Data strategy in healthcare often feels like it’s stuck in the 1990s.
Trying to gather insight is like wandering hopefully along the aisles at Blockbuster rather than using a service as seamless as Netflix.
During the global pandemic, some healthcare leaders were even walking hospital floors with clipboards counting COVID patients in beds. Why? Lack of trust in the data and reports created for them.
The internal and external motivations for healthcare to take data more seriously have only been accelerated by the impact of COVID-19.
As a data leader who started his role as Executive Director of Informatics & Analytics at MemorialCare during the pandemic, Jared Nunes knows a thing or two about building a data strategy that grants trust in healthcare.
After gaining clinical experience working in the health system and running his own construction business, Jared joined a healthcare data recording company where he taught himself the technology to shift the company fully online.
Over the course of his career, he learned to be nimble — to stay off the bleeding edge but on the cutting edge, as he puts it.
In this week’s episode, Jared shares insights from his three decades of work experience in a fun and fantastic conversation about:
- Advice for healthcare leaders to learn from other industries
- How to build trust in data at your organization and why it’s important
- The 4 pillars needed before we can leverage advanced analytics and data science
- The strategic initiative of leadership vision (and the 7 goals of MemorialCare)
- Demonstrating a vision of what’s possible in healthcare data
