To be successful in the future, health centers will need a system of tools that work for all members of the care team, administrators and executives, community-based care givers, and the patient. Business intelligence tools will help community health centers prove they are already serving, and well-positioned to care for complex populations facing a variety of socioeconomic challenges. Health centers need data to show they are caring for safety-net populations who comprise a significant percentage of the highest risk, highest cost patients in our health system at a lower cost, while achieving better outcomes and increasing patient satisfaction.
- Define business intelligence in a community health setting and why it's valuable to have it now.
