Data Analytics Drives Improvements in Population Health Management [#Infographic]

Recent research indicates that advancing analytics creates opportunities for healthcare to rethink their population health approach.

Healthcare IT continues to face monumental changes as the industry works to overhaul service models and integrate advanced data analytics for improved population health management.

But challenges remain: According to the infographic, issues surrounding the interoperability of data and systems stand as some of the biggest hurdles to adoption, although organizations also struggle to manage large data volumes and fund analytics initiatives.
