One of the many challenges faced by modern healthcare providers is the increasing demand that they demonstrate a deep understanding of the efficiency and quality of care they deliver. Increasingly, payments are as tied to the provision of service as they are to the ability to measure, interpret and report on it. Frequently this challenge is compounded by the lack of measured information or information systems that are in disarray. In short, healthcare organizations must be able to make decisions based upon data generated during operations. Utilizing business intelligence (BI) technology to drive business and clinical decisions is the only way to affordably meet today's data analysis requirements. A good BI tool increases efficiency, reduces operational expenses, contributes to producing superior clinical outcomes and improves the ability to make large strategic decisions.

Implementing BI solutions is not as simple as buying software and having IT manage it. This article addresses the four primary challenges to successfully implementing business intelligence capabilities: (1) adopting an information-driven culture, (2) defining key performance metrics (KPM) to track, (3) guaranteeing data quality and (4) finding and implementing BI tools that meet an organization's needs.

Given the challenges healthcare organizations face today and will face tomorrow, the ability of an organization to transform data into information and information into intelligence will be vital to its survival. As the economics of healthcare evolve, modern healthcare organizations need a robust set of methodologies, processes, architectures and technologies to capture and transform raw into meaningful and useful information. Effectively implementing and utilizing BI is increasingly important for the healthcare industry, empowering an organization to leverage clinical information to enhance decision making, improve outcomes and, ultimately, remain competitive.
