Data and Information Management
Efficient Hospital Information Management Systems & Clinical Data Management begins with OR Efficiencies.
We’ve all heard the expressions “Information is Power” and “You can’t manage what you can’t Measure” — Many organizations still lack the technology to produce complete and accurate reports; many organizations lack in-house staff with the background in statistical methods that is required to perform appropriate analyses, test the statistical assumptions, make adjustments for missing data. In organizations where these factors prevail, there is no quantifiable foundation to guide decision making.
Data and the effective conversion of data into useful information is critical guiding fact-based decisions; to minimize or eliminate internal politics as a factor influencing decisions. The OR Efficiencies team possesses one of the most extensive data-base resources in the industry.
