Self-Service Analytics – Latest Health Tech News

In this digest, we present you hot reads dedicated to the topic of self-service analytics in healthcare. Self-service analytics allow non-tech users to create and access specific sets of health data, queries and reports on demand, without IT intervention.  

Companies that utilize self-service analytics often find it highly beneficial, since it opens ways for empowering use of data in the organization. For instance, self-service analytics allow business users to see big picture company insights or direct results of their work fast and exactly when and how they need to. Patients also can access statistics about their doctor visits, treatment or medication.  

Healthcare self-service analytics is all about the people   

Though the trend for digitalization has been on for a while, only in the past year working remotely and utilizing the benefits of technology have become an unavoidable standard in the healthcare industry. The CDO of Penn University Medicine sums up changes and challenges that took place in technology, processes and with people. He underlines the impact self-service analytics makes on processes and people that use them, as well as on analytics teams, leaving them with less work supporting those solutions and more time for working on relevant projects.

Google is working on patient-centered medical information management

Patients who know and understand their health information can make more informed decisions and get better results in their healthcare needs. For this, Google is recruiting users to understand how they want to interact with their medical records data. Potentially, this will help create next level user-centered software that will help patients to manage their health on their own in the future and give a great boost for self-service analytics too.

The old and the new: Dashboards    

Very often BI tools are very business-led and adopted without a user in mind. When it comes to dashboards, users and analysts find themselves tangled in issues like under-utilization, broadness or unnecessary specificity and customization problems. The disconnect between a BI tool and workflows is costly in more ways than just financially. More resources are allocated to tweak and change these tools, support them and fix issues. More time also goes toward teaching users on how to utilize them properly. As a result, there comes an imminent rise of automated, mobile, bite-sized self-service analytics, which is personalized and versatile enough to drive decisions and actions.
