Data Governance
Data Governance is “enterprise authority that ensures control and
accountability for enterprise data through the establishment of decision rights and
data policies and standards that are implemented and monitored through a formal
structure of assigned roles, responsibilities, and accountabilities”. An example of
data governance is data usability, if you want your employees to use your data, it
needs to be accessible and easy to understand. Data should be stored in one
location and organized in a simple, logical way. Additionally, every employee in
your organization should understand what each piece of data means, how its
collected, and how to use it.
In some cases, data governance has an effect of poor data governance on
healthcare facilities and patient care. Lack of uniformity to name one. Here’s an
example. Let’s say a healthcare provider is trying to analyze data from two
different sources, their MPM and their EHR. Both deal with patient demographics
but might have different definitions of what constitutes their demographics. Their
age brackets might vary (one might set a limit at ages 18 to 29 and another might
draw the line at 18 to 35), which can prevent seamless integration for
demographic analysis. Though less harmful, this lack of uniformity can curtail the
ability of departments to have a common understanding and derive meaningful BI
from their shared data. Eliminating data inconsistencies or adjusting inaccuracies
are temporary fixes if only your executives are committed to making a change.

Employees across your organization need to embrace the ideals of effective data
governance if your organization is going to gain useful and accurate intelligence
from your data.
The importance of data accuracy is to make sure data within the record is
accurate across the entire record (that is, the data is valid with the appropriate test
results and placed into the proper patient record). While the accuracy of this data
is important for individual treatment planning, it is vital for the development of
statewide systems of care and assessing the type of co-occurring conditions that
incur healthcare costs and impact behavioral health issues. The importance of data
integrity is that data is being used to verify the identity of an individual to ensure
that the correct patient is receiving the appropriate care and to support billing
activity. Ensuring the integrity of healthcare data is important because providers
use them in making decisions about patient care. Which leads to the Principle of
retention: Create a process for proper retention of information based on
requirements from regulations, accrediting organizations, and company policy.
Ahima created a quality data management model to support the need for true and
accurate data.
Data accuracy helps physicians at any practice to be informed of a
patient’s history, tendencies, previous complications, current conditions and likely
responses to treatment. It also allows quick treatment for patients in the most
efficient and appropriate way possible. Because hospitals tend to have
