Health care BI systems wave of the future for ACO participation

Business intelligence (BI) expert and author Laura Madsen wrote Healthcare Business Intelligence, due out later this month from Wiley. In the book, Madsen stresses to health care providers that maintaining data quality as it's piped through systems -- despite variable interoperability between those systems -- is the key to getting quality analytics from clinical data.

In this podcast interview, Madsen discusses strategies for health care providers -- big and small -- for capitalizing on the next wave of analytics and BI technology in order to leverage participation in accountable care organizations (ACOs), as well as to tighten up business processes.

Madsen also will be the keynote speaker at the Sept. 20 Healthcare Business Intelligence Summit in Minneapolis; SearchHealthIT is a media sponsor of that conference.
