Many state health and human service agencies continue to grapple with how to best manage the vast and daily influx of data. Managing data on the scale of a state agency is an onerous task and concerns around data availability, usability, integrity, and security are compounded when there is limited governance around data. The first step in moving state agencies towards a more proactive, data-driven environment with the ability to support predictive analytics is by creating an enterprise-wide data governance organization.

Implementing a data governance organization initiates a shift in how an organization utilizes and optimizes data by breaking down data and communication silos, enabling the pursuit of population health analytics and business intelligence tools, and paving the way for Master Data Management (MDM), Master Client Index (MCI), and Master Provider Directory (MPD). Myers and Stauffer will discuss the benefits of data governance and what are the next steps after implementing a new data governance organization.
