Healthcare - Business Intelligence
Current Issues and Challenges
Healthcare organizations of all types are under tremendous pressure
to improve performance and the quality of the care they provide.
At the same time, healthcare organizations must make their services
financially affordable for patients, while still providing a decent
return for shareholders or taxpayers. Healthcare organizations need
to respond to the intense pressure from payers, purchasers, buying
groups, governmental authorities and quality watchdog organizations.
Overall, they must improve the value of care.
Healthcare organizations are being driven toward service specialization
to deepen expertise as well as brand. Specialty care can be provided
- Optical services
- Specific disease support centers - diabetes care, heart care,
orthopaedic services and pulmonary care
- Birthing centres
- Sports medicine
- Vaccination programs
These specialty niches operate contracted segments of larger organizations.
The trend toward contracted services is driving competition and
smarter ways to operate.
