International Use Cases for Modern Health Analytics

Description

The task of mapping international use cases for modern health analytics will contribute to more knowledge of modern technologies in the field of data analysis used in the health and research sectors internationally. The results will be used as a source of inspiration and basis for a concept study concerning the establishment of a modern national health analytics platform. "Health Analytics" is pointed out by several major consulting companies, including Gartner, as one of the most important international priority areas for improving patient safety, the efficiency and quality of health services.

In this task, we want a supplier-neutral approach and focus on health analytics technology that has been tried out and increasingly used, primarily for secondary purposes. The questions we want answers to are:

  • Which "technologies" are on the rise, and which are most mature?
  • Where are they used?
  • Which user groups do they meet?
  • For what purpose are they used?
  • Source data and the adaptation of this?
  • Degree of "automation"? (ETL)
  • What are the experiences?
    - Effects (patient safety, quality, productivity, resource use)
    - Challenges
    - Competence needs
    - Costs (investment and operation)

Goals

The task will contribute to more knowledge of modern technologies in the field of data analysis used in the health and research sectors internationally. The research will be based on a selection of relevant international use cases with particular focus on experiences and identified advantages. The aim is a better understanding and safer basis for the choice of concept, procurement method, collaborating partner(s) and competence needs for the development of a national health analytics platform.
