April 10, 2014 - Big Data: Challenges, Changes, and Benefits
Big data, the combined billions of pieces of information available electronically, can be expected to change the whole realm of managerial decision making, according to Tom Davenport, a business analyst and the President's Distinguished Professor in Management and Information Technology at Babson College.
The January issue of Health Affairs focuses on the benefits of "communication-and-resolution programs” (CRPs), designed to facilitate the communication between healthcare providers and patients and families following unforeseen outcomes, including errors. Intended to decrease the potentially adversarial nature of these conversations, the programs include formal training and support for those involved in the event. There is early evidence that investment in training like this can be associated with fewer malpractice suits and improved patient safety.
While there is emerging evidence to support CRPs, they’ll most likely be lengthy, expensive propositions. Work that Plexus is involved in currently suggests another way.
