Actionable Intelligence

Real-time analytics, during the pandemic and beyond

Seldom has the need for granular, accessible, actionable data been made more apparent than during the fast-changing coronavirus crisis – for both building a clinical knowledge-base for effective decision support and ensuring the right information is routed to the right stakeholders at the right time. The pandemic has been an object lesson in the value of healthcare analytics and the easy availability of critical data, whether for hospital surge planning or safe workplace reopening strategies.

Going forward, there will be lasting lessons from this crisis about how data is exchanged, how it's managed, how it's visualized, how it's put to work informing patient care decisions and population health.
