In 2010, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) implemented a groundbreaking healthcare technology tool specifically designed to let clients easily view and download their personal health information. This came in the form of a secure web portal called “Blue Button,” in reference to the blue-colored oval that users clicked to see their complete medical histories.
Now that the healthcare industry has largely made the transition to electronic health records (EHRs), most hospitals and independent providers have become inundated with massive amounts of data.
It’s one thing to be able to capture data, but quite another to derive meaningful information from it. Enter the healthcare analytics sector, which delivers crucial insights that can help organizations survive and thrive.
