Data Governance and the Data and Information Lifecycle Management
The presenters will take a deep dive into the widespread adoption of health IT tools such as EHRs to capture clinical and financial data to support care providers and operations. Organizations are struggling with how to explain the need for a coordinated strategy and effort for taking data from raw collection to true value and outcomes. They will share the approach at BJC HealthCare, a 15-hospital health system, and explore the development of a data and information lifecycle model, as well as a patient information flow model, which were part of BJC’s restructuring efforts. Defining the data and information lifecycle sets the stage for a look at the outcomes of reinvigorating data governance efforts and the overall data enterprise strategy.
- Attendees will learn an approach for describing data as an asset, based on patient data flow and the data and information lifecycle
- Attendees will learn how to apply specific tools and processes bringing vision into reality within a healthcare organization
- Attendees will learn the foundation framework of the data and information lifecycle

Data-Driven Process Redesign Reduces Complications and Improves Quality in Joint Replacements
Focused on the Institute of Healthcare Improvement Triple Aim of improving the quality of care, reducing the cost of providing care and providing a great patient experience, Thibodaux Regional Medical Center in Louisiana leveraged its enterprise data warehouse and analytics applications to identify its most costly and widely variable processes. This led to a Total Hip (THA) and Total Knee (TKA) Arthroplasty care improvement initiative that earned a national patient safety award. Using a collaborative, evidence-based approach, Thibodaux Regional established new standard care processes, created an educational program, redesigned order sets and workflows and deployed a joint replacement analytics application. As a result, the organization reduced complications by 76.5 percent, reduced length of stay by 38.5 percent for TKA and 23.3 percent for THA and lowered costs by $815,103 in less than two years.
- Identify the patient-safety and care-quality reasons why Total Hip (THA) and Total Knee (TKA) Arthroplasty processes need to be examined at any healthcare organization
- Explain how care variation can lead to greater costs, higher risk of surgical complications and decreased patient satisfaction
- Describe how analytics tools help identify care process variation and uncover opportunities for improvement
- Summarize how to develop a cross-functional team to address care variation and transform care processes toward greater standardization and efficiency
- List how data analytics applications providing real-time insight can help teams track progress while identifying and overcoming obstacles
