“As the US healthcare landscape continues to shift to a more evidence-based system, it becomes imperative for hospitals to use data effectively in order to meet performance goals. By employing tools for improvement, healthcare businesses can become savvier about their business operations and facilitate real and demonstrable change,” said Gilbertson.
“Managing your hospital business today requires the ability to analyze data and understand the dynamics of your programs.
