Competing on Healthcare Analytics:
The Foundational Approach to Population Health Analytics
The rate of change in the healthcare industry has been staggering. From Electronic Health Records to ICD-10 to Population Health, few industries have undergone such change in such a short amount of time. The silver lining is the treasure trove of digital data, which will enable providers to analyze and compare information across thousands of patients instead of relying on the anecdotal evidence they previously used.
To access this knowledge, organizations are turning to analytics. Unfortunately, many organizations are rushing to implement any type of healthcare analytics program without consideration of the steps that must take place to build an effective, long-term analytics solution.
Competing on Healthcare Analytics is a practical guide to implementing population health analytics containing over 100 pages of advice along with over 30 full-color diagrams. The book makes a clear argument for how an analytics initiative should be implemented using Professor Bennett’s foundational approach and identifies the most critical success factors. Healthcare organizations should re-access their approach to implementing population health analytics after reading this book.
The book includes:
- A detailed healthcare transformation model which tracks the progression of analytics to become an “Analytics Focused” healthcare organization;
- A discussion of the value of using the foundational approach;
- Research studies performed with healthcare organization participants supporting the approach;
- A healthcare organization readiness assessment;
- An implementation roadmap with critical success factors;
- A discussion on what it takes to be a healthcare analytics competitor.
Professor Bennett has been presenting his approach to implementing population health analytics to audiences across the country to rave reviews since the summer of 2014. Now it is your turn to access this knowledge that has been honed through his work in healthcare as well as in other industries with clients such as Microsoft, BellSouth, Chase and many others.

This is an excellent primer on the fundamentals of Healthcare analytics. It gives you a very easy to follow road map to follow to get started too. I recommend it to anyone starting out in the area of big data and Healthcare analytics
The author provides a good, high-level description of what needs to be considered to successfully implement an enterprise analytics program. Readers will definitely need to tap other resources for details on the topics he covers, but the book’s conciseness makes it a great continuous reference to ensure that all of the not-so-obviously (until reading the book) related aspects of a successful program deployment are covered.
