Data is the foundation of everything we do in healthcare. It represents what we know about a patient, and when it's wrong or incomplete, our decisions can be impaired and good care can be compromised. In addition, when sharing data with other people or organizations we have to consider if what we are sharing is useful.
Charlie Harp, CEO of Clinical Architecture, discussed the spectrum of healthcare data quality, how it impacts the care we provide, and the critical decisions healthcare organizations make every day.
