Drowning in a sea of Big Data? Is your organization’s data actively working to provide adequate information to achieve positive results or, is it dragging the organization down? If you are dealing with computer data overload and poor data integrity, your organization could be headed in a downward spiral and that isn’t good. Gain control now and benefit from your organization’s data by learning and applying the principles and practices of information governance. Turn a grossly underused and ever-growing sea of data into a veritable gold mine of information. Healthcare has been slow to become computerized and adopt information governance compared to other industries. Get your organization up to speed and experience the all great benefits of this internal organizational resource.
Organizations today are collecting massive amounts of computerized data, usually much more than ever was realized or imagined. Data, like everything else, comes with a price tag to store and maintain. Consider these points that will be addressed in this webinar:
- Data can be effectively collected and managed to facilitate efforts to meet an organization’s mission and goals, improve regulatory compliance, reduce costs and gain an edge over competitors.
- Achieve levels of data integrity necessary to enable optimal, informed patient care decisions and efficient, cost-effective organizational decisions using strategic control methods and standards.
- Information governance processes manage data while ensuring it is protected and secure throughout the lifecycle, including final disposition.
- Successful information governance plan will contain continuous audit and review processes to maintain enterprise-wide data governance.
This webinar will focus on developing enterprise-wide information governance practices that benefit the organization in numerous ways. Find out about the three sectors that make up information governance and what each sector contributes. The seven steps to develop an enterprise-wide information governance plan will be shared. The differences between data governance and information governance will be clearly delineated.
Did you know that information is an organizational asset? That is correct. This fact is often overlooked. We will explain why information should be considered an asset, and why recognizing it as such is critical to the organization.
Learn what data is and how it is transformed into information, and how information is then applied as knowledge. What exactly is Big Data? We explain that too, delving into structured and unstructured information along with the attributes of each. Many examples of both types of information formats are provided.
Strategic management practices and information standards to harness Big Data will be shared. Data has a lifecycle. Let us walk you through the steps of the lifecycle. In many cases, there is a point where data has outlived its usefulness and has met officially set retention periods for disposition. Following approved destruction procedures for data frees up more space on the cloud, on other storage media or data residing at an off-site facility. We will explain why proper disposition practices can reduce risk.
Information governance is best managed by experienced and qualified data analysts. There is a growing demand for data analysts, but the supply currently does not meet the demand. The qualifications for this position will be shared in detail. Learn about similar positions that also facilitate information governance. People currently in other professions that are interested in becoming data analysts will benefit to see what jobs and skills best transition to data analysts.
If you are looking to make the most of what your organization already has to create major organizational improvements, reduce costs and control Big Data in your organization, this is the webinar for you.
