How to Take an Incremental Approach to Data Governance

June 27th, 2017 1:00PM EDT

Healthcare organizations adopting or optimizing new health IT tools often face significant data governance challenges.  When Baltimore-based GBMC Healthcare System started down the path of building an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), it quickly faced the same issues confronting most organizations: a lack of standardized metric definitions and the corresponding low confidence and trust in its data.

In this webcast, Juan Negrin, Manager of Business Intelligence and Data Governance, will explain GBMC Healthcare System’s step-by-step approach to tackling its data governance issues as it rolled out one of its EDW components and later converted to a new, integrated Epic Systems EHR.

We will explore:
  • Specific, manageable approaches to applying data governance methodologies to health IT development initiatives
  • Strategies for developing success-driven project plans with attainable benchmarks and goals
  • Identifying and engaging key stakeholders to implement sustainable data governance best practices
  • The critical role of strong and coordinated leadership throughout the organization
  • Using a LEAN continuous improvement process to maintain a model of data governance throughout the organization
