In our complex, multi-site tertiary care imaging department our challenge is to gather data about our imaging operations and create insights from it to help us make better business decisions, streamline operations and optimize access to care. Combining insights from modality data and imaging IT systems removes ambiguity associated with data and results in a rich information set that enables actionable insights. This approach helps us determine how to deliver care that is focused on increased value for the health system through elimination of inefficiencies and better outcomes for patients.
