Lund co-integration test infers the existence of co-integration between under-considered variables for OBORI region. The empirical results from Fully Modified Ordinary Least Square (FMOLS) and Dynamic Ordinary Least Square (DOLS) suggest that agriculture and energy demand cause to upsurge the environmental degradation. While, the forest is improving the environment quality. The authorities may consider the efficient energy utilizing, and eco-friendly techniques to overcome the deteriorating effects of energy usage and agriculture on environment

Data Management vs. Business Intelligence

What is a company to do when Business Intelligence (BI), designed to leverage data as an asset, costs too much time and money due to failures in traditional Data Management processes, such as the prepping and cleaning of data?

Should a business analyst, wanting to produce ad-hoc reports, have to be tech-savvy or wait for someone more knowledgeable to help fix these problems? Many firms are turning to self-service BI to make business analysis easier and more intuitive, but Data Management process issues continue to exist upstream, making pure self-service BI cumbersome because of the continuation of poor-quality data.

Businesses need to understand Data Management’s impact on BI. In a recent DATAVERSITY® interview, Mike Brody, CEO of Exago, explored where Business Intelligence (BI) sits and how it intersects with traditional Data Management tasks. Brody defined Data Management in-line with the DAMA DMBOK®:

“The development, execution, and supervision of plans, policies,
