This IDC Health Insights report discusses IDC Health Insights' Big Data and Analytics (BDA) Maturity Model, which provides healthcare executives with a road map to successful BDA deployment. Healthcare organizations are beginning to understand the benefits of having access to new data sources and advanced analytics tools and as a result are looking to invest in the BDA technology stack. Healthcare executives can use the maturity model to determine where their organization currently sits on the maturity model and understand what future investments in people, technology, and data are required. The healthcare supplier market for BDA is using the BDA technology stack as the foundation of their analytics, which provides the benefit of the technology without having to make skill set investments.
Cynthia Burghard, research director, Accountable Care IT Strategies, cautions healthcare organizations. Burghard says, "The ability for healthcare organizations to digest the results of these new analytics and translate those into actions that improve quality and manage costs provides the greatest hurtle to full maturity."
