Data-Driven Healthcare Management: From a Philosophy to an Info-Structure

Esforços empresariais e científicos reuniram grandes quantidades de dados que agora podem ajudar na aquisição de uma compreensão íntima da empresa, levando, assim, a serviços de apoio à decisão estratégicas e táticas de valor agregado. As empresa de saúde de hoje, apoiadas por sistemas de TI de alta tecnologia com base Telemedicina, também geram volumes de fatos relacionados com dados de saúde.

A proposta implica a extração de conhecimento tangível a partir de dados de saúde  por meio de um conjunto de TI orientada Data Services Group (GDS).

Business and scientific endeavours now routinely gather large quantities of data that can help in acquiring an intimate understanding of the parent enterprise, thus leading to value-added strategic and tactical decision support services. Today’s healthcare enterprise, supported by T elemedicine based high-tech IT systems, also generate volumes of data—health related facts. It is our contention that data repositories, storing vital health data, need to be charged with harvesting data-driven decision support towards strategic planning and management of the healthcare enterprise—a vision shared by the MSC Telemedicine project. The proposal entails the extraction of tangible knowledge from raw health data by way of a suite of IT-driven Group Data Services (GDS). Here, we firstly present the philosophical foundation of a GDS environment that gleans knowledge from health data repositories, and secondly we specify a universal and generic GDS info-structure—the IT manifestation of the GDS provider—that is a confluence of data warehousing techniques, data exchange and collation tools, data- service-specification front-ends, data analysis and interpretation routines and data visualisation paradigms.
