The ability to define, measure, and track information is central to transforming Jefferson into a value-based healthcare partner. Access to reliable data is at the heart of building a value-based culture. From source to delivery, a chain of trust must be enforced so data producers, analyzers, and consumers are confident that data is being appropriately and accurately used.
Data Governance is the methodology that explicitly acknowledges data as a strategic asset and establishes processes to govern the use of that data to create maximum value for patients, students, faculty, staff and the overall community.
The data governance program at Jefferson consists of three bodies:
Data Governance Executive Council (DGEC): Made up of senior leaders across Jefferson who are responsible to define and drive data governance program objectives across the organization.
Data Stewardship Workgroups (DSW): Include operational leaders who run the data governance program for their respective functions. Five workgroups have been created: Quality, Patient Access, Finance, Research, and Legal & Compliance.
Data Governance Program Office (DGPO): Facilitates the overall data governance operations and ensures alignment between the Council and Stewardship Workgroups.
