Health systems are increasing their investments in technology that will boost big data analytics strategies and precision medicine, but limited resources and lack of reimbursement for these tools are still significant barriers for organizations, according to a report from the Center for Connected Medicine and KLAS Research.
As healthcare continues to shift to value-based care, health systems are seeking to harness all available data to make more informed decisions and deliver more effective treatments. “Data analytics, precision medicine, and patient engagement are highly connected to the shift from fee-for-service to value-base care. As provider organizations continue to shift their payment models and take on more risk, there is a greater need for data visibility so that organizations can manage their most at-risk populations and make better care decisions,” the report stated.
