During a workshop at the Healthcare Analytics Symposium held in Chicago in July, a study was conducted by the Healthcare Center of Excellence (healthcarecoe.org) to determine what the participants perceived were the top challenges they faced in implementing analytics at their healthcare organization. The participants included people from all levels of healthcare organizations from locations across the country. Each participant was asked to identify up to 5 challenges they faced in implementing healthcare analytics. They were also asked to then work in a group and develop 3 solutions to overcome the top challenges they identified. While the challenges facing healthcare analytics implementation may not surprise anyone, the ranking of the challenges might receive some unexpected attention.
