In today’s healthcare industry, data-driven decision-making is essential for efficient operations and improving patient care. The Montgomery County Hospital District (MCHD) in Texas faced the challenge of achieving data flexibility to standardize and combine organization-wide data. With data analysis expertise and the desire to do more with their data, MCHD wanted to take their analysis to the next level without taking up too much manual and time-consuming effort.
