CASE STUDY: MULTI-DOMAIN MDM

Kyle B. Smith, Director, Clinical Data Integration, SUTTER HEALTH

Healthcare providers are going through a time of radical change. The business of providing care to patients is being transformed by changes in federal and state law, creation of Accountable Care Organizations, changes in insurance programs, and the growth of Health Information Exchanges. Provisioning reliable data to meet requirements on both the clinical and operational sides of any hospital or physician office is increasingly being seen as mission critical. Bad or faulty data can pose a threat to patient safety and affects the matrix of relationships that make up the healthcare environment.

Sutter Health, a leading healthcare company in Northern California, has seen its business and technical leadership come together jointly to support MDM as a strategic initiative. The focus on development of a single-instance, multi-domain MDM implementation—with multiple data entities or categories mastered in a single hub—has been accompanied by identification of measurable business benefits in data quality and operational cost savings. This case study describes the primary success factors behind Sutter Health’s MDM initiative, including:

  • Establishing a productive relationship between Data Governance and the MDM initiatives
  • Aligning the data/solution architecture with business priorities in the ordering of MDM data domains
  • Using the multi-domain MDM strategy to enhance the value of data as a business asset
