As many readers of my blog may know, my new book Healthcare Analytics for Quality and Performance Improvement is due to be released on October 14th by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. I wrote this book because I observed that a gap often exists between many healthcare information technology (IT) professionals, healthcare analytics experts, and those professionals on the front lines dedicated to improving the quality and safety of patient care. Although they share common goals of improving healthcare efficiency and quality, they approach healthcare improvement with different perspectives, skill sets, and vocabularies.
Healthcare Analytics for Quality and Performance Improvement is intended to bridge the gap, and to provide a common reference point from which healthcare IT, analytics experts, and quality improvement professionals can work together on their common aims of improving healthcare. Using the many tools and methods discussed in the book, healthcare organizations will be better able to leverage the growing volumes of data being collected, the unique capabilities offered by healthcare analytics tools and techniques, and the efforts of experts in all related professions to achieve their transformation goals.
