ITuC2 - A Health Center's Journey to Integrated Data

‐ Oct 24, 2023 3:00pm

Health centers nationwide struggle to integrate all their data from fragmented sources in clinical, financial, and operational departments. Valley Professionals Community Health Center, in Indiana, had a vision to change that: breaking down data silos and uniting their data in one cutting-edge, interactive analytics platform. With support from the HRSA-funded organization HealthEfficient, Valley Professionals successfully achieved this vision. How? Now that’s a story.

This presentation will detail the obstacles Valley Professionals faced in implementing its vision and will provide strategies to overcome challenges and achieve success. From defining system requirements to managing the project, to affordably obtaining data from five vendors to building a data warehouse to store it all, the Valley Professionals and HealthEfficient teams required patience, teamwork, and know-how. This presentation explores Valley Professionals' two-and-a-half-year journey to streamline its systems. Valley Professionals’ CEO and staff from HealthEfficient will provide a framework for integrating data sources and reporting tools into one platform. They will discuss how they met unexpected obstacles, negotiated repeatedly with vendors, automated data flow and transformation, and built interactive dashboards for the health center’s board and leadership. Presenters will discuss strategies and methods that will support other health centers nationwide in replicating this success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop project management strategies to promote successful creation of an integrated data analytics system
  • Recognize the technology concepts and layers needed to support an integrated data analytics system
  • Identify and engage key stakeholders in communication and collaboration to ensure the project’s success
