Stephanie Crabb, Principal at Immersive, joined us at #GC3HIMSS to talk about Data Governance.
We discuss the following with Stephanie on this episode:
- Helping clients to do things with their data that they never thought possible.
- Data Governance often starts with assessments.
- The Triple Aim initiative has been a super-motivating force to improve Healthcare as a whole and has big implications for Data Governance.
- Challenges related to silos of information(data), processes and people.
- Observation: Most organizations fail to do comprehensive ePHI data inventories.
- Risks of leaving data unprotected; “We are porous on the outside and soft in the middle in terms of data protection (in Healthcare)”.
- How does data governance differ for very small versus very large organizations?
- Data Governance is constantly evolving, ever changing job.
- Observation: “We are not good at destroying old data (in Healthcare)”
- Data Quality – Analytics depends on correct, trusted and secure data
