Beyond Data Warehousing: Delivering Direction Through Data
Data warehousing has traditionally been the foundation for making decisions in employer healthcare. Yet, data warehousing is no longer enough.
With a data warehouse: You are required to know all the right questions. You are then tasked with knowing how to properly structure your queries and you are expected to find the answers. And ultimately, you receive a data point. No direction. No actionability.
To illustrate this, look at the most innovative companies in the world. We all know that it’s not Amazon’s warehouses that make them one of the most innovative companies. Rather, their innovation is because of how fast they extract value from their warehouse and deliver it to you.
We can agree: The warehouse is an important link, but not the most important link in driving innovation.
Up until this point, health analytics has been the main tool to help employers and consultants visualize data and deliver reports. But, health analytics doesn’t go far enough to solve your problem. What do you actually do with the data once it’s presented? Health Analytics simply re-organizes your data warehouse. It’s easier to look at and analyze but still… No Direction. No Actionability.
We don’t need more data. With every question we ask, we’re presented with a new data set to digest. Now, we need intelligence - because if you include too much data and information, your value is lost. You become overloaded, sinking in a sea of numbers. On the other hand, if you strip your data and just lean on visuals, you lose the value.
You need a mix of both. That’s what we’ve built within our Health Intelligence platform.
With Health Intelligence employers are empowered through curated action steps. This allows you to efficiently address key opportunities to deliver plans and programs that fit your employees’ needs. We cannot reach true Health Intelligence without keeping in mind why we set out on this mission at the beginning: to help you protect your most valuable asset -- your people.
Join us on the journey to Health Intelligence, and be apart of something big. Something different. Something that will shape the future. Because without a community, it’s just a commodity.
