This global, nonprofit healthcare organization provides public healthcare programs to underserved and vulnerable populations, including Medicaid, Medicare, and Marketplace. Due to the nature of their business, they have a unique and significant demand for information. Their information management group recently began a vital initiative to implement a data supply chain strategy to develop more mature business practices that leverage their data and insights.
They implemented a strategy that gathers data from hundreds of source systems and builds a Hadoop data lake to serve their data warehouse and analytical requirements. However, the current execution was not achieving their goals — both the strategy and delivery of data to the organization were falling short of timeliness and quality expectations.
Recognizing the need to change their strategy and implementation, they reached out to Fusion to partner with them in creating a data solution that would ensure the quality and timeliness of their data and subsequent analytics.
Their goal was to implement a data supply chain delivery model that would accelerate the availability of high-quality data for their business users. Based on business needs and regulatory requirements in the healthcare space, they needed to ensure good data quality throughout the entire data flow and create a data governance model for alignment with the different departments and federal and state compliance.
