Development & Implementation of a Scalable, Formalized Data Governance Structure at New York-Presbyterian Hospital

New York-Presbyterian has spent two years developing Data Governance as part of its broader analytic strategy. With an enterprise composed of three corporately independent institutions, we've encountered interoperability challenges similar to other health systems, further compounded by our highly matrixed yet independent organizations and associated infrastructures. In laying the foundation for advanced analytics and population health, we developed a governance strategy that shifted us away from heavy reliance on ad hoc reporting and point solutions (often troubled with inconsistencies, inefficiencies, or inaccessible data) and towards organization and transparency. Our new formalized structure promotes open communication and collaboration by centralizing & standardizing metrics, terminology and other resources online.
