Health Catalyst’s Role in Healthcare Analytics in APAC
The future of the healthcare industry is increasingly being shaped by data and analytics. That’s why, for this episode of Owning the Future of Healthcare by Health Catalyst, host Daniel Litwin was joined by Farhana Nakhooda, Health Catalyst Senior Vice President of Healthcare and Life Sciences for APAC, who shared her influential insights.
In particular, Nakhooda contributed to an in-depth discussion about the organization’s impact on the efficient and equitable use of data and analytics in the Asia-Pacific region, or APAC.
Because the region is so large, Nakhooda said it’s impossible to generalize about universal trends in the area. However, when viewed through the lens of developed and developing markets, some easier-to-identify groupings and trends emerge.
While developed markets are more prepared for analytics than their developing counterparts thanks to, in many cases, years of EMR use, that doesn’t mean the adoption of more robust analytics will be simple. For example, digitization varies greatly among even developed markets, which can lead to implementation challenges.
Among developing markets, work is still centralized around enabling data capture in the first place.
Even though these segments of the region are at different stages of preparedness and adoption, Nakhooda said they do have some things in common, such as a requirement to share data with their governments.
Health Catalyst is working to help the region increase understanding of data security and the structure around data sharing and governance, as well as to help increase data and analytics literacy in the region, which is shining a spotlight on the power of data in improving outcomes and more.
