So who’s behind all this anyway?

The Compendium Data Catalog (formerly BIC) is a product of DTA Healthcare Solutions, a healthcare data management and consulting firm based in Minneapolis, MN. Our mission is to improve the efficiency and quality of the delivery of care and the experience of patients; this mission underlies everything we do and every solution we offer. Our consulting team is made up of seasoned professionals with years of experience working in hospitals and with care providers; this gives us insight into the unique challenges our clients face and a desire to do whatever we can to help. We leverage analytics expertise, healthcare experience, and process improvement know-how to empower clients with the skills and tools needed to make progress on operational challenges independently and with confidence.

Anyone who has worked any amount of time with healthcare data knows that there is a lot of it, it is very complex, and the sheer number of reports, dashboards, and metrics at any moderately sized healthcare organization is completely overwhelming. How to get a handle on the volume and complexity of these analytics objects is a constant question, and not at all an easy one to answer. So we have taken our experience both as full-time employees and consultants with healthcare organizations over the years to develop (and use ourselves!) a healthcare data management solution that meets the unique needs of our clients without a whole lot of things they don’t need and don’t want to pay for.

Two Approaches to Enterprise Data Governance

Our approach is based on years of experience observing two basic approaches to healthcare data management (hint: we choose the second!)

Comprehensive,
All-At-Once

Seeks to take on data governance for the whole enterprise at once, identifying an army of data stewards and attempting to address data quality issues enterprise-wide immediately.

• Overwhelming to the organization
• Difficult to resource and sustain
• Often fails due to the weight of the scope

Transparency-First,
Laser-Focused

Begins with making the catalog of data/reports and how things are defined visible to the organization, and then applies data governance first to key strategic metrics and data.

• Focus on metrics tied to strategy makes sense to people
• Can begin with limited resources
• Starts small with quick wins, moves incrementally from there
