Data Governance Drives Effective Analytics

We recently came across Aberdeen’s report “Nimble IT and the Data Layer: The Lynchpin of Analytical Success,” which summarizes survey results of data management professionals and analytics users.  The report explores the relationship between IT environments and decision-making by business users.

Balancing Privacy and Access to Information

Privacy Traditionally, privacy of Personal Health Information (PHI) has been largely managed by using password/username–based access control lists. Personnel are entrusted with the passwords as they extract data and then clean, modify, de-identify, and analyse the information. As a result, today, organizations rely on their employee’s best judgement to safeguard information. This method is somewhat effective, but far from excellent. Employee error is the top security threat for 75% of healthcare organizations (HCOs) in the US, according to the Ponemon
