Is Big Data Fueling Breaches?
Data breaches continue to dominate healthcare headlines, leading one to wonder if the unprecedented growth of Big Data is to blame? Health Data Consortium CEO Chris Boone shares his thoughts on this subject and more.
Healthcare dashboards are often computers screens, printouts, or other displays that allow hospitals and healthcare organizations to monitor and gain greater insight into their key performance indicators (KPIs). Based on the goals of the organization, dashboards can be customized to display any relevant information and can be updated in real-time to allow for quick and simple monitoring.
Dashboards can also be customized to show data relevant to hospital administrators, patients, physicians, and other stakeholders. Dashboards provide users with a simple way to pull reports and monitor quality of care, while acting as an easy clinical decision aide tool. Dashboards are beneficial to doctors, nurses, and staff because they provide a very quick overview, often with charts and graphs, allowing busy individuals to quickly take in the necessary information and make appropriate decisions.
