Despite undisputed benefits that business intelligence (BI) can offer your organization, pervasive challenges can inhibit the application of BI efforts to organizational practice. It is still common for organizations to be stuck at the planning stage, or only be scratching at the surface. This presentation aims to help you overcome these challenges by identifying the most common and significant roadblocks and discuss common challenges that stand in the way of successfully leveraging information within your decision-making process, especially for small- to medium-sized teams.

Analysts James Cousins and Dr. Michael Johnson will discuss these challenges, ranging from the skillsets of your team, the support you receive from leadership, and the tools you have on hand. They share actionable solutions and demonstrate them as they apply to real healthcare scenarios.  

Learning Objectives

  1. Diagnose the challenges that prevent BI initiatives from taking off
  2. Identify strategies to address those challenges
  3. Illustrate, through use-cases, approaches that can help you successfully launch your BI efforts

  4. Discuss challenges that apply to you, and assess how the strategies represent unique opportunities for improvement of your processes x  

  5. Evaluate how you can continue to improve and positively impact your BI presence
