The Shelf Life of Healthcare Data
Timeliness and Accuracy Are Essential – And Often Overlooked
What happens when healthcare data begins to resemble leftovers that have been sitting in the fridge for too long? Nothing good, as you might expect.
Healthcare systems generate tremendous amounts of data – and everything within healthcare from practice management to billing to recruiting to marketing depends on that information. It’s quite literally the lifeblood for any payer, provider, or patient.
