The Journey to Data Awareness, Quality, and Integrity

Presenters at this session will explore Grande Ronde Hospital’s challenges and opportunities, as well as its journey to ensuring data quality and integrity. They will discuss how data governance, within the oversight of information governance, is needed to address these challenges and opportunities. And they’ll examine how the hospital determined its current state in order to map out its future state.

Attendees will learn about the tools and resources they’ll need to begin their own journey. Presenters will also dive into Grande Ronde Hospital’s strategy as it expands from a single critical access hospital to multiple medical clinics; how revenue and documentation integrity drive the focus on data governance; how limited resources can be maximized to optimize identified action plans; how data governance can enable organizations to put the right roadmap in place to address healthcare transformation for today and the future; and much more.
