Most companies recognize that they have opportunities through data analytics to raise productivity, improve decision making, and gain competitive advantage. Unfortunately, the majority of initiatives fail to move beyond the experimental stage, or analytic insights are not operationalized back into the business as intended. The causes range from inaccessibility to siloed data, time invested in continually gathering the data before performing analytics, and long lead times for resources from IT. Recently, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) reviewed Dell EMC Analytic Insights Module, which is engineered to smooth out these friction points in the data analytics lifecycle. It’s delivered on Dell EMC Native Hybrid Cloud, combining a self-service data analytics experience with cloud-native application development (more…)
The wide breadth of benefits from data analytics comes in many forms as companies embrace their data assets to affect their businesses and ultimately human lives. When it comes to healthcare, it’s easy to think there is no such thing as too much data. However, with limited time to address urgent medical issues, vast quantities of data aren’t always evaluated in time to uncover distinct patterns that could guide treatment.
Partners Healthcare, a hospital system in the Boston area, saw the same issue and sought to bring better clinical care outcomes with Dell EMC’s Analytic Insights Module. Brent Richter, Director of Enterprise Research at Partners Healthcare recently sat down for an interview with Dave Vellante at SiliconAngle. Richter discussed how Partner’s leveraging of incredible flows of patient data that are matched and reconciled between hospitals in the network, and blended with their own BioBank of sequenced genomes to support Precision Medicine. To illustrate the power of data analytics, Richter shares a staggering early success using Analytic Insights Module, where data analytics led physicians to forego the typical path of “try-and-fail” cancer treatments for a particular patient. Instead their analysis revealed that they would achieve a better outcome for the patient if they focused on treatment using a drug called Crizotinib. Normally not used for the type of cancer this patient had, Analytic Insights Module has uncovered that the genetics of the tumor which had fully metastasized, matched a treatment used successfully elsewhere. To the delight of all, this course of treatment managed to greatly reduce the cancer in only 2 weeks. Partners Healthcare is harnessing all their patient data to reveal new insights for personalized medicine and customized treatments that just aren’t possible with traditional analytical methods – until now.
