Top 5 challenges CIOs face using data analytics

Just over half of CIOs would rate their hospital's data analytics program a seven or higher on a scale of one to 10, while about a quarter scored their programs a four or lower, according to a recent survey from LexisNexis Risk Solutions Health Care.

Sixty-eight healthcare executives responded to the survey. Ninety-eight percent of respondents  worked in data governance roles such as senior management, CIO and C-suite.

The survey revealed the top five reasons CIOs are not using data to improve care:

  1. Data governance
  2. Limited budgets
  3. Limited technology/integration challenges
  4. Data reliability
  5. Institutional vision

Here is how respondents ranked the types of data or components most important for analytics strategies:

  1. Patient clinical data (94 percent)
  2. Provider and financial data (84 percent)
  3. EHR integration (82 percent)
  4. Data related to clinical efficiencies (69 percent)
