Deloitte: Healthcare lagging in data modernization efforts

As organizations' operations become more reliant on the gathering and analysis of massive amounts of data, they are increasingly using cloud computing to store that data, and transitioning to modernized data management platforms to integrate with the cloud.

Despite the importance of these data modernization efforts, however, a new report from Deloitte found that, compared to other industries, healthcare is moving slowly toward full adoption of more advanced databases.

Here are three key takeaways from the report, which surveyed more than 500 decision-makers in the areas of cloud and data management at medium to large U.S. companies in industries including life sciences and healthcare; energy, resources and industrials; financial services; technology, media and telecommunications; consumer; and government and public services.

1. Of the leaders surveyed, those in healthcare and the life sciences were among the most likely not to have begun implementation of modernized platforms, second only to those in technology, media and telecommunications.

2. Healthcare fell just below the average in terms of those who have fully completed adoption of data modernization: 33 percent of respondents in healthcare have done so, compared to an average of 34 percent across all industries.

3. Respondents in the healthcare industry were the least likely of all industries to agree with the statement, "I believe we will succeed in successfully modernizing our data over the next several years." Just half of healthcare leaders agreed, compared to an overall average of 62 percent.
