State and county public health officials collect so much data, but without the time and resources, it’s hard to make that data actionable. But what if clinics could partner with large data companies to find a way to use the available data to make a big difference in people’s lives? By building partnerships, data companies and clinics could develop a use case and implement focus groups with all of the necessary stakeholders—patients, clinic staff, technologists, and data experts. Together, they could analyze feedback and insights to share data effectively.
