Clinical and Business Maturity
The Clinical Business Intelligence maturity model will assess the firm's effectiveness in use of IT applications to support clinical business intelligence as well as analytical pursuits. There are 5 core competency measurements in the HIMSS Analytics C&BI analysis: Data, Enterprise, Leadership, Targets, and Analysts, and a yardstick value from 1-5 will be assigned to each for each core competency. The methodology is holistic, touching on the cultural aspects of the organization as well as the technical, allowing a longitudinal view of the organization's analytics program.
