Healthcare Data Security, Part I: The problem with the future is the past
For more than a decade, U.S. healthcare and related enterprises have struggled to comply with the data privacy requirements of government regulations, not entirely for technical reasons, but also because the healthcare industry historically and culturally has been a user of technology that stands apart from business governance. This paper discusses new imperatives for healthcare data security and provides a prescription for improved protection. View summary

The critical EPMO: Enterprise Program Management Offices
This paper explores one solution that offers an effective way forward—the independent Enterprise Program Management Office (EPMO). This model is based on the core concept that organizations need to be served by IT, not the other way around—something that current frameworks ignore. Too often, the original mission served by an IT project is marginalized or deprioritized while managers focus on the technology itself—a common situation that puts the roles of government agencies, project managers and their IT vendors out of balance.

The need for better self-diagnoses by health systems: Preventing adverse events by mining “triggers” in patient data
According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), hospitals need more effective ways to identify events causing harm to patients, to quantify the degree and severity of harm, and to select and test changes to reduce harm. While there has been slow progress toward proactive prevention of adverse events, an innovative solution based on the IHI’s Global Trigger Tool offers great promise. This new Patient Safety Service identifies what has gone wrong and supports patient safety teams in improving clinical care processes. With the application of advanced analytics, it may even catch adverse events before they lead to patient harm. View summary
