Why is the healthcare industry lagging behind the trend in predictive analytics?
Whilst in the past it could have been argued that medical notes were hand written and thus harder to process surely the huge reserves of e-records and emergence of connected medical devices makes this a no brainer now?
With the prospects of improved patient health outcomes and cost savings made possible by predictive analytics is the failure to act gross negligence on the part of the healthcare industry?
Health Catalyst recently released a survey of hospital executives on the role of predictive analytics in the healthcare industry. Though 80% of the executives surveyed believe forward-looking data analytics could significantly improve the industry, only 31% of respondents have integrated these advantages in their organizations. Even worse, 19% have no plans to do so.
