Re: How can hospitals use Clinical Data Warehousing apps effectively?
Yah Terry is absolutely right. What is the use with loads of data if is there in no analytics on top of it. Be is business data or clinical data one need analytics on them. That's where you derive meaningful information. And about hopitals using different softwares/data warehousing application diffrenently as there are no standard guidelines unlike ICD-10. Its like people trying to be reduce the cost of healthcare and dont know where to start from, so everybody things healthcare IT is where they have all the answers to their present owes. But unfortunately if you dont have the current & correct data and an alaytical organization the owes are going to continue for some time to come.

Re: How can hospitals use Clinical Data Warehousing apps effectively?
A case study might yield some insights, but hospitals and health systems all use their data warehouses differently, depending on the software, their environment, and their goals. Also, getting a clinical data warehouse is only the first step. Organizations must also apply the right kind of analytic software to the data. And they need to integrate their systems well enough so that they can deliver data to the warehouse quickly. If the data is not up to date, it's useless to clinicians.

How can hospitals use Clinical Data Warehousing apps effectively?
This study tells us something about the rate at which hospitals are investing in the software, but is there any good research on which organizations use the technology more effectively? That's something I'd like to investigate more, potentially through a case study for IW.
