A few years ago, Providence St. Joseph Health had difficulty finding
data and reporting assets, because these assets were spread across their multiple regions,
business entities and wide range of health services. When executives endorsed data-driven
decision-making as vital to their health care leadership, IT backed my data catalog
proof of concept application by turning it into a branded internal product called 'myHIway.'
Sure, there were commercial catalogs on the market to choose from. But by
comparison, my mobile-first product was agile, monetizable, cost effective, easy to implement, adaptable
to the diverse needs of health care business consumers, and able to quickly connect everyone
in the enterprise over a common baseline of facts.
myHIway - the enterprise fast lane to a common baseline of facts.
Today, the myHIway data catalog takes full advantage of Providence's
enterprise insights platform,
which combines search with AI to help caregivers find, bookmark, comment on, and request access to over
40k apps, reports, clinical metrics, data sets, predictions, dictionaries, standards, data models,
glossaries, training materials, and data science references from over 30 internal and external
sources of data and knowledge.
If Gartner's 2020 strategic planning assumptions for insight engines prove correct, Providence can expect
to derive at least twice as much business value from their analytics investments than without this catalog.
For drivers of health care transformation stuck in traffic, this catalog frees
up a lane or two.
