This tool was developed to address what we saw as a gap in the safety net for defining and assessing analytics capability in health centers, and to educate them on some of the complexity and nuance of working with data and building a data-driven culture.
The assessment covers three domains: People, Process and Technology. This is a pretty standard framework for understanding how to build capability, or generally what to consider when making a significant change or improvement within an organization.
Within each domain there are a number of factors. This assessment offers up indicators that show how these factors manifest within organizations at different levels. To align these metrics to give users a sense of their overall analytic capability, we’ve broken down these examples into four stages: reactive, responsive, proactive and predictive.
