Using Big Data to Analyze Health Care Trends

The latest monthly edition of VHHA’s FOCUS publication provides an overview of the immersive and interactive data and analytics tools developed to assist hospitals and health systems striving for enhanced operational efficiency, and to help better inform the public and policy makers about the complex nature of health care delivery. Those tools include the online Community Health Legislative Dashboards tool that enables users to review key population and health statistics by region (corresponding to legislative districts) throughout the Commonwealth; the Quality & Patient Safety Scorecards tool that enables users to review data showing hospital-specific performance on key quality, safety, and patient satisfaction measures; and the new VHHA Analytics tool, a subscription-based health care data analysis portal.
