As we get closer to the midyear mark of 2019, it’s important to take note of how your healthcare organization is performing. Is your hospital operating at its potential? Have you met your Q2 goals? If not, what actions are you taking to reach them in the next quarter? Asking these sorts of tough questions will help you understand what your organization has accomplished — and what still needs to be done.

If you’ve not quite reached your goals yet, worry not. There are a number of ways in which implementing data analytics can help. Here is a roundup of May’s data-driven industry news to give you the inspiration your organization needs to start the second half of the year strong:

Boost Efficiency in The OR
Data analytics have the ability to drive efficiency in the OR, from relaying productivity to implementing decision report. But without a positive response from staff, that data will fall flat. Rallying your whole team behind what data analytics can do for them and how they’re perceived is vital to truly maximize organizational benefit.

Ground Skyrocketing Costs
It’s no secret that healthcare has become increasingly more expensive over the years.
