Abstract: The paper investigates the importance of data governance to healthcare organizations. First, the paper introduces the main pillars of data governance namely, data quality, compliance, and business transformation. The paper then outlines the perceived challenges that may affect the adoption of data governance strategies. The paper then proposes a new framework for data governance within healthcare organizations. More importantly, the paper presents a case study on a leading tertiary care hospital in the Middle East in order to investigate the impact of absence of data governance. 179,450 patients’ data records were analysed within three outpatient clinics. Discrepancies in the total numbers of seen patients were discovered between electronic data records and manually collected data. The main sources of the discrepancies were identified within each clinic and were rooted to the violation of hospital policies, the disregard to data related rules and policies and the lack of accountabilit y on the data entered into the electronic systems. Finally, the paper concludes with identifying research directions that requires further investigation in this area. (More)
