LAURA MADSEN MANAGER, ENTERPRISE ANALYTICS & DATA WAREHOUSE • CHILDREN’S HOSPITALS & CLINICS OF MINNESOTA

The story

Laura currently leads the Enterprise Analytics and Data Warehouse team at Children's Minnesota. She’s also an international keynote speaker on Healthcare BI. Laura has written two books: Healthcare Business Intelligence: A Guide to Empowering Successful Data Reporting and Analytics and Data Driven Healthcare. As a healthcare data evangelist, she takes great pride in the small role she plays every day in the health of kids.

The highlights

  1. Analysts don’t always get the answers they’re anticipating. But, by having access to large sets of data, Laura’s team has the freedom to keep asking questions for informed insights.

  2. The team at Children’s Minnesota is now able to provide transparency using daily dashboards—giving them the knowledge they need to make data-driven decisions.

  3. To be a data-driven organization you have to focus on changing behaviour with information, not just providing data about what happened. Laura’s team ensures that the data they’re working with is timely and contextual, which ensures it’s actionable.

  4. In anticipation of flu season, Laura’s team was able to gain insights into their data by combining internal data with publicly available data.

  5. Data is revolutionizing the healthcare industry—and being able to harness all data means that Laura and her team have the potential to change everything.
