How enterprise data warehouse management turns hospital CIOs into 'heroes'

In a new post published to, Dale Sanders, Mentor CIO for the Cayman Islands National Health System, calls the enterprise data warehouse a CIO's "last chance to be a transformational hero in healthcare." EDW implementation, he says, allows CIOs to own the process of improving healthcare quality and costs. "I've been a CIO for 22 years … but the one area that is consistently recognized as the most valuable to the organizations that I served is my leadership of the EDW and analytics strategy," he says. "Through EDW, a CIO can truly manage the data needs of everyone in an organization rather than one vertical at a time." Post
