Despite potential perceived challenges, switching to an outside analytics partner is worth the effort. After years of gathering and analyzing data using an in-house system, it may seem like too daunting a process to switch to an outside analytics partner. There are many issues you will likely consider, and you may have to overcome hurdles as you learn the ins and outs of working with an external partner.
Conversely, there are also risks to consider if you opt to keep things the same. Sticking with the status quo could lead to investments in costly service-line developments that are not equipped for success, ill-informed marketing outreach, and growth planning initiatives that are poorly executed. In particular, a multi-state hospital system has many compelling reasons to make the move.
- State to state data variances can include different release schedules, varying code and data formats.
- An in-house system will likely have challenges accurately reformatting and curating the collected data in a timely fashion, leading to errors and unreliable reporting.
Aware of these issues and determined to find a better solution, one hospital system made the switch to Stratasan. As a result, they are now experiencing tremendous time and financial savings quarter over quarter, in addition to more effective strategic planning.
If you find you are facing similar challenges, then it may be time to engage an outside partner who can streamline your process and set you up for success. Interested in learning more?
